Power Pinochle Bidding System
#17
There are many ways to get to "35".
Tonight during the Thursday night game at Yahoo I was in first seat, I looked at a hand and I had nothing "around". So I stopped evaluating my hand and passed.

As the auction progressed without me, I went and counted my hand for practice. I immediately noticed my 9 card, double A trump suit had a run. I also remembered "8 tricks and a run is 35".

The "-7-6" is simple, quick, and unambiguous.
But the 35 needs to be calculated.
Not under pressure to bid, when I looked at the hand it -looked- like a hand where I should have opened 50.
9 tricks for 22 and a run is enough.
