How Score Is Calculated in Pool Rummy

In pool rummy, the person who wins a round doesn't get any points. But, if you lose, you get penalty points based on the number of cards left in your hand. Here's how the points work:

  • Face cards like Kings (K), Queens (Q), Jacks (J), and Aces (A) are each worth 10 points.
  • Numbered cards (2 to 10) are worth the same as their number. For instance, a 7 of any kind is 7 points.
  • Jokers, whether printed or wild, have zero points.

Winner's Score:

  • The person who organizes their cards into valid sets first wins.
  • The winner gets zero points and takes chips from others based on their scores.

Loser's Score:

  • Add up the points of the leftover cards for the losing player.
  • For example, if you have cards like 7, A♠, and 6♣, add their values: 7 + 10 + 6 = 23 points.
  • If a player's score reaches the maximum, they're out.

Winnings Calculation:

  • For pool rummy, calculate winnings using: (Entry fee X Number of players) – RummyJax fee.
  • If 5 players pay ₹300 each, the prize pool is ₹1500.
  • The winner gets ₹1500 minus the RummyJax fee.
