Euchre for all seasons

Euchre QOD: “You can fool some of the people some of the time and usually that’s enough

Euchre Haiku:
A new season starts
Perfect play is possible
But will still need luck

Euchre Update:
Tonight starts the next euchre league. We’ve been out of it for the whole summer but my partner and I are back. Since our last match I’ve learned a few things about euchre and hope to convince my partner to employ some of the winning strategies. For example, she’s never been much of a “next” caller. I’d like to see her start playing that way. I haven’t been much of one either, but as we saw in this previous post on ordering next, that is the best way to go. I’ll keep you posted as to how we do.

Euchre Universe:
And remember next weekend is the big World Series of Euchre! Unfortunately, this editor will not be able to attend as I am traveling to St. Louis for work and I have my big marathon joggling event the next weekend. That's a lot of traveling. But we may have a report from one of our key affiliates who is going to try his hand at the event. Good luck Harv!

Euchre on the Web:
As a follow-up to the post of the Top Ten Euchre Tells, I found this cool article at Euchre Links. It contains some online euchre tells that weren’t considered. Check it out. It’s even funny.

My partner in the WSOE is not much of a "next" caller either. In fact, although he has played euchre for the past five years, he knows very little about general principal at all. He's a hell of a poker player though and a good friend. I however, have been reading Euchre Universe regularly, so I'm good to go. Even if we are eliminated early (which I am going to do my best to avoid), we're going to enjoy getting out of town and playing euchre.
Thanks for the luck!

Some people are euchre players who drink, others are drinkers who play euchre. Sounds like your partner is the latter. Unless he's a tea-tottler and then there is no explanation.
