Modern one-way bidding, has these main objectives:
- 1. To reach game contracts in a way that gives away least information to the defenders (to make the opening lead and defence more difficult).
- 2. To play a no-trump contract the right way round, with the stronger hand as declarer.
- 3. To provide maximum slam bidding comfort by developing economic mechanisms of suit agreement and showing side-suit shortages.
- 4. To stop in a part score, where appropriate.
These four basic objectives, sometimes in conflict with each other, have to be reconciled. Extra Length Transfer Bids, presents an innovative approach to slam bidding.
