LH Blue Card

For the considerations of designing this convention card, please see "The Design considerations"

The testing with boards generator and real games approved that this Blue card has better chance of wining in competition comparing to SAYC or Precision.

This card is good for experienced players. If you just try it, you'll see the bright points of it.

I believe that if promoted well, this Blue Card will be seen in the bridge world championships.
