Everyone wants to win and if you win your games with some style and applying some tricks, it acts like the cherry on the top. Most of us play card games with our friends and family members and we feel really bad if we loose and it makes our day if we win, so why not learn some rummy tips that might help you win some rummy games:
Rummy Trick 1 – Making pure sequences
The first thing a rummy player must focus upon is to make pure sequences. As per the common rummy rules, you should aim at making two sequences from which one should be pure sequence. This rummy trick helps you in minimizing the points that you get even if you loose. A related rummy tip or trick here is to use the Joker to make the second sequence.
Rummy Trick Tip 2 – Using more than three cards in a sequence
People think that they can only use three cards to make a sequence and have to make a set with four cards but a player can use more than three cards too to make a sequence (pure sequence or a sequence with a joker).
Rummy Trick Tip 3 – Discarding cards that carry high points
Cards like Jack, Queen, King and Ace carry the highest points and the trick here is to discard high points cards first so that even if you loose the game, you don’t get a lot of points. This rummy trick does not recommend you to just discard high point cards, the tip is to think carefully when discarding the high point or low point card/s. Also, if the opponent declares and you still have some idle high point cards and you also have a joker, use the joker to make the sequence with the high point cards to minimize the points.
Rummy Trick Tip 4 – Using Jokers Wisely
If you get a joker, just don’t fix the use of that joker i.e. keep thinking about different ways to use the joker/s because you would find that there are more than one way to use the joker. Also, as rummy rules need you to make at least two sequence, you can use the Joker to make one non-pure sequence too.
Rummy Trick Tip 5 – Keeping an eye on the cards of the opponent
This is one of the advanced rummy trick that players learn with experience but once learned, it will help you a lot. The tip here is to remember the card your opponent is discarding and the card that the opponent is picking. A player should always think twice before discarding because one should try and make sure that the opponent will not pick that card and thats the exact place where this rummy trick helps. For example, if the opponent has discarded 5 of hearts, it is likely that he will not pick a 6 or 4 of hearts so if you have 4 or 6 of hearts as the idle card, you can discard it safely as the chances that the opponent will pick that card are lesser (not zero). Also, if you discarded a 7 of spades and the opponent picked that card, it means that the opponent is either making a sequence of spades that has a 7 in it or a set of 7. Here, the trick is to remember the interest area of the opponent and not discard a nearby card and try to discard any other card.
The above mentioned rummy tricks and tips are not going to guarantee your win in each and every rummy game but when you apply these tricks while playing rummy, you soon will realize that the number of games that you win has gone up. So, what else do you need 😉
