Hello. Newbie poster, beginner/improver.
We were taught to respond (to 1NT) at the 2level of any 5 card suit, with 0-10 points. Our teacher advised that we were better placed bidding at this 2 level, rather than pass and potentially leaving ourselves in 1NT. (Even with no points) We understand this and are comfortable playing with it.
However, this precludes us using red transfers.
What is the general consensus about this ? Is using transfers a better option ?
