Whilst playing some provi games this week i had some players asking about how to defend a Loner and what to lead. It's common sense not to lead a singleton ace against a loner because it tells your P nothing about your hand. What i would suggest to players that want an excellant example of this and ...

Without a doubt HardWood was the best Euchre site on the Planet, now it is the worst at a certain hour with our drunken, Abusing, threatening Bully back on the late shift. What do we have to do to convince admin that this Guy is not good for their site, full stop. The stuff he does is so far out of ...

In the last week or so i have played a few Provincial games with players that asked me to help them out if i could with the "Next" call and "Crossing the Creek". The one thing i noticed very quickly was the players in the 1st seat were very quick to cross the creek when they thought they didn't have...

Ok Kam, in my opinion there are two answers to this. If i am playing in a regular game with a P that i know will order me if they have a couple of Hearts, or if they pass they are telling me they are Black or have nothing. So with this scenario and if the game is in a delicate situation lets say we ...

Do they cheat? Have been asked this question many many times. Cheats are increditably easy to catch. (a) Don't judge a pair of players because they make a few good leads and their calling is spot on for a couple of games. (b) If you really think they are cheating watch every game you can, if they co...

I have probably had my share of opinion on this, but you are right Sweetness, the Lobby at that time of the day is horrible. What has happened to this place? Same old rubbish every damn night. Our friend made it that difficult for one player last night she had to leave before she was totally demoral...

Ok Boys and Girls up until now i have kept my personal opinions out of this, all the stuff i have talked about stands on it's own merit of %. But i am going to go a little into players bagging from the (1st seat) as this is the prime calling seat. I always watch games as much as i can as quite frank...

I am deeply sorry if i have offended anyone with putting these basic tactics on Euchre in this forum. But by the ruckus in the lobby by a certain couple of players saying they are tired of me setting myself up as the euchre God, has seriously made me think what i am doing here. When i was approached...

Hi Lady, If any Club is turned down and the 1st seat calls Spades, that is a next call regardless of the rank of card. The same is for the other colour, Diamonds turned down and Hearts called by the 1st seat. I don't want to complicate things but if the 2nd seat calls next it has a whole different e...

You are very welcome Les. Most of you Guys have amazing individual play prints. To me that is a sign of great Intuition, as we all know this game aint all luck. Excuse the pun, haha. :) :)

Hi Robby, Excellent Question. In general terms most players would tell you, "It's Crossing The Creek" (which it is) but i have always termed that as a Ps "Next" call, the reason being is that you have more than likely called your Ps hand. This is the same as the 1st seat calling the other Red, more ...

Well i shoulda known better to put players names on the block, but i really feel these players are damn good, but have had peeps saying why isnt He or She there. I made the list for players that wanted help and i feel these are the Boys and Girls to do it. This is not a rating List. There is a speci...
