What we're about

This is a fun group of Euchre Players who've come together and are having a great time playing cards in the Tap Room at Pinellas Ale Works (https://www.pawbeer.com/on-tap-now/) every 2nd and 4th Tuesday evening at 6:45 p.m.!

EUCHRE TOURNAMENT CONCEPT
Each euchre player will score with a partner each of 5 rounds or games (8 hands or deals to a game with each player dealing twice), partners change after each game. The tournament is not played as teams, given changing partners but scores are kept individually by each player. Individual score sheets are provided. Along with each deal or game score, please note partner's name for each round in the space provided on the score sheet. Score sheets are turned in at the end of the tournament. It's actually super easy to use these score sheets. If you have any questions about scoring, please ask one of the other players or organizers. When you sign up on site, you are assigned a roster number. This number determines what table you start at (table #1=1-4, #2 5-8, etc.) and also who your partner will be... Odds vs. Evens.

We play standard Euchre and trick bidding to include "stick the dealer". If the number of players dictates use of a Ghost Player, the Ghost Player's partner AND opponents for that round get a minimum of 7 points (they can earn more, but at least get the 7). Likewise, if the number of players dictates that players must sit out, those sitting out will be awarded 7 points for that round. Who sits out is determined by who arrives last or gets rostered last (please please please continue to use the meetup site to sign up and also to cancel if your plans change as it really makes planning each evening go a little bit easier).

$3 entrance fee plus $0.25 euchre fine... $2.60 of the $3 goes to prize money for high score winners while $0.40 goes to cover cost of playing cards, score sheet materials, and meetup site fees. Euchre fines will be awarded based on a random drawing each night. The players roster number will be the number they should be rooting for on that draw. On average, each player ends up spending $4-$5 per evening.
Loner bag - Each time a Euchre Player goes alone (a loner), they put $1 in the loner bag. If they make the loner, they take possession of the loner bag. Whoever has possession of the loner bag at the end of the evening keeps the loner bag contents! Final possession is based on last deal or hand played. For instance, if two players score successful loners on the last deal or hand of their respective final round or game, then they would split the loner bag. The later deal or hand takes precedent over an earlier hand or deal, but no same hand or deal as noted on the score sheet takes precedent over another. This ensures that no player is penalized for faster play nor any advantage is given for slow play. You don't have to pay $1 when going a loner, but you can't take possession of the loner bag unless you pay throughout the evening for each loner attempted at the time the loner was called.

Scores tallied, winners announced, and cash prizes awarded in accordance with how many Euchre players played that evening:
6 or fewer players Winner take all - 100%

7-10 players 1st place - 60%, 2nd place - 40%

11-14 players 1st place - 50%, 2nd place - 30%, 3rd place - 20%

15 or more players 1st place - 50%, 2nd place - 25%, 3rd place - 15%, 4th place - 10%

Low score gets $2.50 back.

Except the $0.40 per player administration fee, ALL monies collected for entrance fees, loner bag, and Euchre fines are awarded back to the players.

All Euchre fine money will be awarded in a random drawing held each night. Your player number for that night will be the number you'll be rooting for on that drawing.
Join this group and come out and play Euchre with us on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday night of each month, 6:45 p.m. at Pinellas Ale Works!

PS... If you've previously signed up to play but your situation changes, please use the meetup site to cancel. Persistent "No shows" will be removed from the group.
