This is the documentation on the Internet of Mr. Neill Currie of California, United States, as presented by Mr. Tony Melucci of San Diego, California, United States, who was declared King of Bridge in the year 1995. The origin of the designation is a play on syllables of the surname of the developer and the American tradition of -fie-ing everything, such as bridg-e-fie or dumm-i-fie, examples of words which do not exist, but which are understandable nevertheless.

The opening bids are presented below. The details of the system are included on the web pages provided by Mr. Tony Melucci. The system has been developed by both Mr. Neill Currie and Mr. Tony Melucci. A date is not provided.
