Not heard of a top pair playing Acol for a while - think it's dead and buried for team play at those levels - too weak a system for slam bidding.
It's decent at pairs (matchpoints), although again I doubt many experts play it, where you can be quite aggressive low in the auction but you're not stretching for games or slams.

I learned using Acol and now play 2/1 - wouldn't go back (although I do like the weak NT).
