It is a variant of rummy. According to the magician and writer John Scarne, gin rummy evolved from 19th-century whiskey poker and was created with the intention of being faster than standard rummy but less spontaneous than knock rummy. John Scarne’s theory deriving rummy from poker via whiskey poker has not gained general acceptance. Gin rummy is played with a standard 52-card pack of cards. The ranking from high to low is King, Queen, Jack, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, Ace.
The objective in gin rummy is to score points and reach an agreed number of points or more, usually 100, before the opponent does. The basic game strategy is to improve one’s hand by forming melds and eliminating deadwood. Gin has two types of meld: Sets of 3 or 4 cards sharing the same rank, e. Deadwood cards are those not in any meld.
