Trump Buster #6

You thought it was dead? Well back from the grave is Trump Buster, The Euchre-ist League’s weekly euchre puzzle series to exercise that keen trick-taking brain of yours. Here’s the first of many to come in season II!

The Scenario

North player has just dealt and bidding rotation comes to you on the first round. You are holding the cards shown in the south seat. Score is 0 to 3 in the opponent’s favor. Assume this is standard progressive style play (best of 8 hands, or whoever reaches 10 first). This is hand 3.

The Question

1) Do you call trump in the first round of bidding?

2) Second round of bidding goes around and comes back to you. Do you call trump or pass? If you call trump, what would you call?

We want to hear what you think! Get the discussion going on below in the comment section, or if you would like, call into Talk Table, the official podcast of the Euchre-ist League, live every week sporadically!
