Whist \Whist\, n. [From Whist, interj.]
A certain game at cards; -- so called because it requires
silence and close attention. It is played by four persons
(those who sit opposite each other being partners) with a
complete pack of fifty-two cards. Each player has thirteen
cards, and when these are played out, the hand is finished,
and the cards are again shuffled and distributed.
Note: Points are scored for the tricks taken in excess of
six, and for the honors held. In long whist, now seldom
played, ten points make the game; in short whist, now
usually played in England, five points make the game.
In American whist, so-called, honors are not counted,
and seven points by tricks make the game.
Bridge whist. See Bridge, n., above.
Duplicate whist, a form of whist in playing which the hands
are preserved as dealt and played again by other players,
as when each side holds in the second round the cards
played by the opposing side in the first round.
Solo whist. See Solo whist, above.
