Bids that Require Advance Preparation

General Bidding Style

Strong club. Starts at 16 if balanced.
1N is good 12 to 15; we'll pass balanced 11 and bad 12's (no 5 card suit, poor spots).
1D is 4+, unbalanced.
1M is unbalanced (6+ card suit or 4 card side suit).

Opening Leads AND Leads in the Middle of the Hand

Suits: 3/low, J denies, aK asks for count at 5 level, or alarm clock (usually side singleton) at lower levels.

NT: 1/2/3/4, Jack denies. A attitude; K unblock or count.
Mid-hand: attitude primary, but try to lead 3/5 if spot looks consistent, e.g. lead the 3 from K732 or K873.

Defensive Signals

UDCA. Frequent suit preference.
Exceptions to attitude at trick 1:
K lead at 5 level: count
Singleton in dummy or presumed led in a suit contract: suitpref
Can't beat dummy's J or equivalent at NT: count
Futureless suit at NT, such as AKQ in dummy: suitpref.

Usually give multiple shades of SP before count, except with entry-less suit in dummy.
