The nuances of passing, ability to hold the queen, making sure the lead comes from infront of low by the all important pass, and as was stated before by VictoriaÖ.TRUST.
Due to the large amount of points for 1st and 2nd place, any chance of a lowman game has been eradicated. I have noticed in a couple of games this month that Lowman, even after the 1st round, is now passing moons to make sure there is a second, and then the first and second hit the 3rd and 4th to keep their position safe, and battle between each other. I guess I canít blame them if they want the points, and I guess we can all adjust our games to play in the same way. However, it isnít the hearts game I knew and loved, with strategy, good passing and trusting that the higher players will hold the queen for low if there is a possibility to do that.
I thought the changes were to enhance the lowman game, not to play cutthroat hearts.
I do hope the points go back to 5-2-2-2.
