DESCHAPELLES COUP

Defensive play involving the sacrifice of a high card in order to gain entry to partner’s hand.

For example:

When requiring an entry into partner’s hand, East makes the Deschapelles coup by leading the king. If dummy’s ace wins, the queen becomes an entry; if declarer allows the king to hold, East leads another card to the now bare ace, establishing the queen as an entry.
