And the bidding goes:
Do you agree with my bidding so far? What's your bid?
From my point of view, 5C is making. Is 5S a worthwhile sacrifice?
The best case scenario is that partner has Kxx of spades and shortness in hearts. In that case, I go down 1. The worst case is that partner has KQx of spades and nothing else. I then go down 3. I rolled the dice and bid 5S, got doubled and went down ... five! Turns out that the real worst case scenario is that partner raised with 10xx xxx Qxxxx Qx.
Needless to say, we lost that match. But only by 7 imps. Without my ill-advised sacrifice, we would have won.
We lost the next match too and found ourselves in a round-robin with two other two-loss teams. "Why are they here?," sputtered our opponent to the director who patiently explained that the reason he had play us in the round robin was because we had lost our first two matches. "I don't want to be here either," I mollified him, "I would rather be playing there."
Our opponent had just about settled down when this hand came up (I was West):
He wasn't happy about that either. Playing in the last round of a Swiss teams having lost all your matches, you should not be subjected to a squeeze.
We ended up blitzing the round robin and ended up fifth. Not bad, but I had hoped to do better.
