I have enjoyed playing pitch over the years with my grandma. I still to this day cant figure out how you can make a bid of 5 with just an Ace and a couple of spotters in your hand but she did it countless times.... The last we played cards my mom and grandpa came from behind and won by 1 point. They cheated in my opinion. Lol. Tina (Poe) Wagner
