                                                Jacoby Transfers  (holding 5♠/5♥)

NB:  With interference, transfers are still “on”!
         Use “X” as “They stole my bid”

 1. Partner opens/overcalls 1 NT  (15-18)

2. You hold 5♥ or 5♠ so you want partner to bid one of these suits!
    (with 6+ in a major suit
è see Texas Transfers) 

3. To transfer bid the suit “just below”(2♦è2♥) (2♥è2♠)

4. If you have bid 2 then partner (who opened 1NT) will re-bid 2♥
    If you have bid 2
then partner (who opened 1NT) will re-bid 2♠   

5.

With a balanced hand you now seek the final level as follows:    

 

  18+    HCP ► Bid 5NT (partner decides on 6NT/6♥/6♠)    

 

  16-17 HCP ► Bid 4NT (partner bids 6NT/6♥/6♠ with max HCP)    

 

  10-15 HCP ► Bid 3NT (partner may raise to 4♥/♠)    

 

    8-9   HCP ► Bid 2NT (partner may raise to 3NT/4♥/4♠)

 

       0-7   HCP   Pass (Partnership probably holds less than 25TP)

6.

With UN-balanced hand seek the final level as follows:    

 

  18+    HCP ► Bid 5NT (partner decides on 6NT/6♥/6♠)    

 

  16-17 HCP ► Bid 4NT (partner bids 6NT/6♥/6♠ with max HCP)          

 

  10-15 HCP ► With a second 5 card suit bid that suit  (game force)                       

 

    8-9   HCP ► Bid 2NT (partner may raise to 3NT/4♥/4♠ if appropriate)

 

    0-7   HCP ►  Pass (Partnership almost always holds less than 25TP)
