I play cutthroat as a means to exercise my brain. At 75, I’ve started to see my brain lose its sharpness and I use Pinochle as a means to counter the creeping signs of dementia. Besides, I’ve been a pinochle addict most of my life. I recommend it to all my friends especially those who’ve forgotten how to play. This game teaches you! My daughter, who’d never learned the game, was able to learn it in a few hours! It’s fun!

Using the “ten” card in trump when playing 15 card “cut-throat.”

My opposing players do not use the “ten” card in trump properly when playing out the hands.

For example, if an opponent of mine of has 2 cards remaining, the queen and the 10 of trump, and I have the jack and the ace of trump, if I lead the jack of trump, my opponent will play the queen, winning the trick, but getting no points, and will then lose the ten to my ace. My opponent should have played the ten to beat my jack, in order to get a point.

if you enjoy pinochle then dowload the app

been playing pinochle for 50+ years but hard to find people todayvthat know how to play. app is enjoyable and keeps my playing sharp. lots of options. very much like playing live 3 handed. only down side is no matter how you play when you are getting close to winning the mandatory opening bid falls to you. and more often the not you end up going set because being dealt the winning hand doesnt usually happen. you can follow the progression but that doesnt take away from the enjoyment of playing. game has lots of options which are nice too. i would like to see the computer keep a running list of suits made trump.
