The 2 Suited

by G.A. Castiglioni

The 2 suited Club has Precision as a starting point.

All bidding systems based on 1 strong opening, have, in general, a weak point. Opponents overcalls mainly, but not only, on 1 opening, tend to disrupt the detailed bidding sequences constituting the known advantage of such systems.

For this reason a lot of attention has been devoted to overcalled bids. Thanks to the work done, I can say that usually overcalling 2 suited   bids turns out to be a loosing proposition. In fact, in most cases, overcalls have the only effect of making bidding sequences easier and simpler.
The bidding technique, is the system main characteristic. Such technique allows the strong hand to remain hidden from opponents thus making it more difficult for defence to act efficiently.
The frequent use of 2 suited bids, in openings, responses and overcalls, is the other system main feature. Two suited bids are both constructive and destructive. With strong hands, 2 suited bids allow for a thorough shape description, showing non only suit length but also singleton / voids, while with weak hands can make part score proposals for advantageously defensible contracts having a distinct pre-emptive value.
