THREAT CARD (MENACE)

A card that, whilst not yet a winner, may become a winner if the opponents weaken their holding in the suit by discarding from it.

The main use of the term is in connection with squeezes. For example, if North holds A-K-Q-J-4 and East 10-8-6-5-3, the 4 is a threat card (menace). East cannot afford to discard a heart for fear of establishing the 4 as a winner.
