New ACBL Convention Card

The ACBL Convention Card has been redesigned and introduced to membership in 2022. Danny Sprung, Chair, Competition and Conventions Committee, presented the new convention card to the ACBL Board of Directors during national board meetings held in Austin.

While the new card looks familiar, the following changes were made:

  • Seldom-used conventions were removed, and more commonly used conventions were added.
  • Recent changes in alerts and announcements are reflected.
  • The one club and one diamond sections were expanded, providing more space to address different minor suit openings in different systems.
  • The right side of the card was reorganized with bids shown in ascending order of strain.

An Article explaining the changes and the proper way to complete the card was presented in the March issue of the ACBL Bridge Bulletin.
