  • What cards they could have?

  • Should I take a drop?

You have to take a crucial decision that can make or break your game. You may think this many times, right from the beginning when the cards are dealt to you. Either you can take an initial or a middle drop, or it will be wiser to keep playing & still win. What will you decide?

  • Let’s hope he/she plays the way I assumed!

Rummy is also about observing the moves of your opponents, assuming what cards they have, and estimating their next move, because most players plan their next move accordingly. So, it is natural for you to pray to god that your opponents make their next move as per your assumption, whether it is a practice or cash game.

  • Am I in a Good position?

No, we are not talking about where are we standing/sitting and playing rummy, but our position/status in the game. It is important to know whether are you going in the right direction to get the win. Keep asking this question to yourself, at least after every few moves.

  • Am I revealing my cards/moves?

This worry should exist in your mind, as even your opponents are observing your every move and estimating your cards & future moves. To avoid this, many players deceive their opponents by making surprising moves. They sometimes discard cards that will confuse their opponents in assuming wrong cards in your hand.

  • I should bring my friends here!

Sometimes you may feel like playing with known people, they could be your friends or family. Or when you are winning games (and real cash prizes) in a row, you may feel like sharing this rummy gaming experience with all your near & dear ones.

Thankfully, almost all the rummy platforms run schemes like ‘Refer your Friend’. For each contact you refer, you and your contact, get a lucrative bonus or cash amounts, or other such prizes.
