Pinochle has many variations. It is hard to find a strategy manual that addresses the way you play the game. This manual is for you if you play using the following rules: *You play with a single deck. *You play with 4 players in two partnerships. *Your point counters are Ace, King, and 10, and each is worth 1 point (or 10). *Your minimum opening bid is 25 (or 250). *The auction winner (declarer) chooses the trump suit. *Four cards are passed: declarer's partner passes 4 to declarer who looks at the cards before passing 4 back. Then meld is put down. *Declarer leads to the first trick. As a convenience, this variation is named "David's variation." This manual introduces a bidding system that shows you the best bidding range for your hand. You can use the bidding system even if your partner doesn't. This manual also introduces simple bidding conventions that allow partners to describe their hand based on how they bid. The conventions are optional, but can be easily taught. This manual identifies the strategic turning points that occur throughout the game. It provides suggestions on how to take advantage of the opportunities available to you at each point. Both new and experienced players will find many ideas to sharpen their play.
