Re: The G with some Basics.

Todd, i'm sure a guy with your intelligence knows what i mean. :shock: With 9s or 7s up, it makes no difference. I mean't you could possibly have two more trump out against your loner in the 7s game, forget the percentage, this is after the fact (deal) I worded the kitty thingy very badly. If you go...

Re: The G with some Basics.

Had an email asking, why would we in a 7s up game block less. Simple answer is, no need to block at all. There are too many stoppers for you, the best one being the kitty, 12 dead cards or 38% of the deck. It is very rare to block in this format of the game. The blockers will be way out of touch if ...

Re: You win Jonas!

I am now sitting in the New 7s up room, it's amazing, dealer even dealt a 6, but we sorted him on that, he promised it won't happen again, i said "deal 5s if you like" Yeah well Dreams are free, arn't they? Vodka and pure Lemon please barman, i'm going back to the real world to get my arse kicked wi...

Re: 2010 Euchre Grand Prix

Yes, well done Tam & Rob. It's never easy in a live tourney. I'm just sorry i couldn't be there with you guys this year, i'm still in the land of Mao. Hope i can put something together for next year. I'm teaching the Chinese to play Euchre and have lost five shirts off my back already, never mind th...

Re: The G with some Basics.

You are right Terry, euchre in all facets of the site has slowed down immensely. I can't help but feel when i joined a few years ago, the interest in the site was enormous, now in my view we struggle to reach 200 in Smoot's at the peak playing times, seven years ago 240-270 was very common as you wo...

Re: General HW Euchre Courtesies

DEVILISH, it's called common courtesy, nothing to do with socalled rules. It is very rare to see a player play one game when they lose, it's mostly a jump in and out when they win. Pretty rare in a 2000 game, players won't let that player sit again. As for going alone on 9, that is just plain ego tr...

Re: The G with some Basics.

Haha Crocker. Believe me when i say, there is no skill required. I haven't written much in here of late, but you gave me an idea of how to really explain the NEXT call in the 1st seat. Remember though NEXT is a percentage call in the 1st seat, it is not neccessarily the RIGHT call. I will explain it...

Re: Not allowed To Pick A card for Discard

The 9 of Clubs would have been the card you picked up. You can't discard the card you hoist. :) :)

Re: New HW Upates?

Wow, strong line of words up a crk, no one is demanding anything. I for one know that if the 7s up option is introduced to HW Euchre, the player base will increase. Two things will happen with this format, The deal will take care of alot of the loners we see at the moment, plus players that have onl...

Re: The Rating Game

Ok, hands up everyone who wants to join my 1300 club, no Brits or higher than 1349 allowed. In all seriousness, the Top 25 players on this site will always be the top 25 players regardless who their partner is. They may well play alot together but they change partners a huge amount within the top pl...

Re: The Rating Game

Yep, this has always been a huge disadvantage. You can't even pick a good provi game without booting heaps of players with 1300 ratings who refuse to reset. Now that might sound unkind, but as Bucky said, the point difference is too much for the serious player to win overall. I respect the players w...

Re: The G with some Basics.

I know we have beaten some subjects to death on here, but the "NEXT" call is really quite amazing for what it achieves, consciously or subconsciously. Players tell me on a daily basis that they don't believe in the Next call in the 1st seat, they call their own hand, this may well be true, what they...

Re: The G with some Basics.

Have just returned from 3 great days in Sydney, wow the weather was hot. Played some amazing 7s up Euchre with my brother who is an excellant player, but won't play the HardWood short deck. I do hope the 7s game isn't too far away from this site. We played for about six hours and i wrote a few stats...

Re: The G with some Basics.

I have been unindated with IMs from players who are complaining about a certain group of Nics that are making it nearly impossible to win a game if played against. I have looked at these and watched their games, you guys are 100% right, they are totally suspect. I have forwarded the names to admin a...
