I'm calling that for sure. You've got two guaranteed tricks in your hand and you're giving your partner a trump. So you have four trump between you and you know for sure that your partner has a void (as do you).

The worst case scenario is that the enemy has the right and both green aces and even then you should still be able to get at least three tricks between you and your partner.

If you wanted to make the poll a bit tougher, change that Ace of Clubs to something like the Ace or King of Spades...

another way to make the poll tougher is to make this from Seat 1 instead of Seat 2.

Tougher, but still realistically that's a pretty solid call. You still have two tricks in your hand. If your partner has either a void in green or a green ace, you've got your point.

The only other way to play it would be to sandbag. If you pass and the enemy calls, you have a reasonable hand to euchre them with. You also have an okay hand for a spades call in round 2.

The way to make this poll tougher is to put you in seat 3. That's the only position where it's not an easy call.
