Another part of my UI series; since the last hand I presented involved UI for both pairs, it has been suggested that the lead problem with UI restriction might also be of interest.

The 1NT opening is 15-17, 3 is agreed as preemptive. If it matters, double (instead of 3NT) by LHO would have been negative. Both North and East broke tempo before making their respective calls.

I did not conduct a poll for the opening lead but would assume that - absent any UI from partner - the K is the only LA. Which opening leads would you disallow because you think they are demonstrably suggested over the K?
