Bids that Require Advance Preparation

Against Strong NT:
X = 1 minor or both majors
2C = clubs & a major
2D = diamonds & a major
2M = natural

Against Weak NT:
2C = Majors

General Bidding Style

5-Card Majors, String NT, 2/1 GF (2C could be balanced 2+, 2D/2H natural 5+).
We open most 12s, some 11s with shape.

Opening Leads AND Leads in the Middle of the Hand

vs NT: 4th best, might lead top or second from bad suits.
vs Suits: 3rd from even, low from odd.

In middle of hand if we lead a suit and choose to show count, same agreement applies as on opening lead (3rd/lo vs suit, 4th vs NT).


Rusinow vs NT and Suits, except
1) In partner's suit
2) In dummy's suit
3) Leader has preempted and leads a side suit

In middle of hand, a switch J or 9 denies the A/K/Q in suit; ten either shows a high honor (AKQ) or may be from shortness.

Lead of spot cards in middle of hand: tends toward count, but sometimes attitude.

Defensive Signals

Standard count and attitude.
Standard discards. In any suit, first discard is attitude, next discard is count.
Signaling priority: Attitude, Count, Suit-pref.
Suit-pref in trumps.
