If that is the case, then why is this being posted for our comments?

One of my favorites from years ago was “double it”. You were gong DOWN.

I agree. But see Scott's post above. Whatever you do may be wrong.

Says no alert “in the auction ”. But I think there is a delayed alert after the auction.

And what they say tomorrow may not be the same as today. I can't keep up with the ever changing procedures.

Totally agree. Especially again not pairs I would not have expect to know that.

Same document just below,

◦ 1♣, 1♦, or 1♥-P-1NT, if the 1NT bidder could or could not have four cards in one or both majors, again no Alert.

If you are talking about ACBLand, there is a definitive answer. From Alert Procedures document
Example: 1♥-P-1♠
If 1♠ promises a five-card suit (when playing an opening 2♦ bid as five hearts and four
spades), no Alert is required.

The next time, and first time, Michael Rosenberg asks me to play in the Vanderbilt, I will be sure to discuss the sequence with him. Meanwhile, in the real world, I will play it as penalty.

Yes. You are right of course. I took declarer's word for how he play went without playing it out myself. I emailed West who is a reasonable club player. She said declarer ruff in hand per force.
She overruffed with the Ace. Declarer pitched a from dummy. On the return, declarer erred and ruffed low “since they were all equal”. Unfortunately I was not at the table. Another lesson, “ruff high so you can under-ruff in hand”

Hope this makes sense.

I want to thank everyone for their comments. If anyone else wants to comment, fine. I could have phrased the problem better. I should have said it was matchpoints at the beginning. I should have never said that makng four would be a bad score, I should asked what goal you aim for. I doubt you can make 5 on the except on a double dummy line.

The pairs that got good scores received a lead. The player actually cashed all their side suit winners without touching trumps. The Q fell doubleton. Declarer lead 10, RHO ruffed, led a . Trumps in dummy forced the Ace as RHO held Q102. Making four.
