What pays better in Online rummy?

While playing online rummy everyone has their own theory for success; some say it is the sheer brilliance of the players while others insist the quality of diligence as the most important factors that are going to help you forge ahead. While both points seem to have their merits, what is the quality that you feel is the most important among these two?

For this, we need to analyze the merits of being a brilliant player and compare it with the one who can be best described as an assiduous player in online rummy;

Quality of Being Brilliant

  1. Updated with the rules – Getting updated with the rules is the basic tenet of achieving expertise in any game that you play. Only then you would know about the challenges that are going to come in your way and would know how to tackle them.
  2. Skills – As rummy is a skill based game, it is important that you pick up all the skills and strategies as fast as you can. A brilliant rummy player would be acclimatized with the rules and would learn all the skills and strategies within a few days after his first game. Rummy is all about knowing the right combinations to win; a brilliant player would try different combinations and win in a novel way each game.
  3. Knowledge – By knowledge, we don’t mean only the knowledge about the game and its strategies; it means a thorough understanding of the site hosting the game including the technical aspects involved in it. A brilliant rummy player’s relationship with a rummy site not just ends with their tables but extends way beyond it. He knows very well about the technicalities (software) involved in the game, updates himself constantly about any changes in the rules, and has a thorough knowledge of the existing offers and promotions. He would also be aware of all the factors that could affect his gameplay.

Virtue of Endurance

  1. Never give up – As we have mentioned many times, wins and losses are part of a rummy game. A diligent player is undeterred by losses and keeps playing regardless of the outcome. This quality of enduring any defeat sets them apart from the rest by a mile. Surprisingly, these are the players who are more likely to win prizes from random draws as they are almost there every time.
  2. Passion & Zeal – A resilient rummy player would never lose enthusiasm and zeal in the game despite enduring losses. They somehow motivate themselves and derive passion to stick on. Most rummy sites consider this kind of players as their pillars of strength. Some might derisively call them as sloggers, but slogging is not bad while playing online rummy.
  3. Lively – A persistent player is often lively and keeps the fellow players at the table in splits with his humour sense. As he visits the site often, he would have made lots of friends so for players like them, a rummy table is a virtual home away from a home.

When you delve deep and review about the quality of being brilliant and resilient, it is not surprising to note that a player needs to have both of it in ample amounts in order to succeed. A resilient player will be unperturbed by the losses and would be playing it and over the course of time, he will master all the rummy moves and strategies and become a brilliant rummy player. So are you ready to be persistent and become brilliant?

Similarities between Rummy variants & Cricket

Cricket and rummy are the two most popular games in the Indian subcontinent. People go extremely crazy about both of these games. More than being just a game, Cricket is now considered as a religion in India. It is not unusual to see players worshipped as demigods and fans indulging in wild practices like tonsuring their heads as a wish for their dear players to succeed. Similarly, rummy games have delved deep into our families with the game being played on all festive occasions or even during family get-togethers.

History

Cricket is a game created during Saxon or Norman times by children living in the Weald of southeast England that lies across Kent and Sussex. Experts believe cricket originated from the game called bowls, where the batsman has to stop the ball from reaching its target by hitting it away. Some believe cricket as an extension of the ancient Indian game Gilli Danda with origins over 2500 years ago. It is a game that is played with two sticks: a large one called a danda, which is used to hit a smaller one, the gilli. Experts call it as a precursor to the modern day games like cricket, baseball, and softball.

There are many theories surrounding the origins of rummy. Some widely discussed origins of rummy are from Conquian, Egyptian, Chinese, American and Hungarian. However, in reality, there has been a common consensus that the modern day rules are an amalgamation of various forms of rummy games.

The Game

Cricket involves two teams with 11 players on each side where the objective is to win the match either by defending the total you have scored or by either chasing the target posed by the opponent team. Rummy is a card game often played with two or more decks, in which the players try to form sets and sequences of cards. The main objective of the game is to arrange all the 13 cards dealt into sets or sequences. In order to win, you must have at least 2 sequences out of which one must be a pure sequence (without including joker) and the remaining cards must be arranged in sets or sequences.

Similarities

Both these games have lots of similarities than one can imagine. Modern day Cricket has 3 formats of the game such as T20, ODI and Test matches. Similarly Modern day Rummy has 3 popular formats: Points rummy, pool rummy and Deals Rummy.

In T20 format, each innings lasts for only 20 overs. In this format both the teams play aggressively by either piling up a big total or shooting their opponents out for a paltry total. This is considered as the fastest form of modern day cricket and is also considered as the most preferred form of cricket these days. The growing number of premier leagues and the huge prize money for them are an ample indication of its wide reach.

Points Rummy is the fastest form of Indian Rummy and it offers a good chance to win lots of money. Points rummy games are games in which the monetary value associated with each point is preset at the beginning. Just like T20, this remains as the most preferred rummy variant by the online rummy players due to the fast nature of the game. There are many points rummy games that get over at a blink of an eye especially when the players are dealt good starting hand. Jokers in this variant can be considered as an equivalent to a power play in cricket, which gives the batsman a license to go for the carnage.

