There are three widely accepted partnership agreements for jump overcalls, 'STRONG' which was the norm in the 1950's but has now all but disappeared, INTERMEDIATE, which has been the norm for beginners and improvers until the early 21st Century, and WEAK, which is played almost universally at tournament level and is fast growing in popularity alongside Weak 2 opening bids.   Have you discussed with your partner which version you play?
