New Member, New To Pinochle As Well
I've been playing cards since I was 3 years old, ca 1957.

After a 20 year layoff I've returned to Club and Tournament Bridge.

I spent a year working in Pennsylvania where I found a Pinochle game in ht cafeteria. I kibitzed one day and got invited to watch. It was double deck pinochle. They showed me the meld and very little else. I started out as their 5th wheel, but became a regular when one guy was transferred. They taught no strategy or theory. What I learned I cribbed from the other card games I have played.

Other than bridge, I have spent years playing card German and Italian card games using a Tarok deck. So I'm well versed in bidding, trump, and tricks; just not at Pinochle.
