|  Rule of 500  When you Overcall or Preempt,
you guarantee partner you won't go down more than 2 tricks if vulnerable, or 3 tricks nonvulnerable. So if the opponents
double you, your side won't give up more than 500 points. This is why you need a good suit to Overcall or Preempt.
|  4th Suit Forcing  When you and partner bid all
4 suits there is usually an agreement that the bid of the 4th suit is Forcing; for one round or all the way to game.
4SF - 4th Suit Forcing, 4SGF - 4th Suit Game Forcing.
|  Kick Bid  When you make a bid and
then kick partner under the table to make sure they got the message. Usually frowned upon by the opponents.
|  Picture Bidding  Bidding your suits in such a way that partner can tell your shape. They might for instance find out through the bidding that you are you are 5-3-4 and deduce you have a singleton Club. This might really help them decide on game or slam! Get the picture?|
