mid-nineteenth century when Charles Goren popularized the point -count
system of hand evaluation and bridge bidding, a system that became known
widely as "Standard American", there have been significant advances in the
art of bidding, advances that have been time-tested and proven effective.
Unfortunately "Standard American" did not keep pace. Early point-count
standards undervalue many hands. Furthermore, many traditional bidding rules
became obsolete and fell by the wayside as new ideas were created,
time-tested and adopted by the most innovative players. Prominent among the
new methods are five-card majors, limit raises, preemptive two-level
openers, the Stayman convention, and a reconstruction of the entire Notrump
bidding scheme. Standard American 21 presents an integrated, modern
contract bridge bidding system. The entire system can be adopted quite
readily by players of intermediate skills and beyond. Here for the first
time bridge players have the tools to achieve real precision bidding from
part-score through game and slam.
