Statistics

Next to the 'good feeling' at the bridge table, inspired by the fact that you can handle all

situations with MUTOS, but also because you will be remembered as the annoying opponent

but who alerts everything in a correct way and explains everything , there is also the more

scientific, statistical argumentation that explains why MUTOS is an improvement, an

evolution.

ƒ In MUTOS you bid all hands from 16hp with 1♣ . This is creating simplicity : you only

need to manage one opening for all these hands. Coverage : 10% of all possible

hands or 25% of opening-hands.

ƒ All hands between 12-15 hp are opened with either 1♦ ( 8%), 1♥ ( 9%) or 1♠ ( 8.7%).

This groups 26% of all possible hands.

ƒ The "gain" in MUTOS is that you enter the auction with much more weak hands based

on distribution strengths. 17,2 % compared with 2,6% for multi 2♦ and 6% for

Muiderberg.

ƒ Do not be surprised that often you must pass : in 45% of the cases you are too weak or

you do not have the proper distribution to open. In traditional systems this percentage is

53 % !
