Re: The G with some Basics.

I am a statistical freak and thought you would enjoy this set. There have only been 10 players in HW Euchre that have reached the rating of 2400, some have reached it more than once, and some have been to 2399 a few times. What I have done is taken these players highest 2400 and posted in order of m...

Re: The G with some Basics.

Have been asked lately about Cut Euchre. Here is my personal opinion. Cutthroat Euchre is an amazing game when played by the original correct rules. Firstly I have no idea where the 2nd place let off comes from. Not to lose when finishing 2nd is wrong to me. But I suppose it favours everyone at some...

Re: The G with some Basics.

I have started playing a little more lately, but can't help noticing players complaining about the bad cards of late. So,I have also been watching and replaying many games to have a look at this yet once again. What I did see in my humble opinion, is players playing a singles game in the pairs forma...

Re: The G with some Basics.

Sandbar, sure you may think it's in the wrong area, but this needs to be in an area where it's really noticed. He did well. Players are tired of the late night crap. Many players have been complaing about these nics, they just never put it in writing as Baluka has. Haven't seen a guide there in many...

Re: The G with some Basics.

Thank you for emailing me Baluka with the nics involved. I 100% agree with you on what this guy or guys are trying to do. 30 or 40 nics wit stats like that is so false it's laughable. This isn't possible in the game of anything, let alone Euchre. Stick to your guns and see it through. I am told when...

Re: The G with some Basics.

I would like to give an opinion in a certain scenario concerning the "Left Bower" to lead or not to lead, or lead a smaller trump you hold. I have had so many Partners say to me, G, why didn't you lead the Left. ( you don't have too ) If my partner makes trump and i get the lead, i will lead the Lef...

Re: Flaw in Hardwood Euchre

Your thread has no substance at all. Do you think HW have a plot to keep you down in the ratings? Put something in here with some facts & figures, otherwise just go away and learn the game. I would love to meet the player you say, and I quote, "wins pretty much every hand" believe me, there is no su...

Re: The G with some Basics.

It's been awhile since writing in here, but I would like to add a few more comments about blocking. A few players fairly well up the Euchre tree keep saying that if you don't block, your game will improve out of sight, sorry guys, that's plain wrong. I do agree however, that over blocking will kill ...

Re: The G with some Basics.

I would like to comment on the two players who are rating nics in the early hours of the US. morning. You need to take a very close look at yourselves, because what you are doing is just not possible in real life in the game of euchre. I have played Euchre for dozens of years all over the planet wit...

Re: The G with some Basics.

It is so many months since i have written in here. Many months ago i started to watch a few players that take on a Loner, very very thinly. Iv'e compiled some statistics for you to have a look at, to see what you think and to see if it is really worth while to go so thin. Should they have taken thei...

Re: New changes ! Good or bad?

Wow, this isn't anything like i thought it might be. I have no problem in paying a yearly fee, infact i don't know how you guys have done it for the one off fee for so long. I can do without the Fooms and the fancy deals, but you won't let us have mutiple nics by themselves, come on guys that's the ...

Two Nics logged in

At 2200 Chicago time on the 12/2/10 i logged into Smoots with my nic, 5th seat caller, logged out again to get another nic, The Kid 97. The trouble is, 5th seat caller never logged out and i was able to use both nics in HardWood on the same computer, very strange. Jonas, do you have an answer for th...

Re: SLOW PLAY

Slow play 99% of the time is exactly that, slow play. You can tell if people are cheating very easily. If you set the Timer to 10secs, you will have the room in an uproar. Sometimes there are genuine reasons for it. Set the game with no Timer and be choosy who you play with. :lol: :lol:

Re: The G with some Basics.

Not very often i play British rules, and into the bargain go alone on 10, but i had too really. The score was 10-10, my P had the deal, he turned up the 9 of hearts, i had the top five hearts in my hand. As you Brit players would know, you can't order your P up without going alone. I found out after...
