2 SPADES—5 PTS.
To announce the club fit by a jump raise would interfere with the orderly investigation for bigger things and suggest greater high-card strength in clubs.
We are not partial to partners who over-call in the opponent's suit, especially when vulnerable. However, you must presume he knows what he is doing. Do not rescue even if partner gets doubled.
4 HEARTS—5 PTS.
The prospect of raising partner at the four level on three trumps is not appealing, but a bid of four clubs is likely to be passed, and we would not advise a leap to five clubs.
2 DIAMONDS—5 PTS.
