Wild West Euchre Fest- Progressive Event

Host Hotel, Special Rates ($89/night) enter code EUC

Hampton Inn Phoenix Airport North 601 North 44th Street Phoenix, AZ 85008 p. [masked] f. [masked] 

Tournament starts at 6:30 p.m. Sharp

Play with a different partner each round

12 Rounds of 8 hands each

The winner is determined by total score at the end 


To determine the first deal of the game, cards will be dealt face up until a player receives any Jack. That player then becomes the dealer; from there, the deal rotates clockwise each hand. Cards must be properly shuffled. The deck is then offered for a "cut" to the player seated to the RIGHT. A cut card is provided and must be used to cover the bottom card of the deck during dealing. Cards may be dealt in groups of 2's and 3', or 1 at a time. It is always Dealer's choice as to the preference of deal style; however, that person's deal style must be maintained during the round.  If four passes occur, a second round of bidding commences. If the second deal is passed by everyone else then the "Stick the Dealer" rule does apply! The turned down card is placed face down on the kitty. COUNT YOUR CARDS! Misdeals are re-dealt. Bidding starts with the Eldest hand (left of the dealer), after the dealing has ended.


The ONLY LANGUAGE which is allowed during the bidding is: "PASS", "PICK IT UP", or ALONE. The bidder may not use descriptive phrases that give clues such as "Let's try clubs", "I think I can", and so on. A warning is given (for the first time), and then for subsequent offenses, the offending team loses its right to bid and the non offending team is awarded two points. On 2nd round bidding, the bidder must state their intentions by saying the name of the suit or "NEXT" (The turned down suit cannot be called). Another player may request (order) the dealer to pick up the up card with any holding. A "NATURAL TRUMP" is NOT required. The dealer's partner may tell his partner to "Pick it up" and will NOT be required to go alone.


A team declaring a Loner must clearly state this intention by saying "ALONE", "I'm going alone" or "Stay Home". Please do not use phrases such as "I'm trying it", or "Sit this one out, partner", "It's all mine," etc. When a player declares a Loner, his/her partner MUST drop their hand, face down on the table, in the MIDDLE position, (not to their left or right side). The partner is not allowed to look at the kitty during a loner attempt. 

"Defensive loners" (bidding a Loner of your own against the opponents' Loner) are NOT allowed.


Cards are NOT to be tossed to the middle of the table!! Instead, each player makes their play by placing a card in front of them on the table. ( Form a " square ") Then each person pushes their card to the winner of each trick. The person winning the trick neatly puts it face down in their area. The person that takes the trick must retrieve the trick and store it in front of them. DO NOT push a trick that you have taken to your partner for storage so the tricks will be all together. Each player must rake in their own trick! This must be done to enable the director to prove a renege! (The trick in front of you will be evidence to what suite you trumped)

If a team member bids alone, his partner may retrieve the tricks.

TRAMMING (claiming multiple winning cards in your hand at once) is NOT allowed! Cards must be played completely out!

A card laid is a card played


You cannot ask "What is Trump"? The dealer will have a trump cube, and once trump is named by anyone, the dealer will discard and turn the cube to the appropriate suit and place it on top of the kitty. When the hand is over, the cube is then passed to the next dealer.


* If the bidding team takes at least 3 tricks in a hand they shall receive 1 point.

* If the bidding team takes all 5 tricks they will receive 2 points.

* If one team member goes alone and takes all 5 tricks, that team shall receive 4 points

* In an  individual's  (progressive)  event, the person making the lone get 5 points and his partner gets 4. A total of 8 hands are played with everyone dealing twice.

* If a team member goes alone and takes 3 or 4 tricks, that team shall receive 1 point.

* If bidding team fails to take 3 tricks (Euchred) the opposing team receives 2 points.

* The first team reaching a score of 10 points wins. A total of 13 points per game is possible.


DO NOT make your own Rulings! Please call the Tournament Director (TD)

RENEGE: - There are no exceptions to the Ruling for a Renege! Loss of bid and the non offending team is awarded two points.

RENEGE AGAINST a LONER: - the side which declares the loner, will score four points. If the declaring team reneges, the non offending team is awarded two points.

BID OUT OF TURN: - Loss of bid and the non offending team is awarded two points. The non offending team may void the out of turn bid and play alone if they wish, but do so at their teams risk.

LEAD OUT OF TURN: - Loss of bid and the non offending team is awarded two points. (4 points if on a lone call)

    This was a lot of fun and a great tournament. I am happy I was part of it. I agree that maybe going to 8 games, at least on the second day when there are additional rounds to be played after the main event, may be an option to consider. I'm not sure if there is a way to keep it moving so that tables with slower players don't back-up multiple groups...but just food for thought. Thanks Keri and thanks Bobby, my new Las Vegas bud. It was great.

    I think..... leave it at 12 games. After a few clunker games, I was looking forward to making up for lost ground with more games. (It didn't happen!) We are only part of the big picture with four other Euchre events. They all play 12 games. Keep things uniform. I would like to see the table rotation order change.... specifically, in the progressive singles event. Several times I ended up with the same people through the event. On one occasion one of the players had played with the other three folks at the table. Several players commented, "I have had the same person at my table for four games." Keri, kudos for your efforts which resulted in a very pleasant day for all of us.

      I agree with Kurt. Instead of the losers both going north, one could go north, one could go south.

    I think we should play 20 rounds next time, we really were just getting warmed up by round 11. I think we would of took it all if we kept playing.

    Had a great time last Friday! Never played in a tournament so next time I would fly in a day early to be all rested up!! Keri, great job! Charles, thanks for the help explaining the tournament rules. I'm on the waiting list to play this Sunday and my friend Joyce just got here yesterday so she is also going to go on the waiting list to play! Hopefully it works out that we are able to!!! It was nice meeting everyone and hope to see some of you on Sunday!!

    Keri, you (and your helpers) did a great job as always. I agree with Cheryl that something less than 12 rounds would be ideal for the next big tournament.

    February 24, 2014

  • Cheryl P.

    Needs to be a bit shorter next time. 8 rounds instead of 12.
