Bathe Coup - A tactic of playing a low card from holdings
including Ace and Jack when the Left Hand Opponent lead from
King, Queen and
other cards in a given suit. Thus, if the Left Hand Opponent leads a second card,
declarer will take 2 subsequent tricks assuming Right Hand Opponent does not
ruff the suit.
West leads the
SK, South falsecarding the
S9 to encourage West to
continue playing Spades (providing the appearance East's
S7 is inviting continuance).
However, if West continues with the
SQ, South will win the SA,
SJ, 2 Diamonds, and 5
Clubs. If West switches to another suit, South is limited to 1 Spade
winner, setting the contract.
