Five & Dime
Beginning and intermediate bridge players have a hard time realizing that in order for responder to make a two over one bid of a new suit, it takes a five-card suit and 10 or more high card points.
So I use the saying “Five & Dime” to describe the requirements for that bid. They get a kick out of it and seem to remember the requirements a lot more.
