Lunch Time Tichuers 04/09/2007

The cards were certainly one-sided today. And yet, our team did not call Tichu often enough. The trick is to figure out when your partner has good cards instead of the other team. You only get one piece of information. And that is the card which your partner passed to you. If it is the Dragon, the Phoenix, or an Ace, it is a clear sign. Even very low cards like twos through fives can be clear signs. The question is how do you interpret when you are passed a middle card? In this game, it was: “I hope to make a strong Tichu hand so I am keeping my honors.”
