Shooting the Moon - taking all 13 Hearts plus the Queen of Spades - is the Holy Grail of any good Hearts player. No wonder - it gives you a 26-point lead against every other player. Consequently, you'll want to be on the alert for opportunities to Shoot the Moon, and for ways to foil your opponents' attempts to do so.
When is your hand ripe for Shooting the Moon?
The first thing to notice is whether you have low Hearts. It is nearly impossible to Shoot the Moon if you are holding a low Heart, since you will almost certainly lose this Heart to another player. This is why, for both offensive and defensive reasons, good players tend to pass at least one low Heart.
For Shooting the Moon, the best setup in your Hearts suit is an unbroken string of Hearts from the Ace on down - the further down, the better. The next best - and usually more attainable - is no Hearts at all.
it's just "the Holy Grail of any good Hearts player" Basically, this ain't gonna be an easy hand to get LOL
