A guide to the Acol System


This is a reasonably complete reference guide explaining what bids should mean in most auctions. There is no "Standard Acol" system, and many of the treatments of bids will be non-standard in some peoples eyes. It is a competant players system, not for beginners, although there are many principles that beginners should know.
