Tips for winning at rummy:
- Get your priorities right and this means melding a pure run is important. Once you have this, you can start concentrating on other things.
- Be alert and observant about what other players are doing. What other players discard to and pick from the open cards pile will give you a good idea about their game. This way you always know the right card to retain or discard
- Always try and get rid of cards with higher points. This is to ensure that if an opponent makes a show before you do, your deadwood points are reduced.
- Remember a run can have more than 3 cards. This is a fact that many players do not know.
- Always look out for and gather smart cards. These are cards that can be easily melded into a run. For example, 7 of any suit can be put together with 5 & 6 of the same suit and can also work with 8 & 9 of the same suit.
- Jokers are important in the game of rummy and you need to focus on making the best use of jokers in your game. Always use the joker card to complete a run or set of higher points value. One more thing is to try and not use joker in a natural run.
- Waiting endlessly for a particular card to meld a run is not a wise thing to do. You need to constantly look at your cards and keep reevaluating them to make changes.
- When you are arranging your cards, do it in a way that makes it easy to play. One way to do that is to alternate the colors. This way you will not be confused when it comes to availing or discarding a card.
- Do not retain cards for too long. The smart thing to do is keep on discarding cards that are not being used as soon as possible especially if their points value is high.
Tricks for winning at rummy
We all know that winning at rummy is about developing the skills to play. The skills you require for playing Indian rummy online include the skill to evaluate your cards & use them to the best advantage and also being aware of what your opponents are up to. You can be sure that a good opponent will do the same thing. You can trick him/her/them by using some of the following tricks:
- While taking cards from the open pile for a sequence, you should be aware of the fact that you are leaving a clue for your opponent/s about your game. You can confuse them by throwing a card (that you may have two of) that is part of the sequence.
- You can also trick your opponent in to providing you with cards that you require. This can work when you are actually looking for a card to form a set. For instance, you are melding a set of three Jack Cards and you have Jack of Hearts & Clubs, then discarding a queen of Spades will confuse your opponent who may then discard a Jack of Spade, which is what you want! This process of misleading and getting your opponent to throw the card you want is called baiting and fishing.
