Week 0180 : 4th December 2023



1. A deal when all four players pass – the term comes from rubber bridge where players would literally throw in their cards for a redeal.

2. To give a player the lead deliberately, with the expectation of a favourable return.

Here is an example:

South plays in 6. West leads the K. Declarer wins this, draws trumps, cashes three rounds of spades and leads the J. This throws West in. West has the lead but does not want it: a club goes into the tenace while any pointed suit card would give a ruff and discard.
