Opening 7NT
A non forcing bid of 7NT forced him out of club
Plan the play.
You can squeeze East out of forth (or 5th or 6th). 2 --> Q (holds) Cross to table, run J, now you can win if E has last honor left. I can leave precise math to you, but it seems, that, if Q holds, we have at least ...

A suicidal transfer break
South forgot to bid 2 on his first opportunity. With this NT range it is advisable to show values when braking transfer.
Opponment writes 100 for his own score.
Yeah, i wrote it wrong :) The case in question is, he knows where is an Ace, but don't know distribution.

1) Never claim when you have to concede a trick. 2) Never claim Although i see merit in never claiming (it will occasionally earn you a trick(<1%) and you will see all hands (if you count them)) , i usually take 1st path.
Literal Double Dummy
Had something similar once (9 cards were exposed if i remember correctly) TD had a headache over what to rule. Although TD ruling was to continue to play, it was overulled (by himself few hours later) that board was damaged beyond repair and some split scores were awarded.
What is 2NT here?
Ok ,maybe too strong, swap to K108x?
