Kath's tips:

Bridge Tip – Minor Transfer

Partner opens 1NT and you bid 2S (transfer):

Minor slams can be difficult to find, however there is a bid you can use which lightens the load a little. For example, in this case South rather likes clubs, and there’s a good way to tell partner – bid 2NT.  This says I like your clubs.  You’re promising 16+ HCPs and four card support or three card support with at least two top honours.  1NT: 2S: 2NT.  With a weak hand partner will bid 3C, with a strong hand, partner will take over the bidding aiming for slam, in this case 6NT.

Just as 2S over 1NT is a non bid, we use it to transfer, 2NT over a transfer is also a non bid, we’re bringing it back forgood use.

Point count: don’t forget to add length points for NT contracts– North has 13 HCPs and 15 total points (1 point for the 5thclub and 1 for the 6th)
