Gin Rummy Rules AND HOW TO PLAY
Gin Rummy was created with the intention of being faster than basic Rummy. The rules are very easy to learn as it is simply a matter of the draw and discard, without the complications attached to displaying melds and laying off cards between turns. Both of these things are done at the end of a hand and Gin Rummy is often played without any kind of laying off making for a "quick fire" game. These rules were originally written to facilitate offline play but often also apply to the game of Gin Rummy that is played online.
Gin Rummy is an immensely popular card game owing to the high skill component of the game when compared to other casino card games such as Poker or Blackjack. You play Gin Rummy with ten cards which are to be formed into melds (runs and/or sets) as shown in the three example fully melded gin hands on the left hand side.
Players & Deck - Gin Rummy is primarily a two player game although in other variations in the rules of this card game, up to four players can play. A deck of 52 cards is used, there are no wild cards and each player takes turns dealing the cards.

The Deal - Whoever is dealing the cards deals each player 10 cards. The next card from the deck is turned face up which indicates that it is the start of the discard pile. The rest of the deck is positioned face down and is called the stock pile.

A Set, on the other hand, is a group of three or four cards that are identical rank and of different suits, such as for example:
