Ekren a weak 2 opening from the cold country of north Europe
i think the original have 5-10 point and the bid was 2
4+and 4+ the SPREAD version is even more weak
4+ and 4+ 0-7(8) HCP 8 is for balanced hand
with more point you open 1
bad example

south open with 2
west pass
north don't like and corect to 2
East pass
east lead A of and K of and give his partner a ruff
West ruff and cash the Ace of
2 +1 made

In the game of bridge, Ekren refers to a preemptive opening of 2♦ defined as 4-4, 4-5, 5-4 or 5-5 in the majors and 3-10 high card points. This conventional preempt was designed by Bj°rn Olav Ekren from Norway and is an example of the modern style of highly aggressive preemptive bidding.

this is an example of ekren
2 4+ and 4+ 0-7(8) HCP
2NT minors 4+and 4+ 13+ HCP
(A DOUBLE will show balanced with 3+ 16+ {penality optional})
North pass
east bid 3 preference

Ekren didn't like using 2!H to show the majors. I doubt that he'd like seeing this 2!H bid described as Ekrens.

My impression is that this (broad) class of Preempts is typically described as "assumed fit"

Yep - 2 is Ekren; 2 is 'Ekren' style and supposedly harder to play against
