A game. The game is 7 points. For each trick in excess of six, 1 point is awarded. The price of a game is determined by subtracting the losers from seven.
Shuffle. Cards must be shuffled before each deal. In all cases, the dealer shuffles the cards last.
Withdrawal. To remove cards, the dealer must offer the deck to the opponent on the right, the opponent must take and put part of the top deck cards in the direction of the dealer. Each pack must contain at least four cards. The dealer must reconnect the parts into one deck, putting the untouched part on the removed one. If one of the cards is shown when removing or connecting the individual parts, the dealer must again shuffle the deck, after which it is removed again.
The dealer loses the right to hand over if he shuffles the deck after the corresponding removal.
Distribution of cards. After removing and connecting the deck, the dealer must deal cards, and each player is dealt one card at a time, starting from the player sitting to the left of the dealer. After the end of the distribution, as well as in case of loss of the right to distribution, the queue moves to the next player to the left of the dealer, etc.
Re-issue of cards is made by the same dealer:
a) if any card is shown, except the last one,
b) if during the time of the hand or the draw it turns out that the deck has a flaw or is incorrectly composed. In this case, the previous result obtained in the game by this deck remains valid.
If one of the cards is shown at the time of handing over, the innocent party may demand re-issuing the cards, provided that neither side has touched the card. The card shown is not declared unless a re-payment has been made.
Before flipping the trump card, you should stop the distribution of cards made without priority or using a deck of opponents. After the trump card is shown, the change is considered valid with the decks retained if a replacement has been made.
Misdeal. If the dealer:
a) does not present a deck for withdrawal, and his opponent discovers an error before showing a trump card and viewing his cards,
b) gave the card incorrectly and did not correct the error until the next card was issued,
c) recounts cards on the table or in the deck,
d) does not give each player the proper number of cards and an error is discovered before all players have time to make moves in the drawing of the first trick,
e) see a trump card before the end of the change,
f) put the trump card face down on his cards or cards of another player.
The dealer does not lose his rights if during the deal one of the opponents touches a card or otherwise stops the dealer.
Trump card. The dealer must leave the trump card lying on the table with the picture up until it is his turn to make a move in the drawing of the first trick. The announcement of a trump card is allowed if it remains on the table after opening and turning over the cards of the second trick. This card should be named after it is legally taken. The player who named the indicated card may demand that one of the opponents declares a trump card. However, the player has the right to find out which of the suits is trump.
Wrong number of cards in hand. If at any time after the first trick is played by all players (with the correct deck), one of the players will find an excess or deficit in the cards, and the opponents will have the correct number of cards in their hands, then the latter can appoint:
b) the drawing of this change. In this case, surplus or shortage of cards are not taken into account.
A retake must also be done if one of the opponents has the wrong number of cards in his hands.
If one of the players has an extra card in his hands due to a missed move in the bribe draw, his opponents can take advantage of the above privilege only after this player’s move in the bribe draw following the bribe that was missed in the draw.
Cards to be announced. Any opponent can declare the following cards:
a) any card shown on the table in violation of the rules of the drawing. This also includes a card played in an extraordinary call.
b) any card discarded with the card of the first or any other move in the drawing of this bribe. The player must indicate the card played.
c) any card seen by the partner.
d) any card named by the player who holds it.
All cards to be announced must be placed face up on the table. In the case of an announcement, the player must go with these cards, subject to the implementation of the moves without a renounce. An announcement can be repeated at the draw of each trick until this card is played. You can not interfere with the player in the drawing of the card to be announced. The punishment loses force if the player can get rid of this card in the process of drawing.
If a player comes in from a card that has no equal in suit in the hands of the opponent, and then, without waiting for the move of the partner, comes in with one or more cards, any of the opponents may demand that the latter take the first trick. In this case, the remaining incorrectly played cards are subject to announcement, regardless of whether he walked with these cards in turn or laid them all on the table at once.
A player with a card to be announced does not have the right to use another card until opponents have announced their desire or unwillingness to declare a card free.
Extraordinary call. If the player makes the first move not in turn, then at the first approach of the turn of this player or his partner, the suit may be withdrawn from them. Only an opponent sitting to the right of a player who can legally be revoked a penalty can recover a penalty.
A fine cannot be collected if a player does not have cards in the suit, which he must open upon request, as well as if all players made moves in accordance with the erroneous first move. If not all players went to the draw of this trick, then the cards played in this way are not subject to announcement and must be returned.
Extraordinary move. If the third player makes a move earlier than the second player, then the fourth can go earlier than the second. If the third player did not make a move, and the fourth left before the second, then the third may require that the second go the highest or lowest in open suit with a card. In the absence of a card of this suit, he can go with a trump card or a simple card in a bribe draw.
Abandoned bribes. If all four players throw their cards on the table face up, then a further draw of this change is not allowed, and its result depends on the recognition or non-recognition of the legality of this. In this case, upon detection of a renaissance, a fine for renaissance enters into force.
Renunciation. The player can correct his renouncement before the bribe cards, in the drawing of which this renounce takes place, are turned down if this player or his partner in any turn made an opening or move in the drawing of the next trick, as well as if the partner did not ask him the question of the availability of a card in the rendered suit. An erroneously played card may be requested if the player corrected his mistake to save the renon.
The penalty for the renunciation is the transfer of two bribes by the opponent to the side that made the renounce. A fine can be recovered for all the renaissances that took place in the drawing of this change. None of the parties can win the game on this change, if both sides make the renaissance.
The player who renders it and his partner may demand to play the change in which the renounce was made and get all the points they won within six.
Renons can be announced at any time prior to the presentation and removal of the deck for the next change, but not later.
Miscellaneous. When taking a bribe, as well as before anyone has time to touch the cards, any participant in the game may require that the players take their cards.
If one of the players makes a statement like: “I can win the rest”, “The rest is ours”, “We have a game”, then his partner must put his cards on the table, and these cards can be requested.
The player may be sentenced to the same penalty as for the renouncement if he does not fulfill the legal requirement to go the eldest or youngest card suit, play or not play a trump card, and also open the suit.
In all cases when a player is sentenced, he must wait for the final decision of the opponents.
