Farmer’s Hand

If a player is dealt a hand which contains three nines or three tens, that play may call out “Farmer’s Hand.” That player is then allowed to show the three cards in question and exchange them for the three unexposed cards in the kitty.  If more than one player calls out Farmer’s Hand then the hand is declared a misdeal.

The purpose of this variation is ensure a fair deal.  Many euchre enthusiasts do not endorse this variation, because it takes away from the game.  It is still used as a major deterrent for stacking of the deck and other card cheats.
