item 2 Collins Winning Bridge: Basic Acol by Lederer, Rhoda Paperback Book The Fast - Collins Winning Bridge: Basic Acol by Lederer, Rhoda Paperback Book The Fast. $ Free shipping. No ratings or reviews yet. Be the first to write a review. Best Selling in Nonfiction. See all.   That could well be the book I was thinking of, although it is a long time ago and I cannot remember properly (another possibility is Basic Acol by Cohen/Lederer). I do remember the oddities - not just the NT and 5 card majors but also, for example, using 1M - 4 ♦ as a general GF raise.

This book is intended as a handy reference to accompany a bridge class or for people who play a little already and need to brush up their knowledge of the basic bidding sequences. The bidding system described is based on the latest 'Standard English' version of Acol. All the basic bidding sequences are covered plus a few common conventions. Claire Potter Senior Editor.
