This variant is played with players.
After the initial round the player to the left of the last dealer is the new dealer. The dealer shuffles the cards well and then offers the deck to the player to their right to cut the deck. After that player cuts the deck or declines, the dealer deals the cards out to the players in groups of until all the cards are dealt. Once all the cards are dealt every player should have cards. If they have an incorrect number of cards the hand is declared a misdeal, and the dealer must reperform their duties (shuffle, offer a cut, and redeal) until there are no mistakes. Once the deck is successfully dealt the bidding phase begins.
If the player that wins the bid doesn't reach their bid then their score is reduced by the amount they bid, and none of the points they earned during the round count. If they match their bid, or exceed it then they get to keep all the points they earned. The person to the left of the dealer starts the bidding. Everyone including the initial bidder on their initial bid can either bid or pass. If everyone decides to pass then the dealer can either accept the bid at the minimum bid, or they can pass. If the dealer passes then they must redeal the cards.
