A variation of basic Hearts. Standard elements of Hearts still apply as outlined through the rules.
The cards are dealt around as far as they will go evenly. Any remaining odd cards are placed face down for a widow.
No cards are passed before the play. The player to the dealer's left makes the opening lead, and the rules of play are the same as in Four-Hand Hearts, with the following additions:
The widow is added to the first trick.
Cancellation: Two cards of the same rank in the same trick cancel each other, and neither can win the trick. If all cards played to a trick are paired, the trick goes to the winner of the next trick.
