It means 'delicate manipulation' . In bridge it means leading a lower card from dummy when the player between you and dummy has a high card, but you hold an even higher one. If the opponent plays his high card you take the trick from your hand, but if he plays a lower card than dummy, you also play lower and let dummy's card take the trick.
