I know how to play hearts and euchre... I wanted to learn bridge for a while.. it was pretty funny when my buddy and I went to a bridge club one night and it was all oldies there, which is pretty much what we were expecting, but it was still funny

delos -> in euchre and in 500 you've got trump and following suit and strategy like that (well, not euchre... in euchre you only get 5 cards, very little possibility. in 500 you get 10 cards, in bridge you get 13).
I know the basics of bridge, and I'm reading through a book that goes over the rules. So far the only confusing thing to me is doubling and redoubling.
If i bid 2 spades, then that means I've got a good spade hand. Then, defenders (other team) are the ones who bid to double it right? That would mean, if they do, that they (or one of them) has a good spade hand too? And then my partner can redouble, which means he TOO has a good spade hand (or probably lots of aces and runs of another suit). Is that right? defenders can bid to double, partner can bid to redouble? Also, if that happens, (i bid 2 spades, defender double, partner redoubles) who makes the contract? me or my partner? I think it's me, am i right?
Anywho, I'll have you a game in a bit

You looking for an ass kicking
I've played well over 5000 games of euchre, possible over 7000. I am at the point where there is nothing left to learn about the game, all I need is a partner which plays the same way and w00t.
yes no no (to the title question)
Heh you just try it. Ive bin playing euchre since i was 5. No joke, ill play ya some time.

I think i have another question. Can't remember it right now though.. :think:oh right! vulnerability. The book that I have explained it horribly! Can someone plz explain when you are vulnerable and when you aren't vulnerable?

vulnerablility just changes the scoring a bit... vulnerability is assigned to a team that has just one a game and the other team is not vulnerable. when your vulnerable and you make whatever you bid then you get more points and if you dont make, then your opponents get extra points... i forgot exacly how the scoring changes but check this link, it has all the scoring for rubber style bridge:
