Quick tricks is one method of hand evaluation in the card game Bridge. Basically, it counts the number of "sure" tricks in a suit.
- A = 1
- AK = 2
- AQ = 1.5 (because the Q has a 50% chance of winning a trick if you take a finesse)
- K = 0.5
- KJ = 1.0
- AKQ = 2 (not 3, because someone will likely ruff the 3rd round)
- KQ = 1
The disadvantage of this method is that it overvalues Aces and King, and undervalues Queens and Jacks. Both the high card point
method and losing trick count
methods are better adjusted to this problem.
