Look at the 3 hands above. Your right hand opponent who is the dealer has just bid a weak 2S
What do you bid with each hand. I would bid
(Top) 3 hearts. You have plenty of points and a good 5 card heart suit. I believe if you have a 5 card suit to bid and an opening hand you should overcall with it.
(Middle) 2NT. I have an agreement with my regular partner that if I have at least one good stopper in the weak suit called, a flat hand and a minimum of 14+ HCP then this is the bid.
(Bottom) Double. I have no stopper in spades so our agreement with an opening hand and no 5 card suit is to double.
You should have an understanding with your partner about how you deal with weak twos and pre-emptive bids.
