How to take part in major rummy tournaments and win exciting cash prizes?

Now it’s time for me to show you my 3 favourite rummy techniques that you can implement while playing tournaments.

#1 Understand that tournaments are time-bound

Tournaments are time boundWhile playing rummy tourneys, you need to understand that a rummy tournament consists of many rounds. And every round is time-bound. At the end of the every round, the chip leaders advance to the next round.

So make sure that your major priority should be to win maximum rounds and thereby get maximum chips within the time limit.

#2 Drop the game if necessary

Drop the game if necessarySince you want to get minimum points during the game, don’t hesitate to drop your hands if the hand is not good. Depending on the tournament format, that is ‘Rapid’ or ‘Regular’; you need to adjust your gaming strategy.

It is always not a bad idea to drop your hands. So, make the right decision at the right time like an intelligent rummy player to win in tournaments.

#3 Take a note of your opponents

Observe your opponentsTournaments contain multiple rounds, so it will be better to read your opponents closely. There are rounds where more than one player is selected to the next round. So there are chances that you might play with the same opponents.

If you closely monitor your opponents, you can grab their gaming style and play strategically. Play smart while you are on the tournament tables.
