Do you need sort of a walkthrough of your options right now and what's going on?
I bid 7 hearts, if you pass i'll take the widow and then lead the first hand. Then whoever takes the trick from then on will lead. we'd need to win 7 out of 10 hands to get the points.
If you were stong in red you'd maybe want to up the bid to 8, if your strong in black you'd have to bid 8 to take control, and you'd know that i'd be more of a red hand.
Sorry if this is too leading...just trying to explain some gameplay.
