Don't worry to much, If players ask directly they tend to always do.. it doesn't helpt their partner.

after 1NT-2-p with 2-3 I would bid 2, if partner has equal length he will bid 2, otherwise we will land in our 5-2 fit instead of our 4-3 fit. What is the reason you bid 2 Kit?

Over 1NT-2-dbl I thought it was standard to play:
Pas=
RDBL=bid your best suit
2X=Nat..

*Used to resevers 4 and 4 here. so 4 would be a good hand with , so 4 is CoG..

Bidding these hands to slam isn't that clearcut.
The EW hands are very balanced for the 3 bid..

It is quite comon to play 2-4m as m+ in the Netherlands. and to pass with 5-5m… you might defend 2 with 5-5 blacks but I have never seen that happen

If Declarer has A he probably has 7tricks 2 and 1 trick.
this made the defense of Multon very good, Players think in tricks in defense not in opening 1 or 4 with or without A.
Also Multon probably knew that Zimmermann didn't hold the KQ, he would lead that over the J10 I believe.

I saw this board whilst you played it, I think the argument of not being sure how you defend against a 1N opening doesn't really count. As you said you (should) act directly when you act.. I think you could have bid 2N and explained is as minors…

Kit what would 3S over rdbl be?

You are surely not single or void in spades, you would have acted last round….
