Wow this Blocking certainly is a stinker. As i said at the start of this thread, "i never used to block until i came to HW" the 1st year i never blocked once, but the 9s up game and my P changed me a little. Bonnie said to me one day, "why don't you Block G, my reply i think was, that it's too big a...

I go to bed and wake up, and there is another page here to read, good stuff Girls and Boys, keep it going. I thought we might have had a couple of very good Terry jokes in here by now. :lol:

If i may put my Pennies worth in here. I really don't think the beginners are afraid of calling, i believe and know alot of the time they don't know the true worth of whats in their hand, and without knowing the value of "Next" and "Crossing the Creek" i think there is a lable there that has stuck w...

Umm there is no Discrepancy in games, it is down to the ability of each player on how they get the result. %s are something that come out after thousands or Millions of games not a day or a week. You can take advantage of the Beginner player that sometimes as you say, Doesn't call, so the better pla...

Excellent question 2nd Heart and there are a couple of answers. If the deal is turned down and i am in the 1st seat and have 3 next trump with no Bowers, i would and do lead the lowest trump, remember there are only potentially seven trump out there. What you do is not wrong but if you have three tr...

"up a crk" You asked me for an opinion and scenario where it would be better to lead trump in that situation, i gave that to you and now you are arguing with yourself. I am truly sorry if you don't believe in %s or if i offended you, but i won't agree on something that i know is the wrong option per...

Ok you seem to be very negative on what the outcome could be. I can give you 100 scenario's but i won't waste my time, also in an ordinary situation of ordering the opposition up if your P dosen't lead trump you will be set most of the time unless you have a freak hand, that's a fact. It seems you a...

As i said, it is a little bit of a 50/50 thing mainly because you have ordered a player the Right Bower when your hand has no show of succeeding on it's own merit. Just remember it is supposidly a Block. When you order the opposition in a normal NO block situation it is imperitive if your P has Trum...

Nice question "up a crk" It's a little bit of a 50/50 thing, remember that most Blocks are wrong anyway, they are wrong to the extent that normally the opposition have the stopper but it's about a 5% shot that your P has a point, or a 1 in 20 shot. Hey where do i get these figures from, just by watc...

A tip for the beginners when going alone and have say, three trump and two offsuit. Ok hand consists of Left and Right Bower & Queen of trump, Ace Offsuit and lets say Queen of another Offsuit. Lead the Bowers and if after the second lead the opposition have shown they have no trump remaining don't ...

Thank the euchre God that someone else is having a crack at answering these questions, nj Kam but ya hourly rate stays the same, 39c per/hr US. You are right in what you say about the 1st and 2nd seat, they should have done their stuff if they could. The 3rd seat is a no no unless you are strong, do...

"Hey Colin what colours do we follow today" reply, i am told Red is hot on the odd Tables and Blue on the even Tables. This type of conversation is very common in the Lobby. Come on guys you are far better than that. I think about 7million games of Euchre have been played on HW, i don't know the sta...
