Term used to describe a finesse you can take as declarer without losing the trick should it fail.

For example, in the first layout below, when West leads low, you can finesse dummy’s jack. Should East produce the queen, you can capture it with the ace.

In the second layout, assuming this is a side suit, you can finesse the queen when West leads it, knowing that you can ruff if East produces the king.
