Some euchre stats

Euchre QOD: “It’s not always right to lead the right.”

Euchre Haiku:
Feel five cards in hand
How many tricks are they worth?
If more than one, bid.

Euchre Palaver
“Trick” – Four cards laid on the table during a single turn. The winner of the trick is the person who laid the highest ranking card. They collect all the cards in the trick, lay them face down, and lead a card for the next trick. A single trick is one fifth of a game.

The Stats
There are 42,504 possible euchre hands.
There are 84 possible 5-trump hands.
There is a 0.2% chance of getting dealt a 5-trump hand.
That’s 1 time in every 500 hands.
Which means on average you’ll see one 5-trump hand every 50 games.
