Expose gamble by one forecasting fall of dictator? (3,4)
I believe the answer is:
'expose gamble by one forecasting fall of dictator?' is the definition.
I can't tell whether this definition defines the answer.
'expose gamble by' is the wordplay.
'expose' becomes 'bare' (baring is a kind of exposing).
'gamble' becomes 'lay' (I've seen this before).
'by' means one lot of letters go next to another.
'bare' after 'lay' is 'LAY BARE'.
Can you help me to learn more?
(Other definitions for lay bare that I've seen before include "Show clearly, disclose" , "Expose" .)
