Overcalling at the 2 Level  

The criteria for two-level overcalls are significantly more. Points are not crucial but because It is far more difficult for everyone to bid at this level you need a better (ie. longer and stronger) suit since you must be concerned about getting left in your bid, possibly even doubled especially if you are vulnerable.

Guidelines for Overcalling at the Two Level

Suit Length Overcall at the Two Level
5 cards Avoid weak five-card suits. If you overcall with a 5 card suit at this level your suit should be headed by at least three of the honors
6 cards Your suit may be quite weak when not vulnerable. Unless your hand is very strong, have at least two honors especially when vulnerable
