Euchre QOD: “Play like a parasite”
A loner assured
Played right the game is over
Played wrong you suffer
“Stay home” – this is what you do when your partner opts to go alone. Used in context it would go something like this. “I’m going alone partner so you can just stay home”.
Hand of the week
Consider the following situation…
The score is 0 – 0. You are sitting in the first seat and are dealt the following hand.
The turned up card is the 9 of clubs. You tell your partner to stay home opting (as you should) to go alone.
First Trick: You properly lead with the Right Bower. The player on your left plays the 10 of clubs and the player on your right plays the 9 of clubs.
Second Trick: You next play the Left Bower. The player on your left plays the 10 of hearts and the other player plays the Queen of clubs.
You’ve already gotten 2 tricks and are well on your way to a march. What should you lead next?
We’ll talk about the answer tomorrow.
