LH Green Card is for light opening. All 2/2/2/2 openings are weak two bids.

And in the third position, 5 cards weak two bids are encouraged. Another feature is the 1/1 openings for the range of 11-14HP (when 12-14HP range maybe 4+ cards or 11HP 5+ cards), and the 1 opening only for those 11-14HP without a major suit or those hands minor suit much better than the major suit, such as 4 cards major with 6 cards minor or even 5 cards major with a 7 cards minor. This choice is very worth a try for experienced players.

Here is the brief description of the system and hope you enjoy it and take home master points with it.
