Rules for Taking Tricks in Pinochle
Now that all the players have picked up the cards that they melded, the declarer leads everybody to the first trick of the hand. Moving to the left, each player will play a card. Once four cards have been played, the highest rank card of trump will win the trick. If there is no trump, the high rank card of suit will come out as the winner. In the event of a tie, the card that was played first will win the trick. Whoever wins the first trick leads the next one and so forth. This is done until a total of 12 tricks are played.
Of course, there are rules that govern taking tricks. Here are three basic rules that you will want to keep in mind during this part of the game.
In addition to these three rules, there are also some tips that you should keep in mind. They will help you to have more success during the trick taking part of a pinochle hand.
Once a trick is played, the players at the table will be able to tell who won. As a beginner this may be hard for you to do, but over time you will learn to tell the winner just by looking at the cards; it will become more or less second nature.
As you can see, taking tricks, just like laying meld, is where the fun of pinochle really begins.
