Playing card games, a sin?

It’s amusing how people have been falling for this trap for years. Aren’t there some elders in our families who antagonise card games? Don’t they scream with aghast when they see us playing any card games? Have you ever wondered why they have this visceral antipathy towards card games?

In case wondering what might be the reason behind associating card games with stigma, it is because the people critical of card games consider them as a vice, an embodiment of evil, name it as gambling.  Many people remain blinded by this belief that playing the card game is unethical and deem them as a gateway of bad omens. Unfortunately, this dim opinion about card games has been passed on for generations without having the slightest knowledge about the game.

To support their claim, they will cite some historical references like Mahabharata epic where gambling in a dice game resulted in a war that brought a catastrophe. While this might be true to some extent as far as gambling goes, does it sound sensible to equate all card games with gambling? And are dice games and card games one and the same?

There are quite a few card games like poker where gambling, betting takes the centre stage. But those are games where chance plays a bigger role superseding the skills. It can be postulated that games like Poker, Teenpatti are also skill based but practically you cannot undermine the role chance plays in such games.

Card games like Rummy are purely skill based. As we have mentioned many times, chance has nothing to do with rummy games. It is the strategies and tricks that you deploy during the course of the game, that determine your winning chances. You can even refer the Rummy tips collected from all rummy players in this blog. Unlike poker, where the rules are complex and tedious, rummy is fairly a simple game with straightforward rules. This is one of the main reasons why many players all over India choose online Rummy ahead of other card games.

We have also mentioned about the legality of playing online rummy games. If the game is illegal, we wouldn’t see players swarming many rummy sites in huge numbers to play. Rummy is similar to games like Chess, Puzzles, and Sudoku which helps to groom the intellect in us. The game finds its application in the learning arithmetic as well. A lot of factors like simple maths, probability, permutation, and combination come into play unknowingly. Just like other games where we see gripping contents, rummy can be as gripping and spellbinding when played between talented players.

  • Jokers are trump cards while playing rummy. Joker is an easy way to meld your cards into sets and sequences. It is considered as a jackpot in the game of Rummy.

rummy

Isn’t it an obvious fact that every sport has a winner and a loser? As expected, the winner goes through various emotions from ecstasy to tears of joy. Similarly, the losers experience varying emotions ranging from being distraught, angry to a deep sense of disappointment which disenfranchises them from playing the sport again. Pragmatically speaking, we must strike a balance to control our emotions. We must be cautious not to over-celebrate when we win – At the same time we must not drown in a pool of misery for our loss. Winning and losing is a part of any sport. Rummy is no exception to it. It is important to treat game as a game

We have seen some players frustrated and leave the game altogether after a few losses. This is the primary reason we keep emphasizing our new registrants to spend enough time at the practice tables before heading to cash games.

While we understand the pain of loss, players can draw solace from some of the benefits that they derive intrinsically by playing rummy.

Concentration

Your ability to remain focussed on the game will determine your chances of winning/losing. You will be surprised to note that your concentration level have increased drastically.

Decision-making skills

Rummy is a game where decision making plays a vital role. The decision to drop a card can eventually turn a course of the game. With sufficient practice, you would master the technique behind what cards to hold or what to discard.

On your toes

The game of Rummy involves lots of critical analysis and drawing patterns. You must be on your toes at every moment in the game. Lethargic attitude or any complacency would instantly cost you the game. You must carefully follow your opponent’s moves at every instance and think twice before discarding/picking up a card

Diligence

Rummy will teach you how to be diligent all the time. Ask any prolific rummy player their secret of success, the instant answer would be about how diligent they were.

Rummy is a fairly simple game but that doesn’t discount the fact it could make a dent in your pocket if played wildly. Like we mentioned, it is all in the player’s hands to play responsibly.

6 common mistakes made by Rummy Players

It is human nature to be prone to mistakes. Rummy is no exception to this. A few mistakes and strategy loopholes in the game will bring your party crashing down. We have observed a set of common mistakes rummy players make that we have listed here for your reference. Supreme Court has declared rummy as a legal card game so players can stop worrying about the consequences of playing card games.

Negligence of Discard Pile

This is the biggest mistake players keep making continuously, that causes them to lose. Before they start building castles in the air about victory, players must keep a watch on the discard pile. If your opponent is picking up cards you discard, then you must be double cautious not to drop any further cards which he might pick up. For this, you must be insightful about the cards your opponents are holding.

Overplaying the game

We see some of the players hopelessly slogging it out after being dealt an undesirable combination of cards. Rather than dropping the game early, we see those players persisting and waiting for the opponents to drop their dream card. While we appreciate players’ endurance and patience, players must understand that their probability of winning the game is very less if their opponents are successfully picking cards from the open deck. They must act proactively in such scenarios.

Failure to drop out

If your hand cards are hopelessly undesirable, then there is no point in persisting with the game. Dropping out of the game at the beginning would save you points. If you get hand cards with no possibilities of a set/sequence, no jokers or any connected cards then consider dropping out of the game early to avoid the embarrassment of losing with high points.

Heading to High stakes tables with minimal exposure

We have always been suggesting our players  play practice tables first and get properly acclimatized with the game play. The more you practice, the more chance you have to win games. Unfortunately, some players without sufficient practice under their belt head over to the high stakes games and lose miserably. As we have mentioned many times, we play host to a bastion of players with exceptional skills across the country. To compete with them, one must equip them self with sufficient skills to even stand a chance. Having said this, those who had followed our five effective Rummy Strategies have found themselves in a comfortable position.

Flimflam in Chat feature

We have always encouraged players to have normal chat regarding game play/strategies using our Interactive chat feature as Online Rummy has always been an interactive game. However, we see some players are carried away too much by this feature and are engaging in flimflam and personal flaming in the chat feature. Because of this even committed players get distracted and lose the game. We request the players to exercise restraint while using chat feature and avoid such meaningless banters.

Lack of Patience

Patience is a virtue. In fact, it is the mother of all virtues. You do not become a billionaire the very day you start a business. Online Rummy follows a similar pattern. It takes time to understand the game, absorb the intricate features, sufficient practice and a solid dedication to gain artistry in Rummy. Players who follow this hierarchy are immensely successful. Others get carried away by their emotions due to lack of patience and make mistakes which otherwise could have been avoided. Ask any Rummy stalwart, they will explain how their patience helped in conjunction with their efforts. Players who had been patient while playing rummy online have been rewarded well with wins
