The Rodwell-Meckstroth system acc. to files from Bermuda Bowl 2003/2005. The system frequently uses transfers and variations in opening ranges. Please note many openings are of very different meanings open in 1-2 seat or 3-4 seat.

Bidding Style: aggressive, frequent upvaluing, less downvaluing. Play/defend decisions made by judgement, not mechanical rule. Both players have latitude to use judgement in any situation. Playing strength, Vulnerability, and level of bidding are paramount.
