Back in Sweden I, of course, watch the play in Wuhan.
Playing transfers after overcalls (or double) at the 1-level is becoming more and more popular among experts. A hand from today’s finals in Wuhan:
K9xx J10xx 10x Axx.
Partner opens with 1 and RHO overcalls 1. A negative double would now indicate both majors, but playing transfers you can only show one of the majors (double shows hearts). We have a small gadget here. Since 1 is “transfer” to 1NT, we use 1NT to show 4-4 in the majors.
