Strong 2-suited Overcalls
Strong 2-suited hands are measured by LTC which needs to lie in the following range:
Stronger hands need to be announced by, * Forcing, as 2-suited overcalls are non-forcing
Jump minor cue-bids
1-3 & 1-3. These bids announce a strong Major 2-suited hand.
Usually 5-5 or better. Note these jump cue bids are not affected if the minor is alerted.
3 minor jump overcall
Take these examples: (i) - 3 or (ii) - 3
These bids show a strong 2-suited hand 5-5 in the bid minor and the
highest ranking unbid Major. In the above example (i) Clubs+Spades and
(ii) Diamonds & Hearts.
This Multi 1NT overcall is used to show a strong 5-5 2-suited hand in
the 2 lowest unbid suits. The 1NT bidder will rebid 2NT to specify
this. If opponents opened with an alerted minor (short suit) then that
suit is one of the two suits. For example (1!) - 1NT - 2 - 2NT
shows BOTH minors.
