Misplay this Hand with Me

Based on his bestselling trilogy of books, Misplay These Hands with Me, Misdefend These Hands with Me and Misbid These Hands with Me, Mark Horton shows you how to avoid misplaying, misdefending and misbidding hands.

In the semifinal of an online event, I pick up this modest collection:

Dealer West. All Vul.

♠ 7652
6
 KQ106
♣ J865

When West passes my partner opens 1 which does not promise more than three cards and East overcalls 1. I
try a negative double and when West raises to 2 my partner bids 3♣ which suggest he has at least nine cards in the minors. When East keeps going with 3, I raise to 4 and that concludes this competitive auction:
