Re: New poll for EuchreScience
I learned this from teaming up with Patricia recently online which she heard from Julie who heard it from an Australian euchre champ. In the past I have always led the 9 (trump) to my 3rd chair partner, 2nd round, caller. MOST of the time a point is made and SOME times euchred. In most cases a call from 3rd chair in the 2nd round is a sign that power is disstributed more evenly. With a lead of trump, there goes two trump for one trick. I have noticed from my own experience if my 1st chair partner DOES NOT lead trump to me, a point is surprisingly made. If you decide to try leading away from trump on a 2nd round, 3rd chair call I think you will find yourself:
1. making a point more often.
2. not getting euchred as much
3. being able to make thinner calls from 3rd chair
Try it , I think you'll like.
p.s. Thank you Patricia, Julie and Aussie euchre champ!
