Limousine pick-up at the airport (or horse and carriage if you wish) 3. A Deluxe Suite at the Hotel for three days...

Dirty Hearts, Clean Hearts

Hi! The debate goes on... Hearts was designed as a "cuthroat" game. As long as there are players who are "duckers and dumpers", the philosophy of "every man for himself" will always be a factor. Barring extreme bad luck of the cards, there is no doubt in my mind that three players CAN work as a Team...

Grand Prix National Championship - Sept. 04

Hello everyone. I appreciate all of the kind words regarding the Nationals. In order to conduct such an event, a lot of planning and coordination must occur. Anyone who has ever organized a "live" event will understand this. The Grand Prix (now in its sixth year) is non-profit, and 100% of the Spons...

Grand Prix Qualifiers

Hi! In order for an event to be sanctioned, there must be at least 16 players participating. The size of the field at the Nationals cannot exceed 100 entries. Thus, the # of official events must be limited. Because Hardwood is a title sponsor of the Nationals for Euchre, the site will conduct two on...

Grand Prix Qualifiers

Hi! Let me answer the questions about the Qualifiers. The "live" event in FL is a separate qualifier, and is its own entity, as are the other 'live" Euchre events. The "on-line" Qualifiers (none have been scheduled yet) are held in the Hardwood venue. The common link is that both types of events (on...

"You've Gotta Have Hearts"

Hello once again. I have watched the responses to my original Post of "Clean vs. Dirty" Hearts. For the record, I am not the one played against the last person who posted to this topic - and decreed that he was a ducker and dumper! LOL I rarely play these days due to my schedule. Hearts is inherentl...

The "Live" Tournament Experience

Hello fellow "Uke" Players! Having posted to the Hearts and Spades Forums, I though it might be a good idea to post in the Euchre "area" as well. Euchre is an integral part of the "Grand Prix" Series. Last year's National Championship drew 96 players to Cincinnati, and more than $5,000 was won by th...

Conventions and Signals

Hi! I started this particular post (although the topic has been discussed previously). There is very little, if anything that can be done (at this time) to enforce the use of "Alerts" if a Partnership is using a Convention or card signal. Bear in mind, that I have stated "Convention" or "Card Signal...

Classic or "Clean" Hearts vs. "Dirty"

Individuals' or "Cutthroat" Hearts is a game of skill, and when played with discipline and purpose -can be a very stimulating and entertaining! Great Hearts competitors who know how to play the game. Their strategy is quite simple -- get the low man! No frills, no fancy plays -- just aim low! "Ducki...
