LH Blue Card Simplified Version

Theis simplified version is a little easier to handle than that of LH Blue Card, so good for those players have not very much experience in bridge competition yet.

Its 1 opening is simply 12~14HP range, no overload. And the one major opening keeps traditional 5-cards instead of 4-cards.

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