Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Transfers after 1NT - 2C - 2D?
Sorry, no. It comes from their book Tournament Acol, now presumably out of print for many years. If I get the time I'll post a summary here. (Won't be today)
Transfers after 1NT - 2C - 2D?

1!H - 1!S - 2!D - 3 of major
I don't understand Kit's comment. I should have thought that when three suits have been bid a natural non-forcing 2NT was quite useful. I'm quite happy to score -50 when the macho pairs are in 3NT-2. And I don't see the problem after a FSF 3 ...
