Transfers Extension

Breaking the Transfer/Super-acceptance

Super-acceptances are a useful and popular adjunct to “Jacoby Transfers,” so much so, that they have become part of standardized bidding for most Bridge Players. The original advantage in using superacceptances was that after a transfer to either Major suit by Responder, a super-acceptance by the 1-NT Opener, shows a hand that has the potential to produce a Game-level contract opposite many responding hands that would otherwise “pass” a simple acceptance. In addition, the use of super-acceptances act preemptively when Responder holds minimum values and the Opponents are potentially likely to compete following a “transfer,” and a subsequent “pass” by the Responder.
