play (one's) hunch

(redirected from play her hunch)

play (one's) hunch

To make a decision based on one's instinct, intuition, or an educated guess. The detective played his hunch and went to investigate the warehouse by the docks. Sure enough, that's where he found the stolen goods. There's no penalty for guessing, so if you're not positive which answer is correct, just play your hunch and don't second-guess yourself too much.
