However, not everyone is well-versed with the art of formulating winning rummy tricks. If you are someone who finds it difficult to come up with a new strategy in the spur of a moment, then this article is just the right thing for you. Here we’ve shared some useful rummy tricks that will help you skilfully defeat the opponents and grab big wins.
Bluffing Your Way to a Particular Card
Bluffing is a great strategy that rummy pros often use to outwit their opponents in a game. All you need to do is deliberately drop the wrong hints about the cards in your hand for an opponent, thereby providing him/her a free reign to drop the cards you desire. For example, If you are making a set of 8’s and are short of an 8 of Clubs, you can instead shed either the 7 or 9 of clubs (whichever you have) so that the opponent thinks you are not making a sequence with these cards. This will urge him to automatically drop the 8 of clubs for you to complete your set. This trick is also known as fish-baiting in rummy, and once learnt, often proves to be quite useful when you are facing a tight spot in a game.
Discarding Unexpected Cards
Making unexpected moves in the game is yet another way to trick your opponents in rummy. For starters, the opponent would expect you to discard the high-value cards first, as per the common rummy norms. You can surprise them by letting go of the low or mid-value cards first, although the ones you are sure that you’ll not need in the game. This will lead them into thinking that your game plan is to form melds from high-value cards, making them retain the same for a longer duration.
You can deftly use this trick to complete your sequences in the first 2-3 moves and then begin discarding the unwanted high-value cards. The trick’s a two-way shot. Even if the original plan doesn’t work, your opponent will still have to change his strategy at least twice, giving you some extra time to make that winning move.
Picking Up Unusual Cards
Another way to trick your opponent into not uncovering your original game strategy is by picking up the supposedly ‘wrong’ card from the open deck. No, it doesn’t mean that you have to pick up random cards from the opponent deck. Instead, strategically opt to pick cards that have absolutely no connection to a previous card you’ve picked up so as to confuse the opponent. For example, in one turn, you can pick a low-value card, and in the next, pick a high-value one. It will thoroughly confuse your opponent as to which type of cards you are using to complete your melds. And you never know, this trick might even fool them into dropping a card that is helpful to your game.
Aren’t the tricks shared here absolutely mind-boggling? If these tricks have piqued your interest, it’s time to begin using them on the cash tables and Tournaments to outwit fellow players.
