Whoever has the highest score after 30 minutes or the first team to reach 300 points will be the winning team (whichever occurs first). If a hand is in progress at "stop" time, it will be played out and the results added to the score to determine a winner.

  • The first hand bids itself in the tournament. Each team must bid for all subsequent hands. Players must bid in order, starting with the player directly to the left of the dealer.
  • “A card laid is a card played!” and cannot be picked up.
  • No “table talk” or giving hints to a partner will be allowed.
