M5N1 system preserves the advantages of the well-known five-card majors but, thru a logical approach, recovers free space vacant between successive standard bids, allowing you to know: opening hand's shape much better than usual: thus, after your partner's minor opening, you know the suit of his/her shortness, if any, before calling three notrump or not. Opening strength down to the nearest point, therefore providing an accurate value of your side's strength; this is useful for calling games and slams. Two books explain M5N1, the first one deals with major openings, the second with minor ones. Each can be used independently, allowing a progressive practice. Their first part, entitled "Free Style", is a condensed version of the system limited to the first three bids, while partners may continue auctions with natural bids on their own. It should delight players who don't want (yet) to dedicate more time to the following steps.
