Before we show you the whole deal, consider your bid with the North hand:


                                 ♠ T854                        None Vulnerable

                                 ♥ ---                             West   North  East    South             

                                 ♦ KQJT52                                          2       2

                                 ♣ AKQ                        4       ??


So far this has happened:

-          East bid a Weak Two, showing long Hearts and less than opening values

-          South overcalled 2, showing an opening bid (or something very close)

-          West furthered the preempt by jumping to 4

What is your bid?
