We once upon a time played strong pass system, which was a simplified version of No Name orginally polish i guess.
Basicly it goes that Pass was forcing any 13+ hand and 1 was any weak under 8 hcp.
Most intresting was the treatment of 1 of a major bids. Their poínt range was 8-12 hcp. and they promise either 0-2 cards or 5+ cards in suit that was bid.
1C was balanced, semi-balanced or 3-suited and 1Nt promise major or minor 2-suiter.
Does that ring any bells cause i would like to find out more information bout this system. Any hints will be appreciated :) .

No Name is one of the strong pass systems found in the book "Introduction to Weak Opening Systems" by Slawinski and Ruminski. Suspensor is a later developement of No Name by Balicki and Zmudzinski. All this according to http://www.bridgeguy...forcingpass.pdf, written by Jan-Erik Larsson and Ben Cowling.

I would imagine Introduction to Weak Opening Systems is long out of print, or was never available in English, or both. Anyone know? Anyone have an ISBN for an English version (I don't read Polish)?

If looking for a particular system from the starting point of its opening bids then I think the first point of call is this link which can be found at Dan's website. As has been pointed out there are similarities to No Name and Suspensor but the actual system presented is not listed as far as I can see.
