In a round of 16 match in the Senior World Championships, you must decide if or how to compete with a minimal hand.
None vul, South deals. As East, you hold:
1!D: 11-15, 2+ diamonds. If balanced, 13-15.
Your 1-level bids have the following meanings:
RDBL: 4+ hearts
1!H: 4+ spades. Partner will bid 1!S with 3 spades, 2!S with 4 spades.
1!S: No major, like a normal 1NT call
