1-4 (void, optional voidwood)
4(0/3 ignoring A, and I still have an opening bid in the light of your club splinter)-7

1D 1H
2D 5C

This should lead to 7D very quickly.

Opening 1N is masterminding.

I don't play exclusion, but:
1* (unbalanced)-2* (inverted minor);
2* (values)-2* (values);
3 (no sensible bid, NF)-3* (control/waiting for club values);
4 (denies spade values, half club stopper or club shortness)-4NT (RKC 1430);
5 (3/0)-7

Without exclusion blackwood the trick to this hand is to become captain of the auction as West. So instead of splintering to show your hand, you should keep making asking bids.

1 - 1 - 2 - 4 splinter agreeing - 4 first round control - 5nt bid slam with two of AKQ - 7

added: I do not see 5NT to be modern version 'pick a slam' as suit is already agreed, so 5NT is just to find out if partner has A or K or both.

Deal rotated to make South dealer.
MIkeH's auction is simple and effective.
Although I confess I might open 1N

Ok, it's easy now I see all hands and approaches.
My auction would start off like David's, but we do play exclusion so I hope our auction would be;

1 2 (gf )
2 5 exclusion keycard 0-1-2-3
5NT. 7

Can you get to 7 when one of the opponents throws in a club pre-empt and the other one raises, which is likely given they have 11 including all three top honors between them?

Playing Exclusion (as we do) easily yes.
