I’ll get my eyesight tested. It shouldn’t be too hard to get partner in for one round of trumps.

Easy to score down six. Heart, heart, heart, heart, three black winners. Now a third club and East is forced to ruff. North wins the next trump and leads a fourth club; south overruffs and gets off lead with his spade.

The successful defence to extract 2800 is hardly rocket science.

Well, it strictly can't be a 14-count.

The third line also permits a recovery position if clubs are 5-2 onside with the DK.

Andy, with five good spades and some clubs he might have bid spades, but with five good clubs and some spades he had no alternative to double.

This hand has rather more assured defence, and a very attractive vulnerability for defenidng.

Well, not a heart or a diamond. CA looks percentage.

South definitely shouldn't have bid 3H over the double. Passing for a quick 500 looks pretty good.

I would have thought the expected bad trump break would outweigh any advantages from well-placed diamond honours.

I’m not kidding myself that 4NT is anything but Blackwood. Maybe 4H is OK.

No alternative to double if I can’t count on any particular length opposite.

Pass is even worse if you can’t bid your clubs later when partner opens 1M.

7NT is fair, making on a spade break or the DQ. Any other grand is much worse.

3D. No rush. We could belong in any of four strains.

I’m not sure how I’d have 11 points after passing non-vul, let alone 12.

I’d bid 2S or 2NT with the big one-suited hand. (Three-suiters double. Two-suiters bid the other suit.) This also means that you don’t need to perpetrate inept creepy-crawly bidding that lets the opponents describe their hands before making a final decision.

Ignoring the obvious complaints about the conditions, I think 7C is indicated, In diamonds, this hand might be cut off.
