WHICH BIDDING SYSTEM?
In most parts of the world, notably the US and many European countries, the bidding system is built around Five Card Majors.
There are various approaches to playing Five Card Majors, with one of the most popular being SAYC (Standard American Yellow Card) which is also the 'default' bidding system for Internet bridge. The bidding system used at No Fear Bridge is closely based on SAYC.

The Rule Of 20
The Rule of 20 is used only when opening the bidding. Is used to test whether hands with less than 13 total points are suitable for opening.
Add up your High Card Points (HCP) and add the length of your two longest suits. If the total is 20 or more then you can open the bidding.
Hand 1 has 11 HCPs (12 total points). The lengths of the two longest suits are five and four. This makes a total of 20, so the hand is suitable for opening.
Hand 2 has only 10 HCPs (12 total points) but has two 5 card suits. It passes the Rule of 20. We open 1.
Hand 3 does not pass the Rule of 20.
