Re: Random Deal Generator

Found this topic and had to add a bit (I know it's an old thread). I wish I would have been writing down the results of the last few weeks here at HW. :roll: It seems that though not most games I've played but enough of them to be fishy have been flooded with lopsided rounds. I'm not complaining tha...

Re: General HW Euchre Courtesies

2. Chat in the lobby if you're not playing the game Again its such a small thing, but if you're not playing the game and you want to chat to someone thats in the game, then chat in the lobby rather than flood the game chat with your personal conversation. Just a little respect for the other players...

Re: General HW Euchre Courtesies

When it comes to people bailing after one game I believe most people would be happy with a simple "hi you all doing? This is going to be a quick one for me, gotta get back to work" or something. It's just nice to know I guess. As for going alone on eight the problem is simply that unless it's a layd...

Re: General HW Euchre Courtesies

I've noticed quite a few extremely rude people on HW lately. One thing I could do without is the *SNIP*who can't accept losing and has to call you a bagger or say you're cheating. I had an opponent order the deal into my hands yesterday and then get euchred and called me a bagger?! :shock: (that was...

Re: The G with some Basics.

The question isn't really aimed at getting an answer for one specific hand, but rather a more broad sense of leading. Obviously the answer changes as you change the details of the hand. When I played this particular game it was a series of times that I had led next when the op's called it and my p w...

Re: The G with some Basics.

Ok I have something for you all. I just got jumped for leading next in the 1st seat when it was picked up by the other team. So I'll put it on the table for discussion. When you're in the first seat and trump has been picked up by your opponents what would you lead? I know it depends on what's in yo...

Re: Hi everyone

Well, three months and 1000 games using the advice from this forum and I've got myself 5 nics all over 1550. 2 over 1650 and one at 1750. Can't thank you guys and gals enough!!! It's like a light bulb was turned on (though the breaker still gets tripped once in awhile) and the game is just easier to...

Re: Network Congestion

I suggest openly eating a bowl of turtle soup as you play while wearing a "Down With Turtles" t-shirt. Letting the turtles know where you stand is the first step in showing them that you won't be pushed around. Maybe even an "I Bet On The Rabbit" shirt would help. Fight for freedom sister, you're no...

Re: Choose the hand!

This exact situation isn't something you'll see everyday but you do see the dealer pick up a bower, then while holding both of them and random shhtuff throw the jacks out straight away. I call this the Prom Night mentality...think about it :wink: Nothing makes you want to pull out your hair more. Si...

Re: Hi everyone

Thanks Todd. Sure wish people here in Colorado knew about the game, then I'd have some live play too. :D I miss reading people's actions. Less gut and more statistics online but it's still tons of fun. Things are turning like I knew they would, just venting. :wink: I do need to call more often thoug...

Re: The G with some Basics.

Hi guys. Novice, just thought I'd say from experience on here that the people giving advice in this thread and others ARE top rated players. I introduced myself back in January and was happy to see how warm everyone was and how willing they are to help. I'm trying to apply their advice right now and...

Re: Hi everyone

Arrrgghhh!! This past week has been one large blow out on Hardwood for me. Every nic of mine has dropped at least 100 points....and for the life of me I just can't figure out what's happening. Seems most hands I'm carrying a fist full of 9's 10's and Queens with at least 3 suits. The majority of the...

Re: The G with some Basics.

Hi everyone, been a bit busy..... One of the biggest problems for me seeing as I'm in the 1550-1650 range is the vast amount of people playing in that point spectrum that refuse to call next unless they're holding a monster hand and in turn chew you out for doing it and getting euchred. (of course t...

Re: Standardised Win/Loss Ratings for Provis

I ended at 16-4....gotta love pards that wanna call diamonds when a black bower was turned down and only have left-10 with small garbage to boot. Arggh.
