SUCKERS DOUBLE

A double of a freely bid game or slam contract by a player who is relying solely on defensive high-card strength. Against good opponents, such doubles can mean that declarer makes an ‘unmakeable’ contract by placing the doubler with all the missing strength.

It is probable that the declaring side has distributional values to compensate for missing high-card values.
