hi Alan,

Like your hearts site. One thing, though.

On your page, I believe the strategy hint titled Cover Your Pass contains some incorrect information. If you are holding the 2 5 9 and Jack of hearts, to pass the 9 or any heart will NOT stop the receiver from shooting, but rather the opposite. If you pass the 2 5 or 9 and the receiver holds the A K Q of hearts, and hearts are broken to him and he begins to shoot by leading back his high hearts, your Jack will be lost to his Queen on the third trick unless you were passed a heart to cover. The best way to stop a shoot in (the suit of) hearts if you are holding the 2 5 9 and Jack of hearts is to hold all 4 cards. Then your Jack will be the high heart after the shooter exhausts his A K and Q.
