The Auction:
West   North   East   South
            1NT   2NT1   3♠2
pass      4♠     pass    pass
dbl       all pass   

1 - Both minors
2 - Competitive hand with spades; not invitational

Partner opens a 15-17 1NT, over which East bids the "Unusual 2NT" to show both minors. You play a treatment called "Unusual over Unusual" over this, where 3♣ would show a good hand with hearts, 3 would show a good hand with spades, so that 3 and 3♠ would be competitive. So you have an easy 3♠ bid available. Partner reevaluates his hand, and raises you to 4. West doubles the final contract, which ends the auction.

The opening lead is ♣Q. How do you play the hand? (If you ruff a club at any stage, East will play the King and West the Jack)
