  • What was the vulnerability? Who was dealer? Was either partnership playing a strong club system? The answer to all of these questions will weigh in on the fine details of the answer. May 2, 2013 at 1:20

A jump overcall is pre-emptive and generally shows the same values as a pre-emptive opening bid.

So in this case 3S could show as little as 6 HCP with 7 spades.

  • the first sentence of your answer is what i was missing. Thanks
