Have you ever had or seen a perfect hand dealt in a game of cards? In Euchre it’s called a “Lay-Down Loner,” as you have such a powerful hand that you can not only have your partner sit that round out, but just drop your cards right on the table and take the entire hand.
But Euchre plays with a short deck, with only the nines and above, you only get five cards per hand (with four discarded) and the trump suit changes from hand to hand. It’s a quick game, and the rapid turn of the cards means that you will likely see a perfect Loner in any best-of-three evening (usually when you’re holding the right cards for the wrong trump). The more cards in play for any given game, the less likely you will ever see that perfect hand.More
