Changes to Double deck pinochle

Triple pinochle should be 90 also runs should be 20

A few major strategy changes needed

I’ve seen many times when the person with a big point lead is not stuck with a bid. Player with no chance takes the bid rather than “sticking” the leader. Also, I often see where the two players behind are not throwing each other points to battle the point leader.

Cutthroat Pinochle

I have played this game with real people and the way this game is played is totally different. The partner of the bidder should give his partner counters, rather than low cards. Also, when playing 3 handed, the 2 opponents should be giving each other the higher cards, making it harder for the bidder to make their bid.
