Alert question
The relevance is that your description of 2 seems wrong. If 2 is a limit raise, then it should be something like 9-11. In which case 2 is a normal single raise. If your treatments are different, then an alert is needed as they are unusual and ...
Alert question
Most people play Drury as a limit raise, so a simple raise would be just that - a simple single raise just like you would do if you were not a passed hand. Given that, I would think that since it guarantees 4+ trump support, an alert is in order. BTW ...
Finesse or not?
If hearts are good for five tricks, the queen of clubs is irrelevant
Finesse or not?
The bidding is correct. My partner judged that hearts was better. I wasn't about to overrule as he knew my hand and I didn't know his. 20-20 hindsight is easy.

Should I have called the TD?
Do you have the hands right? It looks like a few honors are missing from the diagram.
Great Bols Of Fire
Around 45 years ago, Truscott reported a hand where declarer took 13 tricks, off all four aces. (In trumps.) The play went something like: west led a heart, east played the heart ace and immediately banged down the ace of diamonds. Or so he thought. He got them backwards. When ...
First I'd look to see whether Cesar Romero, Jack Nicholson, or John Scarne were in the vicinity.......
