Rummy Tips/Strategies/Tricks


Following are some really useful tips that you can implement while playing in an Online Rummy Tournament or a Rummy Practice Game. These tips can sometimes work as strategies that can help you to beat your opponent.

Grab the Strategy

In rummy, planning your strategy starts with how you arrange your cards, and what type of hand you have, rather than picking up the first card. The sooner you realize this, the better it is. Also, understand the strategic value of different cards in the deck. For example, middle cards can be more valuable than low or high point cards. A '5' is strategically more valuable than an 'Ace' since it can be used in more combinations. For e.g. an 'Ace' can only make a run with 2-3 or Q-K while a '5' can make a run with 3-44-6 or 6-7.


Position your cards in order

While positioning your cards in the beginning of a rummy game, follow this structure:

1. The possible melds.

2. The likely combinations (2 or 3 cards of the same suit in sequence).

3. The unmatched cards according to suits.

You should group your two-way combinations in a way which is cleary visible to you so that you can make the right choices.


Value your Joker

There are many ways to use the Joker/s in a Rummy game. So, if you have one, think about different ways to use it. Also, in rummy you can use your Joker/s to make one or more non-pure sequence as well.



Decode your Opponent's Moves

In a rummy game, it is very important to keep a watchful eye on the cards that your opponent is picking and not picking. This way you won't discard the card/s that your opponent is looking for. For example, while playing rummy,  think twice, before discarding '3 of Spades' if your opponent picked a nearby card i.e. 2 or 4 of spades because chances are that your opponent will pick it. But if your opponent has discarded a card near to 3 of spades then there are less chances of him picking your discarded card.


Reduce your Points

While playing rummy, always try to ensure that with your every move you lessen your total points by discarding the cards with higher points first. Having said that, you should not discard a card just because it is a high point card but you should also check whether your discarded card could be required by your opponent, if so, choose a different card. Doing this can increase your chances of winning the Rummy game.

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of "de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum" (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..", comes from a line in section 1.10.32.
