#2 North South Vulnerable

North   East   South   West
1♠          Pass     2         Pass
2          Pass     ?
♠ 3
A J 10
K J 5 4 3 2
♣ Q 10 9
North’s rebid of 2s shows five spades and at least four hearts.  South could rebid 2NT or 3 but the one bid South cannot make is 3.  In order to raise a secondary suit directly, a four-card suit is required. Rebidding 2NT would tend to show a balanced hand (two spades) so 3 would be the choice bid on this hand.

If North rebids 3s,
1♠   2
2  3
3   ?

Then South has a simple raise to 4.
