The Game Of Rummy Broken Down Into Understandable Parts(part 3)-aapt.exe

In the earlier parts of this article we studied the basics of the game of rummy. These covered what is a set, a sequence and the calculation of scores. Here is a small synopsis of the earlier parts. A deck of cards has 13 cards of 4 suites Hearts, Spades, Diamonds and Clubs The cards start from Ace,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,Jack, Queen and King One printed joker is also part of the deck Another joker is nominated on a random basis at the start of the game The game starts with 13 cards being distributed to all players Scores are calculated as follows: All numbered cards carry points equal to the number printed on them Ace, Jack, Queen and King each have 10 points Printed Joker as well as other joker cards carry no points. In this chapter we will address the proper way of melding Sequences and Sets. Sequences: In Indian rummy sequences or runs are a series of three or more cards that are in a chronological order. The formation of one natural or jokerless run is vital in the game of rummy. When the cards are dealt, you need to arrange them as per their suites for the game to proceed smoothly. This way you will be able to discern if you already have a natural sequence. You will also be able to identify Joker cards and should tuck them away conveniently. You can typically arrange the cards in the following manner: 1)Joker cards 2)Natural run or sequence if any 3)Cards that have potential for being melded to sequences. In case you already have a natural sequence then you can use the joker cards to .plete the potential sequences which have higher points, first. 4).pleted sets and/or potential sets. In case you have already melded the two mandatory sequences (one natural) you can use joker cards to finish up sets 5)Deadwood cards in the order, which you would like to discard them. This means the deadwood cards with higher points should be thrown away first, unless you know that the player sitting next to you will require it, followed by cards with lesser points You can mix and match this order to suit your personal preferences. While arranging cards that you think have potential to be melded to sequences or runs, you should keep the following points in mind: a)Choose cards that have one card missing in the lot to .plete the sequence rather than those that have more. Example: Suppose you have a 7 of hearts and 10 of hearts. This would take two cards to .plete the run and such a run may take more time making it undesirable. It would be a better option if the cards were 7 of hearts with 9 of hearts, as only one card would be needed b)Give preference for sequences that can be .pleted from both sides. Example : One 9 of spades and a 10 of spades can be .pleted into an acceptable run with either 8 of spades or Jack of spades. This type of .bination would be preferable than if a middle card were missing. Example a 4 of clubs with a 6 of clubs. c)Choose to retain potential runs with a lesser score value. This will enable you to minimize the number of points you may incur when a win is declared by another player. d)Always remember that melding a sequence gets priority over melding of sets. This is so because sets would be considered as deadwood cards if the mandatory two runs are not melded These are just a few basic rules to keep you on the winning path in a Indian rummy game. 相关的主题文章:
