Bidding systems
Ashok, I agree with Max's comments, especially about avoiding much complex systems and focusing on defense & declarer play. For the "how much sophistication" part, this was my reply to a similar post:
Convention Analysis
I would suggest to have a look on these; (Larry Cohen's system suggestion: "not for beginners and not for National Champions, but for anyone in between". "...I've taken what I've learned from 35 years playing ...
Forgive and forget?

But if the field consists more comparable & strong players, better. As ...
In the Well: Jeff Meckstroth

Assuming that most of the beginners and world class players already know themselves, (or, if not, leaving these edges ...
Why do you play bridge?
