Re: New poll for EuchreScience - Rules

- Robin, I'm sorry for not replying sooner, been busy. The question in the poll was.Down 8-7, 10D upcard, sitting in 2nd chair, holding JD JH 9H KC JC. What do you do?The upcard was the 10D not the QD, as you posted. Don't know if that makes a difference.You replied in your initial post with: "Order, score a point, and lose the game the majority of the time!" And, "Bottom line here is you will lose the game the majority of the time by ordering the dealer. "When I read your reply I assumed "majority of the time" was more than the stats actually say. It is a majority of the time. I was thinking larger numbers.I retrieved Freds probability chart https://xa.yimg.com/df/EuchreScience/probability_of_winning_the_game.doc?token=UPgZb7qsxLoTjnqLZZHPspO9YgnsT1uDl0PZjj38Qj5FqE7pZ3P85IBWmmjyK4x-LEphP7u0SsItjhvOyfTcRZ-kyyeg5Y4nHbNlV1tnLGfV5DJyZBeagW4NiC9A4i0z37eWDNgHeRLP-X93CpZncSG5lBDs-EOVtoA&type=download.and went from there.I have asked the fellow who does not order from second with both same colored bowers as the upcard to explain in some form of his strategy. His only reply was/is, as I stated before is "I didn't have anything to with them." I will be watching tho.Monday we were tied 9-9 and I picked up the KD to go with the AD, three suited, no off suit aces and we got set and lost. I then replied "I figured you with both bowers." We laughed and gave high fives. : )Sorry Robin.Todd
