Theoretical Bidding System
#9
There is no where in any pinochle rules that I have ever seen that says you have to follow a set of bidding rules and if you do not it is cheating. If you have two different teams coming together to play in a tournament, each with their own set of bidding rules, and each team doesn't know any better, then you are saying that each team is cheating?

If there is a real rule in pinochle, then that is the rule. Pulling rules from other card games and applying them to pinochle doesn't seem quite right to me. If there is no actual complete bidding system that is official, how can we say that not adhering to that non-existent official bidding system is cheating? There isn't even a place online that spells out an unofficial bidding system.

But for argument's sake, if you decided you wanted to use a different bidding system, how are the opponents going to know what it is unless you spend 15 minutes explaining it to them. And will they remember it after a quick explanation? Some food for thought.

Also keep in mind this is a thread in "theory". None of this is actually going anywhere but in discussion and thought.
