Spring Euchre Tournament

The last tournament was a great success, so we'll follow the same format in our spring tournament. Entry fee is $10, of which $2.50 or so will go to cover the fee for the private party room at the Lab -- the rest is prize money. Come at 1pm to check in (and order food, if you plan to do so) -- play will start promptly at 1:30pm.

    Had 19 players - 1st Place - Nic. 2nd Place - Catie. 3rd Place - Betty. 4th place Tie - Tammy & Duane. We used the private room - it was much better than the general room!

    Thanks to Lisa and Duane for organizing this one!

    (continued) Buy-in: $10 per head. Prize money is dependent on the number of players and the size of the pot after the room fee is paid. We anticipate the room fee will be about $2.50 per head. We will have a "tip jar" if anyone wants to contribute more toward the room fee.

    1st Place - 40% of the remaining pot; 2nd Place - 30%; 3rd Place - 20%; 4th Place - 10%

    (continued): Everyone will play 6 "games" consisting of 8 hands. Anyone who sits out a game because of a non-multiple of 4 players, will receive 7 points in that game. Games do not "end" if a team reaches 10 points - rather, play all 8 hands, and record all the points. We will try to keep a running scoresheet. The winner of the tourney is the player who totals the most points. If there are ties, the prize money will be split between the tied players. Tournament Start time will still be 1PM. Latecomers will be dealt with at my discretion; call my cell # if you have RSVP'd and will be delayed. At this time, I do not plan to add anyone who arrives after 1PM. (So... be EARLY!) If a player starts the tournament, but must depart before the tournament ends, he will not accrue any points after his departure.

    Timewise, we should finish in about 3 hours. (continued in the next post)

    For those who don't remember how the last tournament ran, here are the instructions again: Initial partners are chosen by lot. After each 8-deal game, all players record the quantity of points their partnership won. Winners of the game stay at their table. Losers of each game walk (move to the next table). If a game is tied, then the team that advances is chosen by lot. Partners switch on each subsequent game. If there is a table with less than 4 players, they sit out that game (but get credit for 7 points as detailed below), then: - If 1 player, he/she advances to the next table for the subsequent game, along with one of the losers from the previous table, chosen by lot.

    - If 2 players, they advance to the next table, and switch to play with another partner in the next game.

    - If 3 players, two players chosen by lot advance to the next table for the next game, and switch to play with another partner in the next game. (continued in the next post)

    I'm bummed to be missing this, but have an all-day seminar on Saturday. Thanks to Duane for stepping in to the organizer role!

    Hey Euchre-ites! Talk it up! Need more players!! The private room fee needs to be covered, which reduces the prize pot, so the more players, the better! Bring guests to play too!

      Good thing you are getting certified. We discourage playing Euchre in open water without a certification.
