Raise structure after our 1 overcall


I am interested in expert "spade raise" style(s) in auctions of the form (1m) 1 (DBL*) ?

Of particular interest is where the stronger raises, e.g. limit raises or better, go through, e.g.

  • 2 opener's minor
  • 2
  • 2NT
  • other

and implicit in considering this, I suppose, is which of the opponents suits, i.e. the minor** or hearts, are regarded as having been "bid" at this point in this auction.

* "Negative", usually 4 (occasionally more) hearts

** I suppose of further relevance here is the minimum length of the minor here - assume two for clubs and four for diamonds, if needed
