#the bluffer

Having the power to make someone believe something that you want them to believe, especially when that thing is not true, cannot be considered a small one.

Rummy is a game where you can bluff and force your opponents in to drop their hand. They trick other players into thinking that they are about to finish the game, but in reality, they might be having a mediocre starting hand.

Rummy needs a Ace playing style

Are you a macho player? The one who likes to play every hand. The one who believes in his good luck so much that he feels that he will the right card even after 10 rounds. 

Macho players are the ones who never drop the game no matter what. They will play every hand and continuously try to meld their cards even when they do not have a pure sequence. 

Well, machoism can get you large swings – both large gains and large losses too. If you are using this strategy make sure you use it only for 10% of your games. 

On the other side, try to spot the aggressive player on your table. If you can identify someone who is showing the machoism in 2-3 games, you can make large profits from such a player.


Doesn’t everyone want to be this player? But then reality takes over! We fall into our regular style of playing, where our emotions take over and we believe that we will get the final card. Because everyone’s natural tendency is to win every game. But this player #theplayer knows that you can’t win every game and you have to calculate the odds, based on your initial 13 cards. Intelligent players constantly check their points and odds of winning and they might decide to make a mid-game drop.

Rummy is the best game for such players who are good at calculating odds and who don’t let emotions over there rational decision making. 

You need to be careful with these types of players as the hands they play are more likely to finish first.

So, what type of rummy player are you? Next time you are playing rummy online for cash, notice the gaming behavior of players on your table, and have YOUR strategy to win- Keep Playing!
