Bids that Require Advance Preparation

Woolsey/opps' strong NT:
Double = 4-card M, longer minor
2C = majors
2D = 1 major
2M = 5-card M with 4+ minor

Two-tiered splinters over 1M:
3M+1 = some weaker splinter.
4X = stronger splinter
1H-3NT = stronger spade splinter

General Bidding Style

14+ to 17 NT openings
5-card M's
4-4 minors, opener's discretion, no particular rules
Middle-of-road on opening bid strength. Will pass some balanced 12-counts, open some balanced 11's. In general, 2nd seat initial actions are strongest in context. 3rd seat can be lighter, especially if good lead director.

Opening Leads AND Leads in the Middle of the Hand

3rd/low vs. suits
4th vs. NT, or 2nd highest/highest from small cards.
King is big lead vs. NT, A/Q attitude
Typically lead attitute in middle of hand.

Defensive Signals

Standard count, attitude, and Smith.
Primary signal is attitude, then count.
Nothing special otherwise.
