Hearts-"Shoot the Moon"
« on: June 29, 2005, 06:34:18 pm »
The hearts weekly challenge for July 6th requires that we "shoot the moon" once to get the badge.  This is the definition of shooting the moon:

Shooting the Moon
When one player takes all Hearts and the Queen of Spades in one round. That player then has the option to either add 26 points to everyone's score or subtract 26 points from his or her own score.

I can only hope that some hearts players can come up with some tips.  I've never played this game anywhere but at pogo, so I can barely get through it. 
Don't be pushed by your problems.  Be led by your dreams.

Tips I can think of off hand would be if you double browsed you could control your partner passing cards to you and if you were trying to shoot have partner go under or throw hearts at right time.
Also watch your hearts when passing cards.
If you have a-k-4-7 (example)  pass the 4-7 so your only hearts are winners.
Also if you are loaded in one suit get rid of all your hearts.
There is no trump so you can run the table if you are one suit heavy.
Hope this helps some.

Double browsing is explained in the Club Center of this site.

Double browsing would certainly help, but since it's only one you need, the Capt's advice is good.

If you have no concern about any other wins, just load up on hearts and high spades and try to take all the later hands.  Most times you'll crash and burn but it shouldn't take more than 10 hands tops to do this...

Jeffer is right, as usual.  I am going to play with a friend and communicate well while doing so.  I will play the Queen and get it as soon as possible and play all the high hearts and try to take the low ones.  It sounds more intimidating than it is.

there is a program called smart explorer where you can load as many names as you want so you can play as everyone at the table O0

Just wondering how you shoot for the moon in Hearts and if there is a simple way to do it for next weeks challenge?
