Actually, with West's bid of 2C showing 5 and East holding only 4, the Law of Total Tricks (LOTT) would limit East to 3C. Over 4H, nothing doing.I don't understand. I see three potential outcomes consistent with the minimum holdings. If four hearts makes, five clubs is a good sacrifice. If four hearts is down two, five clubs may/should make. What if four hearts is down one? Then four hearts was a bad bid, but five clubs down should still beat any heart partial.So East should bid five clubs not knowing whether it is a sacrifice or making, just like North bid 4 Hearts not knowing whether it would make or not.I think that may be why your trick worked. West has now seen dummy, and has to figure out why East did not bit 5 Clubs.
