If you want to get better, come to the Ohio Euchre (sign up) on Monday evenings at 9pm EST. But don't expect to win 60% as all are very good. Then follow the comments on specific hands.

No one can tell you what percent improvement because we don't now where you are now. However, even against average players, 60% is good. Hmmm!

Remember that at its core, euchre is still a card game and you still have to have the cards to win. If you're opponents are always getting the good cards, it won't matter how good you are. Luck alone would dictate that two evenly-skilled players should have a win rate of about 50% each. It's an extremely steep Gaussian curve around that point. Yes, there are some tactics that you can use that might move you a few percentage points to the right of that peak, at least against opponents that don't know them. But your odds of getting much over 50-60% are so astronomical that it's essentially impossible unless you're always playing against drunken morons.

Barring cheating, there's not a whole lot you're going to be able to do to improve that win rate much. By studying here, you might be able to improve it against total amateurs but again, luck alone pretty much dictates that you're not going to get a 70-80% win rate.

Frankee, a 60% win rate is excellent. What is missing is the quality of your opponents. I suggest:

For an excellent online test of your win rate, join the Ohio Euchre Table, Monday nights at 9 PM ET. We play at World of Card Games.

Play online at other times at World of Card Games. After you have played 10 games, you can play “Ranked” games. You receive an “Elo” score. It lets you compare your performance against hundreds of other players.

Test you knowledge and skills against the “Euchre Quiz” on Ohioeuchre. You can find the logic to the recommended answers in the Ohio Euchre “Lessons” section.

You can advance to the “Advanced Euchre Quiz” in the Ohio Euchre forum. This test is definitely more advanced and will challenge your thinking.

You can still go deeper into the intricacies of Euchre in the forum. Post your thinking about how you would handle the various hands.

I am confident that you will be able to satisfy 100% of your desires to improve your knowledge and appreciation of the wonderful game of Euchre.
