Learn Precision in 15 minutes

Suppose you are approached by a reasonable Flight C that is currently playing either 2/1 GF or Standard American bidding. Your prospective partner wants to play Precision and the session starts in 15 minutes. You always agree to play whatever system partner prefers including this. What topics do you discuss and in what order?

My list:

1) Let's keep 15-17 NTs and 20-21 2NTs.

2) Open all other 16+ hands 1. Respond 1 over 1 with all hands 8 HCP or less. Any other bid is unconditional GF and natural, and may be 4 carder only at 1 level.

3) If you have 11-15 points, 5 or more s, s is your longest suit and not 5332 shape, open 2. Over 2, 2 by responder is artificial and forcing for 1 round, jump shifts are GF. 2 of a MAJOR or 2NT over 1 can be passed.

4) 1 - 1 - 1NT shows 18 or 19. 1 - 1 - 2NT shows 22-24.

5) 2 opening shows three suits other than s and 11-15 points. Responses are sign off at minimum, invitational at jump, and 3 is a general game force.

6) 1 must be announced as could be as short as 2.

7) Everything else as per your current card.
