It has lots of hands to practice with!! And it makes sense, I mean about why one would want to do 2 over 1. A must for those considering switching to 2 over 1 game force! Color adds, too.
All situations which are hard to bid in 2/1MF are not mentioned at all or only very shortly:
- How do I bid with a 4-5-2-2 hand?
- How do I find a 5-3 fit in Hearts after 1S-1NT-2C?
- How do I continue after 1D-2C?
So, if you are new to 2/1MF it is a good book to start with. But if you really want to start playing this, you will have do some more reading.
Like most advocates of 2/1 and its essential companion the 1NT Forcing response, Grant and Rodwell highlight the advantages and soft pedal the disadvantages of adopting this system, but like all conventions, there is no free lunch, and you always have to give something up to get something of advantage and 2/1 is no exception. Advocates of 2/1 will argue that it allows partnerships to bid games and slams more comfortably, and Grant and Rodwell provide plenty of examples to illustrate that advantage.
At its most basic level, 2 over 1 is not particularly complicated, and it doesn't take a complete book to describe the system; so Grant and Rodwell fill it out with more examples than necessary to get their point across. For those who enjoy reading bridge columns in the newspaper, you will find this part enjoyable. After finishing the basic treatment of 2/1 and 1NT Forcing, you can leave this book on your nightstand and read an example hand or two each night before dropping off to sleep.
