As a guide to quick bidding: An ace and, if you are feeling lucky, any cards that you have in a run from an ace are generally enough to bid one for each. (eg. if you have A, K, and Q) You are guarenteed to win with the Ace of Spades and any card in a run that connects to it.


Not necessarily. Generally, if you have many (more than 3 or 4) cards of a non-trump suit, you have to devalue your high cards -- odds are, if you try to play them all out, someone is going to trump you. Inversely, if you have many trumps, you can inflate the value of lower cards, especially if you have one or two short-suits that you know you can cut early.
