North can get away with a light opening here since he has an easy rebid over anything partner does. East overcalls 1NT with a balanced 16 count and clubs well-stopped. South should pass with no values to speak of and West needs a way to make an invitation in the the majors. I've shown one sequence, but you need to discuss with partner the particular meaning of certain sequences including 1NT-2-2-2. With West making some sort of invitational bid, East should bid 3NT.

South has a difficult opening lead problem on any auction where West shows hearts. That said, it's hard to see declarer taking more than 8 tricks. As declarer, you start by counting tricks: one spade, three diamonds, and two clubs. The options for developing tricks are clubs and hearts. It looks slightly better to try hearts than clubs, although depending on the lead, declarer might have time to try both. Unfriendly lies in both suits will likely doom the contract. That said, if you gave me the description of the combined hands: 24 high card points, a six-card suit in one hand and a five-card suit in the other; I'd be perfectly content to be in a game. You can't make them all.

Pass2Pass2
Pass3NTAll pass 

It's East's turn to open without 12 points. This time, East has shape and vulnerability in his favor. It's ok for South to have 18 points for the notrump overcall, particularly vulnerable. West might think about raising, just to be a pest, but is shown passing here. North uses Stayman and East doesn't have enough to compete to 3. Double is a possibility from East, but it could also show a big hand, rather than a lead-direct here and if in doubt, it's best not to put partner in a position to go wrong. After South's negative response, North shouldn't just invite, but bid 3NT on his own. Sure it's only a 9-count, but the nice diamond suit is worth at least an extra point in evaluating the hand.

West should lead a spade and declarer has plenty of time to set up the diamonds and then the club trick. This is probably an unfortunate result for the East-West pair who, by virtue of sitting down, will get a below average score for -660. In an event like the Blue Ribbon Pairs, this score would be repeated at every table, but it's rare to do well defending a making game at the club level. Knowing that a bad result (like -660) is going to be repeated at other tables is something experts refer to as having "field protection".

Pass3NTAll pass 

South opens 1, and West has a good shape for action, but no points and should pass. North responds 1, and East might think about doubling for the other two suits, but should pass at these colors. South rebids 2 and North should invite to game by bidding 2NT. South's hand is worth an acceptance, but should clarify his shape by bidding 3. North will now know that partner is short in spades. North isn't super concerned about that problem though, with so much strength in spades.

Against 3NT, East has to find a lead in an auction where every suit has been bid naturally. It's generally better to lead through dummy rather than try to lead a suit where declarer has length. That limits it to clubs, diamonds, or hearts. I think I would probably lead a heart and hope it worked, though it's really an impossible lead problem. The heart layout is interesting as the suit can be picked up for no losers. If a heart is the opening, it allows declarer an entry to the North hand and declarer can try a diamond finesse while there. Without that or a spade lead, declarer has to guess which finesse to abandon.

3Pass4All pass

West's preempt is aggressive lacking a quality suit, but equal vulnerability is a safer time for that kind of action than when unfavorable (at equal vulnerability, down two doubled might not be the end of the world if the opponents can make a game). If you're not going for 1100 from time to time, you're probably not preempting enough. When I played with Marty Bergen, he considered it distasteful to play any 24 boards and not go for at least 500. East has a great hand, but not enough value or room to explore for slam (particularly if playing with Marty Bergen). East also shouldn't bother to explore for other strains: a nine card spade fit is enough. Whether West opens 3 as he does here, or 2 for those with a weaker constitution, East should place the contract in 4.

North, without a lot to go on, probably leads the Q. On auctions where the preempter is declaring, you should make aggressive leads. This is the only auction type where I might even lead an unsupported ace, just to get a look at dummy. The East hand could have bid 4 with a number of hand types: spade support; a good, balanced hand; a strong, shapely hand. Since your ace isn't likely to capture an honor from the preempter, it doesn't usually cost. On this hand, though, you don't have an ace to lead, so you might as well lead your honors. Declarer needs to plan carefully. He only has two diamond losers and two trump losers, but the lead presents difficulty. He can't draw trump without solidifying his losers, so he needs to deal with diamonds first. The best line: declarer ruffs a diamond, plays the A and ruffs a club, and then ruffs his last diamond. A third club ruffed back and declarer leads a high trump (looking out for the 9). Now comes a bit of a guess as declarer could play a heart or a club to try to get back to draw trump. A heart is safer, since 5-3 clubs would mean that declarer could lose an extra trump trick. The friendly 2-2 spade split means that declarer will take 11 tricks.

 3? 

North opens 3. Sometimes players overthink this type of holding. They say "nine high card points and then add three points for length and that's plenty to open 1". Preempts weren't designed for double-counting. If you have 6-10 hcp and a 6 or 7-card suit, that's a preempt. Don't add the points to your length. Now, there are some hands that have too much for a preempt: 4 AJ109843 AJ10 82 for example has too many tricks and intermediate cards to preempt in first or second seat. After a 3 opening bid, East has lots of bad choices. Pass, 3 and double are all possible. If East bids 3 the pair might get all the way to 4. Should South double that contract? I think so. Vulnerable preempts shouldn't be based on nothing, so he can count on partner for a trick, plus the 3-ish tricks he expects in clubs and spades.

The play in spades is complicated. If South leads the Q, declarer can win try a diamond or club. It's not clear which is better, but it does seem better not to test spades right away as the potential tap coming in hearts is looming, plus the spades are likely poorly placed if South doubled. That's one reason that playing on diamonds might seem attractive. The problem with playing clubs immediately is that even if declarer manages to set up the suit, he doesn't have any more entries to the West hand. The play is more straightforward (and worse for declarer) if the East-West pair stumble into 3NT or 3NTx (if East makes a takeout double of 3). A heart lead, plus the diamond entry means that North-South can take 6 hearts and three aces for down five. The best East-West can do (besides the unlikely feat of stopping in 3) is defending 3. The defenders will need to draw dummy's trump to hold declarer to 9 tricks (the same nine tricks the North-South pair take defending 3NT).
