FLINT CONVENTION

A convention invented by the English player, Jeremy Flint, designed to allow the partnership to play in three of a major after an opening bid of 2NT. Immediate responses of 3 and 3♠ are natural and forcing, promising at least five cards but 3 is an artificial request for opener to bid 3.

With long hearts and a weak hand, responder then passes; with long spades, he converts to 3♠. A development of the convention allows the partnership to play in 4♣ or 4 (responder converts 3 to 4♣ or 4).

Nowadays, transfer bids have rendered Flint almost obsolete.
