Extra Length Transfer Bids

Click to enlarge

Modern one-way bidding, has these main objectives:

  1. To reach game contracts in a way that gives away least information to the defenders (making the opening lead and defence more difficult).
  2. To play no-trump contracts, with the stronger hand as declarer.
  3. To provide maximum slam bidding comfort by developing economic mechanisms of suit agreement and showing side-suit shortages.
  4. To stop in a part score, where appropriate.

These four basic objectives, sometimes in conflict with each other, have to be reconciled. Extra Length Transfer Bids, presents an innovative approach to slam bidding.
