Kath answers ... Transfers

Q. Please explain how transfers work

A. There are two ways transfers work:

1. To rescue partner from a 1NT contract which is unlikely to make because you have no points or entries into your hand, example, partner opens 1NT and you hold:
107654
J92
10543
6
Partner will hold at least two spades in their hand and should make 8 tricks with club ruffs and good holdings in the other suits. 1NT: 2H: 2S: Pass

2. To find a major fit when you do hold points, eg: 1NT: 2D: 2H: ?
♠ AJ10
QJ976
K3
♣ 976

Holding 11 HCPs you know you have game somewhere, maybe hearts. Partner will hold at least two hearts. The bidding would now go: 1NT: 2D: 2H: 3NT (NOT 3H, why? A 3H bid is showing a 6 card heart suit and around 7-9 total points).

Firstly, you are telling partner that you hold a 5 card heart suit and at least 10-14 HCPs. Secondly you are asking partner if they have 3 card support. Partner will pass 3NT with 2 card support or bid 4H with 3 or more card support. If you hold a 6 card major, then the bidding would proceed: 1NT: 2D: 2H: 4H.
