Stayman and Jacoby Transfers
The Stayman convention is used to find a 4-4 Major suit fit after one partner has opened
1NT or 2NT. Responder bids an artificial 2♣ and the Notrump bidder then bids a 4-card
Major if she has one, or 2 or 3 ♦ otherwise.
The Jacoby Transfer convention is used to uncover a 5-3 Major suit fit after one partner has
opened 1NT or 2NT. A response of ♦s asks opener to
bid ♥s, a response of ♥s asks
opener to bid ♠s.
The two conventions complement each other, that's why they are together in this set of practices.
