    As far as I know, Chris Ryall came up with it!

    More than 5 years.


Legality of Rough 2s:

  1. Are the Rough 2C and Rough 2D legal in the UK?

    Yes, they are currently legal at level 2 and above, which covers almost every club and competition in the UK. See the EBU orange book (pages 36-37), which can be obtained free of charge from the EBU, or downloaded from the laws and ethics committee page of the EBU website.

  2. Are the Rough 2C and Rough 2D legal in the USA?

    I don't think so. From looking at the ACBL charts, it seems that the Rough 2C and 2D openings aren't legal at either general chart or mid-chart level.

  3. Are the Rough 2C and Rough 2D legal in other countries?

    Not sure, but I expect so.
