Monday Night Euchre Hand #1

Unread post by Tbolt65 » Wed Apr 28, 2021 10:52 pm

Lefty requested I posted these two hands that I had and second one will be following.

My thoughts on this hand by the way. Being down 6-9 in seat 3 you absolutely have to bag here. Two points is so huge here, and it will be your deal if you euchre. It will be 8-9, your deal. it makes no sense to order here. Plus there are rare opportunities that if I do pass as dealer(I'm not btw in this hand), but if I do pass. Seat 1 will sometimes have a game winning loner possibility. So much upside. Also with the type of player IrishWolf is. There is no way on this Earth he is passing at 6-9, Round 2. Absolutely No way. So with all that being considered, Trust your partner(Looks at Wes aka the legends /wave) to call something or to help you out on a Euchre possibility.

P.S. Wes I'm going to keep hammering it home until you understand what I'm getting at.

Could not be said better, exactly my sentiments. And that order hand is only rated at 2.25 to 2.5 tricks. You must have 3 sure tricks when ordering the dealer.
And I can bag on hearts and diamonds (or call hearts), and seat 3 has clubs covered.

Not sure what you're saying here. You know I would never make that call. Even with an amateur in S1 I would not make that call in this spot. The only exception is if I'm in a close out spot with an amateur I cannot trust in the 2nd rd. Say my team is up 9-X where X = 7 or less. It's probably worth biting the bullet and making a -EV call hoping to get lucky. Another score of interest is at 9-9 with an amateur P who will pass in the 2nd rd if the action gets to him. Talk about a "f**k you" spot!

well, I must say, I should have passed. But watching it replay, I should also have not lead trumps there at all. So I double goofed it. called wrong/played wrong. but it's a point if I play it correctly. Now, if Tbolt passes there (he says no) I would love to hear was Irish was going to call. Because if it's next it has a chance. I don't see reverse making it.

Just further illustrates how you play, constantly. Is this not think ahead or having a strategy. But My point is this is HARD WIRED and serious doubt you will even attempt to Change. It will take a massive undertaking to correct your issues. I am sure you will deny that too, and that is at the root. You have to be open minded to receive feedback and not be defensive and in denial. I mean that at as constructive criticism. I KNOW you think I am beating up on your, well maybe some because you P I S S E D me off with B.S. So I will apologize in advance for that. I am not perfect, don't think I am. But you have a long ways to go to achieve elite status in Euchre. Don't over rate your status.

However, just some feedback, you have left a trail of that (denial and defensiveness). From the time of playing that Ace to your A/K signaling at the inappropriate time to the Discarding. Both continue as two examples. And with this I shall be mute as to how you Play.

Not a problem Lefty! If I can help you in any way, I will. It's just a game!

Good luck in your tournament.
