Transfer or Pass?


 by Richard Pavlicek

Stephen Paul of Alberta (Canada) asked, “With the South hand is it worthwhile to pass partner’s 1 NT (15-17) rather than transfer to spades? The essence being that the weak suit, balanced shape, and outside high cards should be adequate for partner in notrump.”

I routinely transfer and expect it to be a clear winner, especially because the spade suit has good texture, which is more important than high cards in a low-level suit contract. Let’s find out.

For a simulation I created 10,000 random deals with the South hand fixed. North: 15-17 HCP; balanced; 5-card major allowed if doubleton is J-x or better. East was constrained not to have any appropriate action (bid or double) over 1 NT, and West similarly if 1 NT is passed out.

Results are shown below. Trick Average shows the average number of tricks won by declarer. Make Percent shows how often the contract is made (including with overtrick) and Overtrick Percent how often an overtrick is made. The second table compares the bids directly, with the better choice leftmost. Net W-L (matchpoints or board-a-match verdict) counts +1 for a win and -1 for a loss. Net Score and Net IMPs are calculated twice, first with declarer nonvul (green) then with declarer vul (red). Plus values show the net gain over 10,000 deals.

Not even close. Transferring to spades is a big winner at any form of scoring and vulnerability. In practice the edge would be even greater, because West will sometimes compete, then knowing about the spade suit will allow opener to compete further with a fit. Or in the words of Archie Bunker, “Case closed!”

Below are 100 of the 10,000 deals, including the first 20, last 20, and 60 in-between with the greatest IMP gains (30 for each option). Numbers after each contract show the tricks won by declarer with double-dummy play all-around.
