Trump Busters #1

Updated: Feb 26, 2019

What's shaking you euchre nuts? I got this crazy idea to do a weekly euchre puzzle to get a continuing conversation going on what you'd do, what you wouldn't dare do, what you think others might do, and embarrass them for doing so! Each week, we'll put up a new scenario with different questions given a scenario; I call it, Trump Busters!

The Scenario

Player 4 just dealt and passes the bid to you. You are holding the card seen on screen first to bid. Score is 2-0 with your team in the lead after two successful trump calls (netting you 2 points across 2 hands). Assume that this is standard progressive style play (best of 8 hands, 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 Thursday starting at 11am!
