How to Play Gin Rummy: Card Games : The Object of Gin Rummy

Hi, this is Gary Zyer for Expert Village.
Now that we’ve dealt a hand, let’s discuss what the object of the game is. What’s the
object of the game Gin Rummy? The object is to collect a hand where most or all of the
cards can be melded into sets or runs, and the point value of the remaining unmatched
cards is low. What is a run and what is a set? A run, or sequence, consists of three
or more cards of the same suite in consecutive order. Such as the three, four, five, and
six of hearts, or the Ace, two, three of clubs. A set, or group, is three or four cards of
the same rank. Such as four Queens or three sevens. The card can belong to only one combination
at a time. You can’t use a card to be both part of a set of equal cards AND a sequence
of consecutive cards. In this case, if you want to use the seven of hearts to join in
on this meld, then you would be breaking up the meld of the three sevens. And, therefore,
these two sevens wouldn’t be worth anything. They’d be considered unmatched cards. Standard
Gin Rummy rules play that the Ace is low. Therefore, Ace, two, three would be a good
meld. But, Queen, King, Ace would not. Let’s take a look at some examples of some winning
hands in Gin Rummy. This would be considered a winning hand: four Queens, three fours,
and a series Ace, two, three of diamonds. This would be an example of another winning
hand in Gin Rummy. We have a series Jack, Queen, King; another series five, six, seven,
eight of clubs; and a group of three sixes. Because each hand consists of ten cards, in
order to get a winning Gin hand, you will need to form three melds. That would make
two melds of three cards, and one meld of four cards.

  4. he single-handedly ended the gin games in vegas because no one could beat him. not even the so called best players in the world. he would suck the confidence and game right out of them and they'd leave the table broken & battered financially & mentally. he would even give huge handicaps to drum up action but it got to the point where the casino managers would have to ask him to just please stay away. lol. so he began playing poker and before he died he was arguably the best hold'em player ever.

  9. You actually do not need to create a 4 card meld along with two 3 card melds. At the end of each play you must discard a single card, including your last play (unless "knocking" but that's for another lesson). You can have three 3 card melds and a totally unrelated discard. And to answer others' questions, yes 4 card runs are fine, as are 5 card runs.
