EXPERIENCE IS THE KEY

Experience matters, especially when playing Euchre card game. Most Euchre strategies come naturally as you become more and more familiar with the game. The more you play the more you know when to bid, when to pass, and how the players around you will respond in different situations. Experience goes a very long way.

LEADING TRUMP TO YOUR MAKER PARTNER

If your partner is the maker, and you don’t have any off-suit Aces, lead with a trump. This draws trumps away from your opponents, and chances are your partner will catch the trick.

DON’T BE AFRAID TO MAKE THE BID

Every game comes with a risk. The same goes to Euchre too. If you are passing too much you maybe missing lots of chances to score a point. If you have nice cards bear in mind that your partner can have your trump colour card too and count on him scoring a point for you and never ever be afraid to be euchred. After all you cannot call yourself a real Euchre player if you have never been euchred in a game!

IF THE ODDS ARE RIGHT RISK GOING ALONE

Remember that going alone has no real advantage unless you have a good chance to make five tricks on your own. Otherwise, you are only risking of getting penalty points. But if you have three trump cards the chances of going alone grow and you must ponder whether your remaining cards give you a chance for a win. Going alone is a reasonable risk if you are behind and you are trying to catch up with the leader.

PLAY HONEST

Euchre is a fast-paced card game and cheating can happen in many ways. Our advice is not to get tempted and remember to respect your partner and opponents.
