Truscott - A novel defensive bid used over opponent's "Big Club" opening bid.  Generally, an overcall of a suit shows a two-suited hand, indicating the suit bid and the next higher suit (if Spades, then Clubs in inferred).  To show non-touching suits, the overcaller's bid is the Double to include the RHO's suit; otherwise, the overcaller bids 1 Notrump for non-touching suits not including RHO's suit.  A 6+ card suit is simply bid at the 2 level or higher.
