Theoretical Bidding System
#1
I am somewhat dissatisfied with the CABS.

Specifically, I don't like the bids assigned to 51 and 59.
  • 51: This bid states that you have Aces Around (a common occurrence); its weakness is that it is easily stopped by any previous bid.
  • 59: This bid states that you have Double Aces Around (a very rare occurrence); its weakness is that it unnecessarily takes an under60 bid away from what another player may use to communicate.

What if the following changes where made:
  • 59 is replaced by 100.
  • 51 becomes +2. What was previously considered a 20 Meld bid is now an Aces Around bid.
  • +1 to all Meld bids. Shift these bids up 1 point to accommodate for the new Aces Around bid.
  • 58 becomes 59: Since the 59 bid is now available, the Unlimited Meld (58) bid moves up and into the highest under60 bid spot.

Benefits:
  • 59 is replaced by 100: This frees up more room to bid under 60, REALLY stymies the opposition's ability to communicate, and is an unmistakable representation.
  • 51 becomes +2: No longer shall the Aces Around bid live in trepidation of other bids. "Free at last, Free at last, thank God almighty Aces Around bids are free at last." - mickmackusa
  • 58 becomes 59: Now there is more room to make under60 Meld bids.

Side Effects:
  • INFLATION: with all Meld bids being one step higher, the ceiling of 60 will be reached sooner.

Have I missed anything?
What do you think about the viability of my theoretical bidding system?
Would you change anything?
