Conventions
Stayman, Transfers
STAYMAN

Everybody plays this one (If not they should)

Opener Responder

INT 2♣ Or 2NT 3♣

Responder is asking “Have you got a 4 card major (♠/♥) partner”

Without one, opener rebids 2♦ (or 3♦ after 2NT)

The Stayman convention was invented by George Rapee

in 1945, but the first article on the convention was

authored by Sam Stayman Rapee’s Partner,

and the convention was named for

the writer rather than the inventor.


Everyone Should Play this One

Transfers (Officially known as “Jacoby Transfers”)

 

After a1NT (12 -14pts) opening, a bid of “2/” is a Jacoby Transfer

INT - 2♦: Shows a 5-card Heart suit Opener MUST Bid 2

INT - 2: Shows a 5-card Spade suit Opener MUST Bid 2

                  (These Bids promises no strength whatsoever)

 

After Opener accepts the Transfer, you should proceed as follows:

Minimum Hands (0-10 points) Simply pass the transfer

 

1NT - 2- 2- Pass 0-10pts.

        4: Shows 10+ Points and a 6-card suit (Opener should pass)

                   3NT: Shows 12+ Points and a five card suit

       (Opener should bid 4 with 3 card support)

                   3: Shows 10 or 11 points and a 6 card suit

      (Opener should bid 4 with 12-14 points)

                   2NT: Shows 11 points and a 5 card suit

     (Opener should bid 4 with 12-14 points)

 

1NT - 2- 2♠ - Pass 0-10pts.

       4♠: Shows 10+ Points and a 6-card suit (Opener should pass)

                   3NT: Shows 12+ Points and a five card suit

       (Opener should bid 4with 3 card support)

                   3♠: Shows 10 or 11 points and a 6 card suit

      (Opener should bid 4with 12-14 points)

                   2NT: Shows 11 points and a 5 card suit

     (Opener should bid 4with 12-14 points)

 

The above is based on Week No Trump (12 – 14pts) adjust for strong (15 -17pts)

Please Note that 2♠ over1NT is showing 11pts and not considered as part of “Jacoby Transfer”

 

Responses to Partners weak NT opening

Opener                                 Responder

1NT                                        2♣ Usual “Stayman looking for majors

                                                2 Transfer to 2 showing 5

                                                2 Transfer to 2♠

                                                2♠ Exactly 11pts and No 5 Card Major

                                                2NT Exactly 12pts

                                                3♣/ 16+pts showing 5 card major Forcing

                                                3NT 16-18pts No 5 card major

                                                4C Gerber asking for Ace count

                                                4NT Exactly 20pts

                            (Asking partner to bid 6NT with 13/14pts pass with 12pts)

               (With 19pts bid 2♠ initially if partner bids 2NT sign off in 3NT)

(If Partner Jumps to 3NT (14pts) now bid 6NT)

Remember you need a minimum of 33pts between both hands to bid a small slam (6NT) when not using ACE-asking convention
