WHICH BIDDING SYSTEM?

WHICH NO FEAR BRIDGE SITE DO I WANT?

Five card majors biddingIf you are new to bridge you may not know that is more than one system of bidding. There are in fact many bidding systems but the two most widely used, especially by people learning bridge, are American style Five Card Majors (SAYC) and UK Standard English (ACOL).

As a rough guide: If you live in UK, Ireland or New Zealand you are more likely to be playing Acol bridge with Four Card Majors and Weak No Trump (12-14). If you live in USA and most of the rest of the world you are more likely to be playing American style Five Card Majors with Strong No Trump (15-17).