The ODI format in cricket can be compared with Deals rummy as the timeframe is limited in each format. Each team is given 50 overs to play in which they try to outplay their opponents by restricting/chasing the target. In Deals rummy, the number of deals (game rounds) is preset at the beginning. The player with the least number of points at the end of all the deals is the winner of the game. The idea behind both the games is to restrict your opponents. After the advent of the much more faster and engaging T20, ODIs have lost some sheen. There are many cricketers who are abandoning their international cricketing career just to be part of the lucrative T20 leagues that are conducted around the world. Similarly, most people prefer to play the faster version of online rummy ie Points rummy when compared to Deals rummy.

Pool Rummy is best matched with Test match format of Cricket. Test match is often termed as a test of endurance for the cricket players. They will have to toil hard in the scorching heat for 5 days at a minimum of 90 overs per day. The two teams of 11 players play a four-innings match, which may last up to 5 days. The gruelling battle that happens over 5 days is a test of team’s playing ability and survival instincts. Though T20s and ODIs have overshadowed it in the recent past, Purists still prefer test cricket and consider it as an ideal form of cricket.

Pool rummy is an exciting variant where the upper limit (101/201) for the points is preset at the beginning. Unlike Deals/Points rummy, pool rummy goes on for an infinite number of rounds. Similar to test matches where you have a chance to win even though you performed badly in the first innings, pool rummy presents you an excellent opportunity to make amends for the earlier mistakes that you could have done. For example, when you have dealt a bad starting hand while playing deals/points rummy you don’t have any other option other than to drop out from the game whereas in pool rummy you can strut around while waiting for the perfect hand. Just like the second innings during a test match provides an opportunity to regain momentum and take control, subsequent rounds in pool rummy helps you to regain momentum provided you are strong in rummy strategies.

These similarities have revealed that cricket and Rummy have deeper connections between them. The truth is it cricket or rummy, skill holds the key to succeeding.

Ways by Which You Can Avoid Losing in Rummy

Wins and losses are a part and parcel of every skill based game. When you are playing a skill game like rummy, your chances of losing the game is almost equal to your chances of winning. Let’s get this straight, you cannot avoid losses while playing rummy, it is inevitable. You cannot expect the lady luck to smile upon you whenever you are playing online rummy.  There are days where you might be on a losing spree.

You may get frustrated by these losses and think about quitting playing rummy altogether. Don’t get bogged down! We have come up with some suggestions that you can follow when you are losing continuously.

Keep a check on your points constantly

Rummy is all about keeping your points at a minimum. You will have to calculate the points constantly even when you are playing. If you don’t seem to get a pure sequence, chances are that you will end up with a lot of points. So on such occasions, the best option would be to drop the game.

Many people commit the fallacy of continuing the game despite having a very bad hand and hope they can turn it into a good hand in the subsequent rounds. It often goes from bad to worse and they end up with lots of points. On hindsight, they feel they should have dropped out of the game earlier. So it’s better to analyze your hands properly and predict your chances before taking the decision of continuing to play. This applies even if you have jokers in your hand.

Applying the same strategy in every variation/type of game

You have to play each variation of rummy with a different strategy. The strategy employed while playing points rummy (which is the fastest version of rummy) might not be suitable for a variant like pool rummy that allows you to take lots of risks. Even if you are dealt a terrible hand in a game like Pool rummy, you can strut around experimenting with your cards waiting for the right hand to make your sequences/sets. There is a chance to turn the tables on as the game goes on for an infinite number of deals. On the other hand, it becomes important to play safe when you are playing Deals/Points rummy as you could end up with a lot of points as the game ends sooner. So, it is generally advised to drop the game if you get bad hands.

Playing against a professional

You may lose a lot of games while playing with a particular player and it is possible that this player is a pro in online rummy. You may observe this by the strategy he deploys in each and every game ie taking a lot of time to make his move, and not dropping the cards you require.  It is imperative that you mark that player out and avoid the table he is in until you have scaled up to his level. A loss in any game hurts; we are not going to deny that.  But there is no point in seeking revenge against that particular player when you’re not up to his level.

Playing with a distraction

Let us know if you are doing any of the following activities while playing online rummy; do you listen to music? Do you open multiple tabs and flippantly browse? do you munch snacks while playing? If you are doing any of the above, chances are that you might end up losing even if you’re good with strategies. Rummy games require utmost concentration more than anything. It is advised to refrain from multitasking when you are playing online rummy.

It is not easy to always win a game continuously. There are times when things slip out of our hands and it’s important to stay unflustered. Strategy holds the key whenever you are playing a rummy game. You will get to know different hands and different combinations once you play the game for a long duration.

It’s important you consider the above-mentioned points and see to it that these activities do not hamper your winning streak while playing in an online rummy site. Feel free to let us know of any other possible reasons that could impede your progress.

Easy to Use

Let’s get this straight, console games aren’t everyone’s cup of tea. If you’re a beginner, you will be in no man’s land when you play a console game, as the complex game mechanics and advanced graphics would prove to be too overwhelming. On the other hand, there are many mobile games that could be played without any prior gaming experience. They are much easier to use and accessible for all players.
