    • Ties will be broken by the team with the least amount of game points the opposing teams scored against them over the course of the round-robin.
    • A tie of game points will be determined by a coin flip

Prize Distribution

  2. NO Stick the Dealer
    • If no trump is selected in the second round of bidding, the cards will be reshuffled and the deal will move to the next player
  3. Second Round Bidding Rules
    • In the second round of bidding, a player may not call trump of the suit of the card that was just turned down
    • In the second round of bidding, a player may not call trump for a suit that is not currently in their hand
      • Note: The “left” of the proposed Trump suit DOES count as a suit of the proposed trump suit
