North passes, East passes (so flat - although with AKA, there will be players that open this), and South then can open 1. West would like to overcall but his are so bad and that QJ doesn't sound like it's pulling any weight anymore, so he probably passes. North bids 1NT (neither forcing nor even semi-forcing anymore since he's a passed hand), and East passes again. South rebids 2, and now West can pipe up with a double with less fear that partner will get carried away. North might well just pass that with the complete minimum and not real support for (but could "correct" to 2 to keep partner from needing to guess if East passed the double), and so it's up to East to pick a suit - between the and partner is showing, he prefers . South has already stuck his neck out a few times, so it could be that East just bought the contract at 2.
And this just barely works - declarer loses 2, 2, and probably a unless the defense lets him set up the for some pitches! (If the defense tries to get North a pitch, they just let declarer make a loser-on-loser play of pitching a on the 3rd round of , and then he only loses 2 and 2 when the A and a small crashes the remaining defenders' .)

East passes and South opens either 1, or preferably, 1NT. West overcalls his however high he feels like (which could absolutely be 4 at these colors), and so North either gets a chance to bid his or pass or double 4 (probably? He could also entertain 5, but that seems like it needs a lot of help/perfect cards from partner.)
So let's say West gets to play 4X - the defense can collect 5 tricks (1, 1, 2, and a ruff) if North leads the singleton , and that seems like an awfully natural lead from that hand!

South passes, West passes, and North opens 1NT. East overcalls with his however works conventionally for him - and that exact bid will likely change what South bids. If East makes a natural 2 bid, then South will have to decide how pushy to get with this hand. He probably likes the extra but not really the Qx. He could bid a natural and forcing 3 or a (-stopper denying in Lebensohl ) 3NT. If he isn't playing lebensohl, he could bid a natural and invitational 2NT. But it seems like North will accept an invite and has a stopper himself, so probably this ends up in North playing 3NT.
It's a pretty wacky turn of events that EW could make 4 here, but they can also defeat 3NT pretty convincingly. As long as East leads and then the defenders don't duck any of their Aces, the declarer should be held to just the 5 and 1 trick.

AiB Team - Robert Todd and Theri Andino Hand Analysis

West opens 1 and North doubles - it's not a great hand, but it's generally better to bid earlier and not worry about trying to show values later - so East passes. South jumps to 3 to show his values, and that puts West in an awkward position, but he probably chooses to bid 3 even though he knows it's dangerous. South might pass that out or might double since he's at the max for his bid, so then it will be a game of chicken to see if North blinks and bids 4 or passes it out.
In 3, West loses 1, 2, and 2 to just miss. But NS were making 3 (losing 2, 1, and 1) but not 4, so matchpoint scores here will be interesting!

AiB Team - Robert Todd and Theri Andino Hand Analysis

North passes, not seduced by the 4144 shape, but ready to support partner, and so East opens 1. South then overcalls 2 and West bids 2. North likes what's happening here for defense, so he passes, and now the final contract probably hinges on what East does next. If East just bids 3, West could pretty easily pass (or try 3NT.) If East bids 3, West is more likely to feel like he needs to take another bid, and 3NT seems like a little bit of a stretch but still possible.
It's possible to make this if the defense lets it through - if North leads a , the defense will then have to switch to so they can get their 3 tricks there to go with the 1 and 1 - but even that is delicate!

East passes and South opens 1NT. West could say something, but red with a shaky suit and an otherwise pretty flat hand, he should pass. North passes too, and so here we are.
It's not all that pretty, but declarer should be able to eke this one out - 2, 2, and 2 can be found with a few finesses, and then it's possible to pull out one more trick with a good guess (or a trick if the Ax can be diagnosed.)

South passes and West opens 1NT. North passes, East passes, and South is flat enough to let this go as well. (If North came in with /, then they might wind up declaring something in either of those suits.)
Against 1NT, North has little trouble finding the lead, and so the defense gets those 5 tricks right away and just has to not duck their Aces, holding declarer to those 5 tricks and whichever Major honor he goes after once that Ace is gone.

         50    0.00   6.00  4 S -1   A1-Fitzgerald III-Walker vs A14-Sill-Salasin

AiB Team - Robert Todd and Theri Andino Hand Analysis

West preempts 2, and North passes. East raises to 3 to try to muddy the waters further, and indeed, that makes South's bid a little harder. He can overcall 4 or double (planning to correct to ) but that might mislead partner. 4 looks like it ends the auction; double could draw 4 from partner, and then when South corrects that to 4, if North can read that as 2 places to play, he can correct to 4. But North should really prefer to bid 3, since that's generally a better place to play and more likely to be what partner's looking for, and then South can raise that to game.
4 is the winner! That contract only has to lose 1 and then fight through the losing , tap(s) in , and nasty break - leading to 2 more losers.
