Discard the 9. You still have a royal flush.
@PoliticalOtters, I believe the point of the joke is how he was mere inches from losing an incredible hand, but thankfully missed it by a hair.
@The Pun Shielder, I get it now
@PoliticalOtters, in reading the title it seems like this is a euchre joke. That's all I can offer for understanding the joke as I forget how to play euchre.
@Yung Saltine Cracker, ohhh I thought it was spades and he wouldn’t some joe be able to pull all the points.. yeah k I don’t get it
Diamonds was chosen as trump, and the only trump card this guy had was the lowest(9♦️) trump card, which he was forced to pick up due to him being the dealer in this round. In essence, he is not going to get any tricks, therefore his partner and him will not get any points this hand. Unless his partner has the big, which is unlikely.
