Anyone can win a round of Gin Rummy provided certain tips are used and followed in this game. Firstly remember no wild cards are allowed in this card game like how it is allowed in other variations of Rummy. The basic focus of any player who wants to win should be to meld sets or runs. The player who uses his memory in the best way possible has a better chance of winning a round of Gin Rummy.
Avoid having a card in your hand which cannot be a part of any sequence. A round of Gin Rummy comes to an end when any player uses the Knock option. This Option should only be used when a player has 10 points or less of deadwood. Deadwood stands for unmatched or unmelded cards. The other player then gets a chance to expose his cards, and arrange them into runs and sets. Plus, the player can take any of unmelded cards and add them to the sets or runs laid down by the knocker.
But the best way to earn points in Gin Rummy is to use the Go Gin option. A player should try his level best to meld all his cards without leaving any deadwood count. That means he should not have a single unmelded card. A winner in such a case not only earns 25 points but also gets to add the deadwood count of his opponent. Thus a player who is an expert at using the Go Gin option and melding all his cards can earn a large number of points. When a player reaches a score of 100 or any other pre-decided score, then that player receives a game bonus of 100 points. This too adds to the point’s tally of a player. Choose the strategy which suits your game and can help you to win Gin Rummy.

Our friend with his own Kalooki website, suggested kalooki 51 is the all time favorite of card games in the Rummy genre, furthermore he even suggested that Kalooki 51 is the new Texas Hold’em and is to replace the poker hype.

Furthermore this game can also be played in tiles which is suitable for younger people to play against adult, we all know the popular game of Rummikub which we used to play – this is exactly it.

One thing is for sure, Rummy is here and it’s big!
Lately we’re witnessing more and more players ditching the traditional online poker platforms and moving to the next best thing – online rummy.
Rummy Royal which reinvented the concept of online rummy games with a revolutionary rummy game software, has recently launched a 51 points version for the popular kalooki 51 game. The version of this game was launched in mid April and made a buzz among rummy players who immediately made this version of the rummy game their favorite.
It’s now safe to say that the online Rummy game is here to stay and it’s a matter of time until it will hit the news and make the same buzz as online poker did.
One of the most attractive features about the online rummy platform is without a doubt the similarity to the online poker platform which made it so much easier for poker players who are familiar with the rummy game or kalooki game rules to make the switch.
