Surely a player of your bridge skills is familiar with most or all of the following tips you are about to read. But is your partner?  

Fact 48 (Playing Tip)

At a suit contract holding A-x-x facing x-x-x and the suit is led, it is usually right to win the second round of the suit.

If one of the opponents has a doubleton, you cut the communications between the two hands. It is also right to duck when dummy has x-x and you have A-x-x-(x). Ducking allows you to keep control of the suit. Do the same when dummy has A-x-x-(x) and you have x-x. Take the second trick with the ace. This assumes you have no place to put these losers.

 After a 1overcall, a major ­suit response can be made with only 4. But, after a 1overcall, a 1♠ response guarantees at least 5. Two ­level responses guarantee at least 5.

Conclusion: If they overcall anything other than 1, then responder's bid of a major guarantees 5 or more. If they overcall 1, then responder is allowed to bid 1or 1♠ with only 4.

Warning: This needs to be studied, studied again and memorized. It isn't complicated, but causes complication if it isn't digested properly.
