How to Play Euchre : Bidding Techniques in Euchre

Now we come over to here. Here’s a hand that
has next which is the other black suit, three connected cards, very good possibility of
scoring two tricks, can he get one trick out of his partner, so he decides to name clubs.
Pass, pass, and of course pass. He’s on the opening lead right? Now what he’s hoping is
that maybe his partner can trump a diamond for him. Why would he go ripping after the
trump? He’s got two losing diamonds. So when you talk about play of the hand, he’s going
to lead this, he’s going to lead this, he’s going to trump it, lo and behold a trick has
been produced. Now what he’s going to do is he’s going to cache either one of these off
suits, it really doesn’t matter, he’s going to try a spade and I, he took the diamond
yeah he trumped it, try a spade, and lo and behold things are really looking up aren’t
they, but he has the second ranking trump. You see that jack. That is the second ranking
trump in club so he takes the club, but now that this has been knocked out, the only card
that’s going to hurt him is the right jack or the right bower and that’s only going to
be one more trick and his side has made their bid. So that’s what I mean. When it goes pass,
pass, pass, and you have the opportunity to call the same color of the suit turned down,
call next, that’s the time to make the call. I’ve seen people call it on a lot thinner
hands. I’ve seen them call it on two trump. Extreme people, extreme people, extreme strategists
call it on one trump. Next is usually a good call. That’s the second round of an auction
after the card has been turned down.
