At this stage of the game, as soon as any player chooses a trump, the bidding end. If all players pass for the second round then the game is forfeit and the player to the left of first dealer will become dealer and redistribute the cards for the next game. The player who speaks must take the card on the table regardless of what suit he chose, and are dealt 2 cards while the remaining players are dealt an additional 3 cards each. Once a trump is selected and crads been dealt, the dealer will lead the first turn by playing a card. He can play any card he wants, and the suit of the card he played will become the suit of the current trick, where the remaining players must follow suit if they can. If a player does not have cards of the same suit then he must play a trump, if he does not have any trumps then he can play any card. If the current trick contains trump cards, then you must play a higher ranked trump if you can. The requirement to play a trump is relaxed if your partner is the current trick winner. After all 4 players have played their cards, the highest ranked trump wins the trick, if no trumps were played then the highest ranked card of played suit wins the trick. The ranks of non-trump cards are A-10-K-Q-J-9-8-7, while the ranks of the trump cards are J-9-A-10-K-Q-8-7. The trick winner starts the next trick and the round ends when all 8 tricks have been played.

The winner of the last trick gets an additional 10 points. If a player owns the queen and the king of trump, he is entitled to an additional 20 points. If the round is won while having the other team won no tricks, then an additional 252 points are awarded. If the round is won with a player winning all tricks by himself, an additional 350 points are awarded to his team.
