School - Lesson 5 - Choosing your seat
In the rummy game, differently than the poker game, we have no control over where we seat around the table.
The order of the seats is determined according to the highest card.
It is important to pay attention to the players sitting in that table before you choose to sit at that table, try to get to know the players, what does that mean?
After you chose which table you wish to play at, don't rush and start playing the first game. Approach the designated table, and watch a few games in which the participants play at the same table.
This is a very important stage before you try your luck and your money against these players. Later on you can try and learn each player's tactics and which of the game moves work for the player more or less.
While examining the other players, try to notice which of the players is more aggressive in his game and which of the players has a bigger pot of money. This will help you understand the players better.
When you feel you are ready to join a table and play for real money, you will have an advantage over the other players. You already know the other players and the way they play. You will remain the mysterious players who will be difficult to learn, your game and tactics will remain obscure.
It is important to leave the table after a few games with the same players and join other tables. When you mope to a different table, do your check again and again. Never give up, the more you study the other players, the more you increase your chances to win and make money.
In case you do feel the need to stay in a certain table, do it only if you are sure you are better than the other players, and it's easy for you to win in every round. This will not last for a long time since the same player will leave the table after a few losses.
Remember to always stay focused and concentrate, never ease your mind about any of the players. You can never know who you are playing against.
Patience and long term alertness pays off in the long term as you make your money.
Good luck to you all,
