PostSubject: Simplified Defensive Signaling Mar 28 2017   Tue Jan 03, 2017 8:39 am



This simplified system applies to the following four situations:
1. you lead a suit
2. your partner leads a suit and you follow in the suit
3. the opponents lead a suit and you follow in the suit
4. partner or opponents lead a suit and you discard

1. When you lead a suit
Signal your honors
Lead a low spot card (2,3,4,5) ) to show an A,K or Q in the suit.
Lead a high spot card (7,8,9,10) to show none of these.
This system for lead signalling has been called BOSTON, bottom of something, top of nothing.

2. When your partner leads a suit and you follow
Signal whether partner should continue or change suits
Play a low spot card (2,3,4,5) if you want partner to change suits.
Play a high spot card (7,8,9 or 10) if you want partner to continue with the suit.
This system for play signalling is called Upside-Down. On the convention card in the Defensive Carding section, the attitude boxes under upside-down should be checked for suits and NT.

3. Signaling when the opponents lead a suit and you follow
Signal your honors
Lead a low spot card (2,3,4,5) ) to show an A,K or Q in the suit.
Lead a high spot card (7,8,9,10) to show none of these.
Like #1 above, this is BOSTON, bottom of something, top of nothing.

4. Discard signaling:
Signal the bad suits not the good ones
Pick your discard from suits without any trick taking potential which usually means no top cards or length. Unlike standard discard signaling, this does not use up cards from your good suits. Choose any spot card since high-low has no meaning in this type of discard signalling.
