All alerts and explanations must be made privately to opponents - not to partner or to the table.
All players in our Indi Tourneys must use the Acol bidding system :
|Weak 1 NT = 12/14||4 Card Majors|
|Transfers to majors|
(except after X or overcall)
|2clubs = strong game force, or 23+ balanced hand|
|Weak other 2 bids (not benji)||Blackwood|
|Strong jump shift responses||Weak jump overcalls|
|Takeout X||Negative X|
|4NT over actual or effective NT opening is quantative slam invitation|
|None of the above bids need to be alerted. They should, however, be explained to opponents upon request.|
|benji (ordinary or reverse)||three strong 2 bids|
|Unusual NT||RKCB 0314 (or as agreed)|
|unassuming cue bid||michaels cue bid|
|All of these additional bids must be alerted to opps (not to partner or to the table).|
