Your Bridge Queries Answered – Problem 190

Hi Ron,

I opened 1 and LHO opponent overcalled 1NT.  My partner bid 3 with the following hand

  • spade A 7 2
  • heart 9 7 5 4
  • diamond 2
  • club A J 9 7 3

We hadn’t discussed this bid and partner said it was a splinter.   I thought if might be a long diamond suit. Is it right to use a splinter bid after a 1NT overcall.  If not what would be the correct bid here.
 
Cheers . . .
