Duffer - it does seem your comments were contradicting GTOs'. GTO wrote that "essay" to talk about attitude and cheating. Then it got going in another direction (using paragraphs to separate ideas would be nice) towards euchre strategy. GTOs' opinions are respected by many, and unless I have a solid...

ESP vs other information to make a call..........good arguement that has been debated (lets just keep it friendly). I believe ESP can exist to a certain extent like when your phone rings and you "know" who it is. But it can also be argued that the only reason you know who it is because you know who ...

problems with the updates.........

I downloaded the new updates today and found some problems. First, i had to end the program starting my first game for an "error" message. And secondly (and more important) the card fronts have poor graphics that are not as defined as the old ones (they seem a little blurry). Tell me what I should d...

It is hard to make profitable decisions on just a gut feeling. Hero's points are based on probability that will make the difference between winning and losing. Think about the reactions to the upcard and what the bid is, then you can get a good idea of what everyone is holding. If the Jd is the upca...

Ratings, Ratios and Percentages..........

There has been a lot of controversy over ratings. Do i think ones rating reflects how good he or she is? No. But is there a better way to rate players such as by ratio or percentages? I don't think that's the answer either. If the ratings went only by percentage wins, two top flight players would fi...

Hey Hero!

Nicely said on how to read your opponents hands. It's fun to share tips and opinions about this game we all know and enjoy. Hopefully the game will become stronger, more competitive and for many.....more fun. I know there's a lot of excellent players on hardwoods and I'm hoping to learn a little bit...

A paradox resolved......

In euchre the key to a winning strategy is to be aggressive. When I can make the bid I usually do because how can you beat a game where others are setting the parameters for you? There are aggressive players and passive players in all fun games we play in life. Which brings me to the classic paradox...

most wins....

Knowing most wins would be alright, but i am more curious of win loss ratio. This is another way to see who many of the top flight players are on hardwood. Rating don't tell everything about a players abilities....
