Week 0200 : 22nd April 2024



The use of 4♣ and 4 bids as transfers to 4 and 4♠ respectively, either as opening bids or in response to 1NT/2NT. The transfer to 4 via 4♣ suggests a stronger hand than bidding 4 directly.

One benefit of playing that the transfer bid is two suits below the one shown is that it leaves room for partner to bid the in-between suit as a slam try.

Another is that partner is less likely to forget the bid is a transfer.

Playing South African Texas, the first hand would be a 4♠ opening and the second (stronger) hand a 4 opening.
