Sandwich Overcall - Unlike a cuebid, the Sandwich Overcall refers to a natural suit bid in the fourth seat over opponents' bid suits (opening with a minor suit, raised by a major suit). While the overcall is making a natural call, the opposition normally expects the overcall would be an artificial cuebid.  Thus, the natural Sandwich Overcall is alertable.

Examples:

(1D) - P - (1H) - 2H;   Sandwich Overcaller has great Hearts and a strong hand

(1C) - P - (1S) - 2C;    Sandwich Overcaller has great Clubs and a very good hand
