Pools Rummy

The Pool variant of rummy is possibly the easiest and most basic version of Indian Rummy and yet the most preferred among skilled players. With Indian Rummy now moving into the sphere of online rummy games, you get to join a virtual pool of players who could be logged in from any corner of the world.

Pool rummy, also known as a “Syndicate” is joined by 2 to 6 players and can be played out over a long stretch of time. So get comfortable and keep a pot of coffee ready at hand when you join your game!

In this popular format of the hot favorite Indian Rummy card game, the player scoring the least points in a syndicate ultimately becomes the winner. Testing your skills against a group of players in a syndicate even as you join the conversation in chat is highly exciting and there can be nothing more thrilling than winning.

In a 101 pool game you stand to be eliminated from the pool if you cross the maximum 101 points, with 201 points being the limit in the 201 pool game. Being eliminated from a game does not mean the end of the game for you though.

You can rejoin the pool by buying in if other players in the 101 pool game have less than 79 points. In the 201 pool game the required top score from other players for allowing you to buy in is 174 points.

Other than this, the game rules in these pool games remain the same so the player scoring lowest number of points at the end of three deals wins this game and the chips.

If you’re wondering about the secret of winning in the Pools, then simply remember the rules of Indian Rummy. Points are counted on basis of cards which do not fit in the Sets or Sequences which must be formed with all thirteen cards at the end of a round. In other words, players are penalized for not having melded their hand quickly and successfully enough.

  • How to Play
    • Indian Rummy is a popular 13 card game that is one of a larger number of Draw and Discard games. The basic objective of these games is to improve one's Hand, that is, whatever cards one has, by drawing and discarding cards and forming sets. Certain rules have to be followed while making these sets.

      In all Rummy games, each player is dealt a hand of cards. Additionally, there are 2 stacks from which each player can select cards, thereby drawing a card. Once a player draws a card, he has to get rid of one card (discarding). A player can draw from either the closed un-dealt cards or the open discarded pile.

      For a particular Hand, each player is provided with 13 cards. The objective is to arrange these cards into appropriate groups of cards. These groups can be either Life or Set. A minimum of 2 Lives are required to have a valid arrangement.
