7 Bridge with Harold Schogger © DISOBEYING PARTNER – breaking transfers If you have been told to transfer BUT you have a feature such as the Ace or King in partner’s suit you may bid the suit in between and not “complete the transfer” 1NT2NT (trans to Diamonds) 3  (I have feature) 3NT (that’s good I can now go for it !!) 2  says partner please bid 3  and await further action if any 2NT says partner please bid 3  and await further action if any

8 Bridge with Harold Schogger © DISOBEYING PARTNER – breaking transfers If you have been told to transfer BUT you have a feature such as the Ace or King in partner’s suit you may bid the suit in between and not “complete the transfer” 1NT2NT (trans to Diamonds) 3  (No feature) NO BID (you’re a lot of good!!)

9 Bridge with Harold Schogger © DISOBEYING PARTNER – breaking transfers If you have been told to transfer BUT you have a feature such as the Ace or King in partner’s suit you may bid the suit in between and not “complete the transfer” 1NT2NT (trans to Diamonds) 3  (I have a feature) 3  (get lost I was weak from the outset !!) However 2  says partner please bid 3  and await further action if any 2NT says partner please bid 3  and await further action if any

10 Bridge with Harold Schogger © We have now lost the ability to bid 2NT in natural sense as that is transfer to Diamonds so what to do ? We still need to use 2  as transfer to Hearts We still need to use 2  as transfer to Spades We still need to use 2NT as transfer to Diamonds Therefore the only bid we can dabble with is the 2  Stayman bid So we now use NON PROMISORY Stayman ie every time we bid Stayman we may or may not have a four card Major More often that not we will in fact still have 4 spades or 4 Hearts
