OPEN YOUR EYES, DON’T FALL ASLEEP!

TEAMS.
DEALER SOUTH, E/W VUL.

Your East hand is not very strong:

♠ QJ97
 42
 6543
♣ 765

South, your left hand opponent, is the dealer and opens 1. West, your partner, overcalls 1♠ and North bids 3, indicating, just like when there is no overcall, four-card support in Hearts as well as 11-12DH (perhaps a little less if this is warranted by his distribution).

What will you do?
Let’s bet that you would have liked to participate in this competitive auction, but the weakness of your hand and the unfavorable vulnerability were dissuasive enough… This was the (short) complete auction:
