A euchre computer programming quiz

Harvy Lapp of Euchrelinks tipped the Euchre Universe off to this interesting euchre computer quiz. If you are interested in computer programming this one might be right up your alley. It's in a computer language that I don't know but maybe you'll know it.

I don't even sort my cards at all anymore, once I noticed one of my (very good) opponents staring at my hand as I was doing so, and then again as I played out each trick.

I'm assuming he was figuring out what suit I held where, and making an educated guess as to what I had left based on what part of my hand I pulled each card from.

Sorting cards is not a great idea against cagey euchre players as you've found out.

I know I use the trick you describe.

Especially if you move exactly one card after trump is named - you may as well yell out "Hey, in case you didn't notice, I've got the left!"
