New Hearts Yahoo (HeartY) Games
We now have a new Hearty format: Team hearts, Play Across Pass Hands Only. This game can be played Regular with Jack of Diamonds On or Off.
By default, Yahoo Hearts plays "Across Pass" on every 3rd hand. We play a variation in Eliters called "Across Pass Hands Only" on unrated Tables since this is only a team variation.
In this variation, every 3rd hand is the "Across Pass" hand. All other hands will be SKIPPED by all players (by hitting the "skip hand" button at upper right.) The game will then advance to the next hand until it reaches "Across Pass". In other words, the Sequence should be (Skip Pass Left, Ship Pass Right, Play Pass Across, then Skip No Pass). Continue this way until the match is finished.
If on the other hands an error is made and the holder of the deuce of clubs leads before the hand is skipped, simply stop play and everyone hit the "Skip Hand" button to cancel the hand.
