Solar Sniper

Shoot the sun by taking every single trick in a hand. Earn this in Single Player or Xbox Live play.  

Play on partners and any hand where you have three aces, three kings, and at least 6 high cards in one suit, give this a shot. Pass your three lowest cards. If you don’t have the Ace of Clubs, it probably isn’t worth it. If you have the Two of Clubs, you have to pass it or you can’t take the first trick. Start by playing each Ace, and keep track of all the royalty that is played that you don’t have in your hand. This way you always know what the remaining high card is in each suit. If you don’t have the fourth Ace, make sure you don’t play that suit until it is played on you. Next, play any other cards you have that are the remaining high card in suits, except for the suit you have the most cards in. Once you can be beaten in a suit, stop playing it. You should get to a point where you have only a few cards outside of your major suit, at which point you should play that, from high to low. The last couple of tricks can be dicey, but if you have noted the cards played you can see which cards can be beaten and try to play those last. In those cases, hopefully your partner is the one with cards higher than you in that suit, because if he takes the trick it counts toward this achievement.

I'm pretty sure I got this one by putting it to partners, changing the speed to the second fastest (because putting it to the fastest made it hard to see where the tricks were going) and then trying to shoot the sun every hand. If I failed, I just clicked the button to put out whatever card the cursor thing landed on to speed it up until the next hand.
