The defensive signals in bridge are, in theory at least, not hard to grasp. Top priority goes to attitude. An unnecessarily high card tells partner that you have useful goodies in that suit. When attitude is known or clearly irrelevant, you signal count. You play your lowest card with an odd number, or start an echo (high-low) with an even number. If both attitude and count are known or irrelevant, you send a suit-preference signal. Your lowest card asks for the lower-ranking of the other two side suits, your highest card for the higher-ranking suit.
