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:

Spade SuitK9xx  Heart Suit J10xx Diamond Suit10x Club SuitAxx.

Partner opens with 1Club Suit and RHO overcalls 1Diamond Suit. 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 1Spade Suit is “transfer” to 1NT, we use 1NT to show 4-4 in the majors.
