"What card players the world over need is a great two-game." I have said this for many years, and now it seems fills the bill. It is truly the most fascinating and exciting card game in history. Regular Gin Rummy, unlike S basically a gambling game. Leave the stakes out of Gin R falls flat on its face as a no gambling game. Skarney Gin, a great family pastime. For the millions of married coup Gin is the ideal two-handed game.
Skarney Gin is the game that I honestly believe will soon displace regular Gin Rummy as America's favorite two-handed card game. It outclasses regular Gin Rummy not only in fun and excitement but in strategic planning. The reasons for the above statements are:
(1) Skarney Gin makes use of three melds, groups, sequences, and poker straights-whereas regular Gin Rummy employs only groups and sequences. This factor alone gives Skarney Gin greater scope and flexibility, causing the player to commit more errors than he would in regular Gin Rummy Online.
(2) The ten-card initially dealt hand in regular Gin Rummy always remains the same during play. In Skarney Gin the ten dealt card held by a player fluctuate. They may increase to twenty or more cards, decrease to one, increase to ten or more, remain the same, or dwindle to zero when a player goes Skarney or gin. This unusual and fascinating scientific aspect of Skarney Gin makes the game much more interesting and requires greater player concentration than regular Gin Rummy.
(3) Although Skarney Gin is a scientific game, poor players win occasionally, so that everyone becomes convinced that he plays well. In no other card game do you find so many self-proclaimed local champs.
To Winning Gin Rummy Player Must Know:
1. Learn the rules so thoroughly you can recall them instantly and correctly.
2. Minimize mechanical errors by picking up your dealt cards singly.
3. Don't break up a possible meld at the start of the hand to withhold a doubtful card from your opponent.
4. Study your contract meld before putting it down. However, it usually pays to put down poker straights rather than groups or sequences.
5. Risk adding to opponent's meld rather than offer a live potential discard.
6. Late in the hand, think twice before offering an ace (stop card) as your potential discards.
7. It usually doesn't pay to accept a potential discard only for its layoff value.
8. When purposely holding back your contract meld, make sure to study the score.
9. When putting down poker straights, it is best to meld them in sets of threes rather than sets of fours, fives, or sixes-the reason is, there are more opportunities for layoffs.
10. Don't play hunches-play the odds.
Standard Rules for Gin Rummy Requirements
1. Two players-although the game may involve three or four amateur players, only two of these may be in play against each other simultaneously.
2. A standard 52-card deck. It is recommended that two packs of cards with backs of different colors be used in the play. While the dealer is shuffling for the deal, the non-dealer is giving the other pack a preliminary shuffle, after which it is set to one side. It is shuffled again by the loser of this hand before he deals the next hand.
