[[Forehand (card player)|Forehand]], to the right of the dealer, now opens the bidding with "pass" or ''Dreier''. [[Middlehand]] may also pass or raise to an ''Untern''. The dealer, [[rearhand]] (''Hinterhand''), may pass or raise. Apart from ''Solo'', the contracts must be bid for in ascending order. A player who has been overbid by a 'younger' or more 'junior' player may "hold" and has positional priority unless overbid again. The highest bidder becomes the declarer and plays alone against the other two players (the "defenders"). The bidding increments are as follows:<ref name=Beck/>
 
* ''Dreier'' - 3 game points.
* ''Dreier'' - 3 game points. The declarer exposes the ''talon'' and takes either the first or last three cards from the talon. The declarer then discards three cards from her hand and places it onto her trick pile, these three count as her first trick. Kings or Trull cards may not be discarded; other trumps can't be discarded unless there is no other option. All discarded cards must be shown to the defenders. The remaining cards from the ''talon'' are added to the defenders' trick pile.
* ''UnternUnterer'' - 4 game points. Declarer takes the lower 3 cards of the talon.
* ''OberenOberer'' - 5 game points. Declarer takes the upper 3 cards of the talon.
 
*In ''Dreier''each -case, 3 game points. Thethe declarer exposes the ''talon'', lays out the cards in order and takes either the first or last three cards from the talon. The declarer then discards three cards from her hand and places it onto her trick pile, these three count as her first trick. Kings or Trull cards may not be discarded; other trumps can't be discarded unless there is no other option. All discarded cards must be shown to the defenders. The remaining cards from the ''talon'' are added to the defenders' trick pile.{{efn|The names of the two higher bids – ''Unterer'' and ''Oberer'' – mean "lower" and "upper" and may refer to a time when the declarer had to pick up the lower or upper half of the talon. This rule is sometimes still seen in other variants of three-hand Tarock.}}
