Commonly Used Conventions | American Contract Bridge League

With only 15 words allowed during an auction and just 13 cards in each suit, bridge players have invented dozens of special bids, called conventions, to describe their strength and hand patterns. These descriptions are from the ACBL Bridge Bulletin series called the Bidding Toolkit. The ACBL textbooks Commonly Used Conventions and More Commonly Used Conventions contain detailed chapters on the use of many of today’s popular treatments.

Conventional Methods

There were many pioneers in establishing these conventions, and they are used, employed, and applied by bridge players globally. They were invented, implemented, revised, and became useful tools in the management of 26 cards. They serve as instruments of communication between two people playing the same game. Some have practically remained the same from the day of their conception, and some have experienced several variations.

Bidding Systems in the Game of Bridge

Ever since the game of bridge has become popular, competitive, and a means of leisure, bridge players from around the world have been trying to define 52 cards. They have devised many conventions, treatments, methods, formulas, techniques and approaches to describe 13 concealed cards to their partner who is also holding 13 concealed cards. With all of these arrangements, bridge players have been hoping to also convey a certain mathematical strength and card length.

List of bidding systems

This is a list of bidding systems used in contract bridge.[1][2] Bidding systems are characterized as belonging to one of two broadly defined categories:

natural bidding systems and

artificial bidding systems.

Nevertheless, each contains elements of the other given the number and variety of treatments and conventions that have been developed by bridge bidding theorists.
