Acol - he does what he feels like until he feels like stopping, and is too aggressive at the wrong times.

There are some rumors that Tony Blair enforced Acol as the system for their
partnership. G.W. agreed in principle, but 4c has to be always gerber. ;)

I think he would just play golf. He wouldn't need to play bridge, his brother in Florida could always manipulate the tournament results so that GW became a world bridge champion.

He would play a home brewed 3½ card minor system with the following gadgets:

1. Gerber.
2. Reverse Gerber.
3. Flannery.
4. Reverse Flannery.
5. Capp.
6. Reverse Capp.
7. Fishbein.
8. Reverse Fishbein.
9. Reverse White House (he invented that one himself last night).
10. Air Force 1. *)
11. Middle from 2 small.

And he would refuse to play with anyone who doesn't play reverse White House. What is the White House convention you may ask. Here it is:

2 is a pre-empt in any suit at the 1-level. Then he reversed it to 1 as a pre-empt in any suit at the 2-level. The convention is only used at white colours, hence the name.

*) Air Force 1 requires that partner holds 4 aces. You open 7NT on

KQx
KQx
KQx
KQJx

The sublime thing about the convention is that responder bids NT at the appropriate level depending on how many aces he has.

P.S. Oh, and I forgot Stay-man. It seems impossible to get rid of that man ;)

It is a shame it never worked the other way, I am sure GB shouted duck just before he shot him.

I was just about to say Bludgeon too!!

Did what he thought he could do.
He's justified and he's ancient, and he drives an ice cream van.

He would probably play the Preemptive Strike system and it would work a lot better than the Obama System, which is "Wait until the opponents find their best spot and then sacrifice", and has never won an international match.

Bid 7SX on the belief that his opponents are secretly stockpiling hearts. This is where the term slam dunk originated. Colin Powell will be brought in to explain why this is a good idea.

He would cut the requirements to bid or play at all for the top 1% of the players, and have the rest play a knockout round-robin of "War". When the finals roll around, he claims victory, while standing on the deck of an aircraft carrier, dressed as a member of the 1960 Blue Team.

Nice system.
