How to Draw Inferences from the Cards Played by Opponents

by Nicolette Camille on March 26, 2014

“Rummy is deservedly popular because it is easy to learn, fast to play, suitable for all ages, playable by any number, and as suitable for gamblers as for missionaries – though perhaps not both at once.” – David Parlett, a games scholar from South London, who studied both card and board games.

The popularity of Rummy has seen no bounds, across countries, age groups and  people with varied interests. The game is played in different regions and is known by different names. If you love playing Rummy, you would definitely want to end up on the winning side, all the more because of the cash rewards and prizes being offered by RummyCirlce.com. One of the most factors that could contribute to your winning this engaging card game is drawing inferences from the cards played by opponents.

Never Mind Your Own Business in Rummy

Since Rummy is a competitive game, you not only need to know your own cards, but also need to make calculated guesses about what cards your opponents have. You wouldn’t want to discards cards that could help your opponent to win. Rather, you would like to hold onto cards that are useful to your opponent. Here’s what you can do:

Pay attention to the cards picked up from the discard pile

Keeping an eye on the cards picked by your opponents will help you determine the melds being formed by them. For instance, if your opponent picks up a Queen of hearts, you would not risk throwing a Jack or King of hearts. In fact, you should hold onto any Queens as well, just in case your opponent is trying to make a set.

Keeping an eye on the cards discarded by the opponent

Keeping track of the cards discarded by your opponent will help you eliminate the melds that he/she may be making. For example, if your opponent discards a 5 of hearts, you can comfortably discard a four or three of hearts. If your opponent picks up your discarded Ace of spade, but had discarded an Ace of clubs earlier in the game, you can be sure that he/he is not making a set, but instead a run including the Ace you discarded.

Paying attention to your opponent’s moves will help you get a fair idea of the cards in his/her hand; and if you are good at memorizing things, you have a good chance of winning the game.
