The Full Disclosure [FD] utility is a development to assist full and automatic disclosure of your partnership agreements. It allows you to program your system into a Convention Card which then automatically alerts opponents as you bid
. FD alerts your agreements in much more detail than the normal alert box will allow, including suit lengths, what developments are likely from that point, as well as the exact nature of the bid being made.
Whilst you are learning a complex system such as OCP, FD has the added advantage that the BBO Windows client allows you to set BBO to alert YOU
about bids you are about to make, AND
about bids your partner has made. This turns FD into an unparalleled learning tool. It's a shame that the short shelf-life of the BBO Windows client will shortly bring this advantage to an end.
The 9 FD cards downloadable from here are split into 3 groups:
- Simple System
- Complex System
- Complex System with Kaplan Inversion
The 3 cards within each of these groups are for use against different Opponents
, depending on whether they are playing Precision, Precision with a Multi 2♦
, or a some other system. All
of the FD cards assume the use of a Variable 1NT, INTRO, and MOTOR.
