Hi,

Is it considerered against the rules, bad manner, etc. for a chief partner (or vice partner) to play AGAINST him in order to prevent him of winning the game ?

Thanks.

Against the rules? No.

Not in spirit of the game? It's an individual game played with changing teams. If playing against you current partner gives your another chance of winning, whereas not doing so results in a sure loss then ... why not.

Of course, all in good spirit, and I certainly won't do it in all companies.

And be sure it's not king making ....

It is not in bad manner. It is part of the game. During the end game a leader must choose his bids carefully to insure that he's reasonably "bullet proof" against an uncooperative partner if bidding for chief.

Some people mitigate this by having a variable game ending.
