The two of hearts or diamonds is always superior to the three ; the three to the four ; the four to the five ; and the five to the six ; the six is only superior to the seven when it is not trumps ; for when the seven is manille it is the second trump.
Seite 101 - ... not to take up that man. 3. Never be deterred from taking up any one man of your adversary's...
Seite 163 - If the players have crossed each other, he that runs for the wicket which is put down is out.
Seite 65 - No one should play out of his turn ; if, however, he does, he is not basted for it ; but the card played may be called at any time in that deal, provided it does not cause a revoke : or either of the adversaries may, demand the partner of him who played out of his turn, or his own partner, to play any suit he thinks fit.

Seite 71 - ... but if the points be fifteen, it is seven to six against that hand : yet it would not, therefore, always be prudent to stand at fifteen, for as the ace may be calculated both ways ; it is rather above an even bet that the adversary's two first cards amount to more than fourteen.

Seite 8 - If a person supposes he has won the trick, and leads again before his partner has played, the adversary may oblige his partner to win it if he can.
Seite 102 - ... hitting you, and any other chance is but 17 to 1 against him. 5. Two of your adversary's men in your tables are better for a hit than if you had more, provided...
