"The 2 Suited 5 Cards Major" by G.A. Castiglioni

"G.A.Castiglioni latest book, gives to a popular bidding system like “The 5 cards major“ an innovative, modern and aggressive version. Development over one in a suit opening bids is quite well thought for it allows a thorough  investigation of opener shape and, at the same time, makes it possible to differentiate 3 cards and 4 cards raises from responder. Bidding development after 1NT opening has  a lean and modern structure permitting the use of a weak 2♣  response.

Opening bids at 2 level are all weak, except 2♣, thus conferring to the system a distinct pre-emptive connotation. The chapter covering overcalls is very detailed and shows innovative concepts.

The whole system bidding structure is well balanced, bidding sequences use the same mechanism all over and thus are easily assimilated.

Definitely an aggressive bidding system difficult to play against mainly in Mitchell tournaments . I would suggest some caution when playing for IMPs.

A really good job".
