WHICH BIDDING SYSTEM?
In most parts of the world, notably the US and many European countries, the bidding system is built around Five Card Majors.
There are various approaches to playing Five Card Majors, with one of the most popular being SAYC (Standard American Yellow Card) which is also the 'default' bidding system for Internet bridge. The bidding system used at No Fear Bridge is closely based on SAYC.

Does A 2 Level Response Promise A 5 Card Suit After An Overcall?
Sometimes an opponent's overcall means that the responder can only show his major suit by bidding above the 2 level in opener's suit. In these situations, the responder promises a 5 card suit.
Responder has the 11 points required to bid 2 in this situation, so he should take the opportunity to show his 5 card suit.
Without a 5 card major responder should start with a negative double, which doesn't promise both majors in this situation. If opener bids 2, rebid 2NT.
When responder bids a minor suit at the 2 level, it may be based upon a 4 card suit:
This time a double would promise 4 hearts, so responder has to bid 2.
