With ♠️Q ♥️KT8 ♦️AJ82 ♣️KJ863, will you overcall if Right Hand Opponent opens a Standard American 1♣️?  Your only option, under current system policy, if you were to avoid a brown sticker convention, is to overcall 1♦️

If you pass and the bidding goes P-1♣️-P-1♠️-P-2♠️, what will you do in second round? Let opponents play 2♠️ uncontested, or will you risk a double at two level?

With a more targeted defensive method against Standard American 1♣️ you could get rid of this dilemma. Check this video for two such methods.
