This happened 2 x in the states this year to me , both hands very similar
Both times I get called to the table as a ref.Both times forehand has laid this hand on the table and announced spades overt.
I was asked is this game legal,is he allowed to play this, and what is it worth.
What I did in both causes was kinda funny,as in my eyes these are both big grand hands.I reached into my pocket and and gave the player a dollar and said thank you here is a dollar because I have never seen one before. this is a legal spades overt and there is such a game.x out all the blocks on the list like you would a grand overt and count the multipliers accordingly. With 3 play 4,hand 5,schneider 6, Schneider announced 7,schwartz 8,schwartz announced 9 and open 10=110pts
Grand hand Schneider announced is 168pts and that is why I probably have never seen a spades overt.
I have heard of the second scenario and then the ace 10 was in the skat to boot,with 10 overt,17 x 11, I wont even do the math as the grand is still worth more.
Only in America
There probably is a time and place to play a colour overt.I just don't know when or would even recognize it,so if you see one play this game give them a dollar and say thanks for the experience
