The exact outage probability expression of two-way opportunistic relaying systems in amplify-and-forward strategy is presented, and a tight closed-form lower bound is obtained too. Simulation results are in excellent agreement with the derived expression and show that the signal-to-noise ratio gap between the lower bound and the actual performance is less than 1 dB.
