No poker, just Euchre
I'm currently sitting in a Caribou coffee, going on hour number 2, trying to get through the 500 and change emails that accumulated over my 2 week vacation. The vacation was lovely, and I didn't work much at all, except last Friday, and that was brainless spreadsheet work, which isn't bad at all.

Yesterday, I walked the dog, and sat on my duff to watch the US Open - the Agassi and Blake matches were fantastic, and I'm rooting for Mary Pierce to get far in the bracket, too. I then took some time off to play Canasta and Euchre on Yahoo games, where it is officially proven that I SUCK at both of them - either that or I'm card dead. I even pulled CJ into the fray and made him partner with me for Euchre, and we only won about 4 times out of 11. Online euchre is SO RIGGED, I tell you.

However, I lost less money this way, tell you what.

But this has gotten me thinking. I think we need an online Euchre night. Who's in?

Ugh, I've found I'm tnot that great of a player, so you should look on play.yahoo.com and find the instructions, or get the scoop from CJ or Drizz...

Me and CJ will be dishing out euchre lessons to all :)

No more PLO8 while playing euchre though. That DID cost me money :P

Euchre and Backgammon??

My attraction into poker was that I love card games. I've always been a card player, but not much of a gambler. Money is just how you keep score in poker.
I can play Bridge, although there is no one my age around who plays. I haven't ever played euchre, but it looks like Bridge with a short deck and a crazy Jack wild card sort of rule.

SPEAKING OF OTHER GAMES, are any of you poker-bloggers playing online backgammon for money? I've been think about putting a little cash that direction. I've been good at that game since I was three, and would like some input on sites.

Re: Euchre and Backgammon??

I'm horrible about backgammon :D I hear games grid is good.

And I have no idea on how to play bridge, but dad and stepmother play it competitively.
