Hi Scott,

This is what happens if you choose to play the Collante convention :
 N          E       S
1        1      X    = 4 cards in (exactly)
1        1      1 = 5 cards in (or 6...)

1/     1      X    = 4 cards in (exactly)
1/     1      1 = 5 cards in (or 6...)

***********
Without Collante, doubling the 1 overcall is negative, but doesn't indicate specifically 4 cards in , and doubling the 1 overcall is negative, but doesn't indicate 4 cards in .

Also, without Collante, if South bids 1 after the 1 overcall, he can have 4 cards only in , and if South bids 1 after the 1 overcall, he can have 4 cards only in

Collante convention is great when, for example, West raises his partner's overcall to a high level, then Nord can raise his partner's suit with 3 trumps only, being sure South has 5 trumps in his hand, and not 4.

Hope this helps
