BATH COUP

A hold-up after a king (from K-Q) lead towards an A-J combination that forces the leader to switch or concede a trick to both the ace and jack. For example: you are South in 4 and West leads the ♠K. You should use the Bath Coup and duck the first trick. West cannot continue spades safely. Now, when East gets in with the K, you will be able to win the second spade and throw the ♠J on a diamond.
