Bidding Systems by Levels & ACBL Convention Cards

Here are the details of the AiB 2/1 Game Forcing Systems by Level.  The spreadsheet below is a more detailed "blow up" of the ACBL convention card.  Each column (color coded) contains a level of the six 2/1 GF systems.  Each row of the spreadsheet contains a collection of affiliated concepts.   For each of the six levels that are detailed in the sheet below we also have the ACBL convention cards available (in GIFs).  

For easy printing, click on one of the six links below to open the card in a new window.  To preview the cards or explore click on the images below that.

*The Masterpoint ranges listed above are approximate levels of experience at which our students adopt these bidding levels.  But each player's development varies and certainly it is not expected that one will learn an entire level of bidding concepts or conventions all at once. 

The concepts and agreements are grouped together by level to help give you an idea of what to learn next.  This should help give you a curriculum to work though as you are developing your game and partnership agreements.
