How to play rummy

Rummy, a widely popular card game among millions of Indians, is characterized by the players' eagerness to achieve victory. While there are different variants of the game, the 13 card version holds a special place in the hearts of Indian players. The main objective of the game is to swiftly form pure and impure sequences. Players can select and discard cards from a pile to create these sequences. Here are some valuable strategies to give you an edge over the competition and increase your chances of winning a rummy game:

1. Prioritize a pure sequence: Securing a pure sequence, which consists of consecutive cards of the same suit, is crucial as it's a mandatory requirement. Avoid holding onto cards for too long in the hope of forming a sequence. If you have 3H, 5H, 6H, and obtain a 7H, discard the 3H.

2. Study your opponents: Keep a close eye on the cards your opponents discard and pick up. This provides valuable insights into their holdings and playing patterns.

3. Discard high-value cards: Holding onto high-value cards with the intention of using them later in a sequence can be a risky move. If your opponent declares before you, these cards will increase your penalty points.

4. Utilize the sort option: Organize your cards efficiently using the sorting option, arranging them according to suits. Use alternate colors to minimize confusion.

5. Employ bluffing tactics: Hold onto two similar cards and discard the unused one once a sequence is complete. Additionally, try to pick up cards you know your opponents need to confuse them.

6. Strategic use of Jokers: When using Jokers, focus on completing a sequence set or creating higher-point sequences. Avoid using Jokers in a natural sequence.

7. Take advantage of middle cards: Middle cards are versatile and can be used to form numerous combinations. Keep them in your hand for longer as they can greatly contribute to your victory.

8. Consider dropping from the game: In certain situations, like having a weak hand or struggling to form a sequence, it might be wise to use the drop option (middle drop).

9. Practice to improve: Utilize practice games on the platform to enhance your understanding of the game and refine your skills.

Please remember that these tips are meant to enhance your gameplay but do not guarantee a win. Rummy relies on skill, strategy, and a bit of luck, making each game unique and unpredictable.

How to play Teen Patti

Teen Patti, a beloved Indian gambling card game akin to poker, is commonly played in groups of 3 to 6 people using a standard 52-card deck without jokers. Each player is dealt three cards face down, and before the cards are distributed, a boot amount is determined and collected from each participant. This boot amount represents the minimum stake and is placed in the pot, which is the central pool of money on the table. As the game progresses, the pot grows, and the winner of each hand claims the accumulated amount. The winner is the player who stays in the game until the hand is completed and possesses the best or highest-ranking hand, following the card ranking as described below:

Card Ranking (from high to low):

1. Trail or Set (three cards of the same rank)
2. Pure Sequence
3. Sequence (or run)
4. Color
5. Pair (two cards of the same rank)
6. High Card

Playing Teen Patti: Each player contributes the boot money and receives three cards face down. The player next to the dealer takes the first turn in a clockwise direction. This player has the option to place a bet without looking at their cards (blind) or to see their cards. After viewing their cards, the player can play "chaal" or may have other options based on the game's progress. A player who places a blind bet is referred to as a blind player, while a player who bets after seeing the cards is called a seen player.

Blind Player: To become a blind player, you must not look at your cards. You can choose to play Pack, Blind, or Show if available. To play Blind, put a bet amount equal to the current stake or twice the current stake into the pot. The current stake amount, for the first player, is the boot amount. Therefore, if the first player is a blind player, they must bet an amount equal to the boot amount or twice the boot amount.

Stake Amount: The bet placed by a blind player becomes the stake amount for the next player, while half of the bet placed by a seen player becomes the stake amount for the next player. In the case of the next blind players, the bet amount can be equal to the stake amount or twice the stake amount.

A blind player can request a Show only when there is one opponent remaining in the game. This is known as a blind show. After asking for a show, the cards of both players become visible, and the winner takes the pot.

Seen Player: A seen player can choose to play Chaal, Pack, or may have other options like Show and Side Show. Once you have seen your cards, you must play chaal to remain in the game unless you select any other available option.

(a) Chaal: To stay in the game, a seen player must play Chaal or Side Show if available. For chaal, the player must put a bet amount into the pot. The bet amount for a seen player is either twice or four times the current stake amount. If the previous player was a blind player, the stake amount for the next player is the amount bet by the blind player. If the previous player was a seen player, the stake amount for the next player is half of the amount bet by the seen player.

(b) Side Show: A seen player can request a Side Show, which allows them to compare their cards with the cards of the previous player. This option is available only if the previous player is also a seen player, and there are one or more other players still in the game. To request a Side Show, the player puts an amount equal to twice the current stake into the pot. The request is conveyed to the previous player, who can either accept or deny the Side Show request.

If the Side Show request is accepted and the previous player has better cards, the player making the request must pack. If the player making the request has better cards, the previous player must pack. After one of the players has packed, the turn passes to the next player.

If the Side Show request is denied, both players do not see each other's cards, and they remain in the game, with the turn passing to the next player.

Limited Stake and Unlimited Stake Tables: When you initially play Teen Patti, you start at a limited stake table. On the first limited stake table, the boot amount is 2, the maximum number of blinds you can play is 4, the maximum Chaal you can play is 256, and the Pot limit is 2048. When the Pot limit is reached, all players still in the game are required to show their cards, and the winner claims the Pot.

In the next level limited table, the boot amount is 4, the maximum number of blinds you can play is 4, the maximum Chaal you can play is 512, and the Pot limit is 4096. Players who have played many hands and have accumulated a significant number of chips play on higher-level tables.
