More About Picture Jumps and Fast Arrival
In your example, opener's suit is not good enough for a jump rebid. He would need the jack of spades in addition to jump rebid. Example minimum suits for opener's jump rebid. AQJTxxx KQJTxxx AKJTxxx AKQTxxx On your pair of hands, here is my suggested auction: 1 ...

Yes, should say "last two examples." "Cold" means "unbeatable". It is a colloquial English expression used among bridge players only.
Steve Bruno's bidding problem: QJT7 AQ632 42 KQ
It depends on whether I anticipate being able to manage the auction after an overcall. If my hand is good enough that I can overcall and then double later to show the rest of my shape, then I overcall.
Steve Bruno's bidding problem: Jxxx AQ632 Qxx 2

More About Picture Jumps and Fast Arrival
The purpose of opener's jump rebid is to identify suits that can play at the slam level facing poor support like a small singleton. The idea is to encourage partner to cooperate on a hand like: x, AQx, AKxxx, xxx which has excellent prime cards but might otherwise worry ...

William Kochneff's bidding problem: xx AJ AKxxxx Axx
Another hand to illustrate the advantage of opener having a call to distinguish 5 hearts from 6.
Greg Humphreys's bidding problem: AQT Qxx AQTx Kxx
Doublers should have to state what they think dbl means. I think it is responsive and normally shows transferable values with less defense. A more typical double: xx, Kxxx, AQxx, Kxx
Barry Rigal's bidding problem: AQJ4 86 75 AK642
I wish I could bid 2.5 spades. That is what the hand is worth.
Arend Bayer's bidding problem: T2 T92 KJ62 KQJ2
In Arend's methods, double seems best to me. It gets you to the right partial whenever opener rebids 1NT or 2m. Given your mild extras, 2 will be playable in the 4-3 fit if he bids 2 instead. If partner has extras, you have enough for game ...
