SAFETY PLAY

A way of handling a suit combination to give the greatest chance of making the required number of tricks in the suit at the expense of abandoning the possibility of gaining extra tricks.

If you need four tricks from the above holding, the safety play is to lead low to the jack, catering for a 4-0 break on either side. If West is void, you will be able to take marked finesses against East on the second and third rounds of the suit.
