~2/1: What Does 1D-2S Mean?

Three options:

1. A game forcing bid showing 6+ spades (or a strong 5).

2. A weak jump shift showing 6+ spades and too few HCP to have bid 1S.

3. A slam invitation showing specific type hands.

The modern style is that all jump shifts by responder in competition are weak. Some players play the bid weak at all times.

Your partnership should pick a meaning for the jump shift and define the associated point count. Your jump shift may be alertable depending on the meaning you select for the bid.
