ESCAPE MECHANISM

A bidding method used to locate the safest fit after the opponents have doubled for penalties.

Often applied after the double of a weak or mini no-trump opening. For instance, some play that after 1NT-double, responder redoubles with a single suited hand (and shows the suit after opener’s forced 2♣) while an immediate bid after the double would show the lower of two suits. An SOS redouble is another example.
