Pitch is a trick-taking card game popular in the United States. Descended from an English game called "All Fours" and a later game called "Seven Up", Pitch is also known as "Auction Pitch", "Setback", and "High-Low Jack". There are similar games known as "Smear" (or "Schmier"), "Cinch", "Smudge", "Pedro", and "California Jack". It is played with a standard 52-card deck (with or without aces), and may be played by 2 to 7 players, either in partnerships or cutthroat (each player for him or her self).
