The contract is 4 Hearts. Declarer is South. The lead by West is: King of Diamonds. The declarer plays low from the dummy and East overtakes with the Ace of Diamonds, knowing that his partner has the Queen of Diamonds. East plays his second Diamond on the third trick, and West wins. South, the declarer, knows that West will produce a Diamond on the third trick for East to trump. Since the dummy contains only small trump cards, East will be able to overtrump. South also has a losing Club trick. South therefore throws a losing Club trick from the dummy on the third trick. South can later ruff the losing Club trick in his hand in the dummy. This variation is known as Allowing a Safe Ruff to Produce a Trick.

Hope you enjoyed the lesson on doubles & redoubles

Doubles & Redoubles should be used all the time in competative bridge.....If every contract that you double goes off THEN you are not doubling enough - what that means is that some will make - thats bridge and thats life.....Its all about stats in the end....
