I decided to develop a natural system (no asking bids, no step responses, or relays) but even better than 2/1, starting with the simple adjustment of using transfers to the one club opening. It was marvelous how well the structure works, getting not only to the right strain, but also at the right level, and played by the correct hand. I then discovered that the natural one diamond opening also provided tremendous benefits over 2/1.
Plus you will find that Toucan makes it difficult for the opponents to bid and defend when we open one club.

I have played Precision for several decades, winning dozens of regionals and even the National Open Swiss Teams and wrote Enhanced Precision available at Master Point Press.
I hope you enjoy reading, playing, and winning with Toucan as much as I did in creating it.
