Goodmorning
Will you please advice me if in the following sequence the bicolor in economic or expensive

S 1
E 2

S 2
Is there a general rule to determine if the bicoor is economic when N°2 overbid

Thank you

I have no idea what you mean, those are not bridge terms in English, but in general terms E's 2 does not in any way disrupt your 1-2 auction, so 2 means whatever it would have meant without the overcall.

2 to most people would be a game try of some description, the type depending on your agreement but it's basically a "bid 4 with a good 2 bid using your holding in spades as a guide as to what's a good one".

Maybe you can have a look at this page to avoid translation issues and’so others can understand or answer better.

In’all cases the above auction shows extras from opener.

If the bidding is 1Club - (1Spade overcall) - 2Diamonds from partner, if you bid 2❤️ it is not even a 2-suiter you could even have
