Hearts, Alone

For the first time ever in my Euchre career, I went "alone" on Saturday night. We played cards with some of Tim's friends that night, and on the last hand of the night (my deal, coincidentally) I had the most amazing hand I have ever had. I had both red jacks and the ace of hearts. The card waiting to be picked up was the king of hearts. It came to me to decide what trump was, so I nonchalantly up the card - and Tim looked frightened. I looked over at his friend Scott (still don't have great Euchre confidence) and said, I can go alone on this, right? He answered in the affirmative - I pointed to the ace, he again affirmed my call - I put that bad boy down, brought out both the big boys and finished everyone off with the king. I was right proud of myself, even if Scott did have to help me.

I don't think I've heard about Euchre since I left Ohio!! I was never confident either and usually ended up watching TV when everyone else played!

I think I am the only person from Ohio that has NEVER played. I am such a wimp I don't want to learn because I don't think I would be good at it (great attitude). Great job Nicole-keep that confidence up, pretty soon they won't invite you because you will be kicking all their butts at the table!!
