Funds are typically due on the day of your lease signing, although these requirements can vary depending on the rental and the circumstances.</p>\n<p>The following list outlines multiple scenarios you should be aware of and estimates costs for them, using the price point of $2,000 (for easy math; prices, of course, will vary). If you hire a broker, their fee is an additional cost, sometimes a percentage of the annual rent. The calculations here assume a broker fee equal to one month’s rent.</p>\n<ul>\n<li><strong>First month’s rent and one-month security deposit:</strong> Some rentals require these two payments to move in. For example, $2,000 + $2,000 = $4,000.</li>\n<li><strong>First month’s rent, one and a half months’ security deposit, and broker’s fee:</strong> In some cases, you may need to pay a higher security deposit and the broker’s fee. For example, $2,000 + $3,000 + $2,000 = $7,000.</li>\n<li><strong>First month’s rent, one-month security deposit, and broker’s fee:</strong> This scenario combines the initial rent, security deposit, and broker’s fee. For example, $2,000 + $2,000 + $2,000 = $6,000.</li>\n<li><strong>First month’s rent, one-month security deposit, and last month’s rent:</strong> Certain rentals may ask for the first and last months’ rents as well as a security deposit.

Providing all the requested documents can help improve your chances of having your application approved. Here’s a list of the most commonly required documents for rental approval.</p>\n<ul>\n<li><strong>Rental application form:</strong> No surprise here: Supporting documentation doesn’t do you any good if you don’t submit the actual application paperwork! The application typically requests your full name, current address, previous address, reason for moving, date of birth, Social Security number, salary, and employer name. It may also ask for your consent to request your credit report.</li>\n<li><strong>Pay stubs:</strong> The landlord uses your pay stubs to verify your income can meet the rental payment obligations. Your pay stub will also display your year-to-date income, which should match the salary you’ve already stated. This verification is a standard procedure in the rental application process to determine your financial stability and ability to make on-time payments.</li>\n<li><strong>Employment verification letter or offer letter:</strong> Some landlords require you to provide a letter of employment confirming your salary and hire date. If you’re applying for a rental and haven’t started your employment, you need to submit a letter indicating the job offer.</li>\n<li><strong>Bank statement:</strong> Most landlords require you to submit your current bank. They confirm direct deposits from your employer as part of the due diligence process.</li>\n<li><strong>Investment statement:</strong> Sometimes a landlord asks you to send a copy of your most recent investment account statement to confirm your assets. If your regular income seems insufficient, showing additional assets may help you get approved.</li>\n<li><strong>Tax return:</strong> Landlords use your previous year’s tax return to verify your previous income. In some situations, the landlord asks for two years of tax returns to confirm consistent and reliable income.</li>\n<li><strong>Landlord reference letter:</strong> A landlord reference letter is required for most rental applications, especially if you’re moving from another rental. If this application is for your first rental, a letter from a professor, employer, or colleague who can verify your trustworthiness should be sufficient.</li>\n<li><strong>Photo ID: </strong>Any rental you apply for will require identification. Acceptable forms of identification include a driver’s license, state-issued photo ID, passport, and Social Security card or birth certificate.</li>\n<li><strong>Social Security number:</strong> The landlord uses your Social Security number to request your credit report. You’ve likely provided this info as part of your application form.</li>\n<li><strong>Personal reference letter:</strong> Occasionally, landlords may request a personal reference letter to assess your suitability as a tenant. Lining someone up to provide a reference just in case is always a good idea.</li>\n</ul>\n"},{"title":"Understanding the Benefits of Hiring a Rental Agent","thumb":null,"image":null,"content":"<p>Should you work with a rental agent? In short, yes. Rental agents offer invaluable insights into your prospective neighborhood, serving as experts who enhance your search experience. Most importantly, they grant you access to many desired properties. With connections to numerous landlords, their primary role is guiding you through the process, making it smoother for you and the property owner.</p>\n<p>That experience and access don’t come free, however. Rental agents are compensated through commissions, paid mainly by you (the renter) and occasionally by the landlord. When you decide to work with an agent, discuss their fee structure and when payments are expected. Commissions for rentals are often calculated as a percentage of the first year’s rent or equivalent to one month’s rent.</p>\n"},{"title":"A Few Important Items in Your Rental’s Lease","thumb":null,"image":null,"content":"<p>As a new renter, you may feel overwhelmed by some of the language and the terms in your lease agreement. Before you sign on the dotted line, you should clearly understand the terms and your responsibilities. This list covers some of the most important items.</p>\n<ul>\n<li><strong>Rent payment:</strong> Most leases will include\n<ul>\n<li>A due date for the rent.</li>\n<li>The amount of rent due for each month.</li>\n<li>Any late fees.</li>\n<li>The different methods the rent can be paid.</li>\n</ul>\n<p> \tIf the lease does not indicate these details, the landlord will include that language in the lease rider.\n</li>\n<li><strong>Lease terms:</strong> As the tenant, you must understand the terms and conditions of your lease before signing it. If you don’t understand something, get clarification before signing.\n<p class=\"article-tips remember\">When you sign the lease agreement, you’re legally bound to its terms, so make sure you understand what you’re signing before the lease is fully executed.</p>\n</li>\n<li><strong>Length of your lease:</strong> The length of your lease agreement is the time between the start and end date (including those two dates, obviously). During this period, both you and the landlord are bound to the terms and conditions.</li>\n<li><strong>Utilities:</strong> Verifying what utilities are included in the rent before signing your lease is a good practice. Some rentals include some or all utilities, and some don’t. You don’t want surprises or additional expenses, so make sure that you know what your utility obligations are before moving in.</li>\n<li><strong>Security deposit:</strong> The security deposit is what you pay to ensure the rental is returned in the same or similar condition that you moved into, minus standard wear and tear. Standard wear and tear can include lightly scratched floors and worn carpet, faded paint, and small nail holes from hanging pictures. In other words, the property should have working appliances, including smoke detectors; doors on hinges; floors free of holes; operating windows; and no major debris like furniture you don’t want. Additionally, you should leave it in broom-swept condition. After you move, the security deposit is typically returned within 15–60 days, depending on your state’s regulations.</li>\n<li><strong>Occupants:</strong> Your lease should include all occupants expected to live at the property. It should also discuss what’s permissible regarding guests and the length of their stays; ensure you act within these terms. If you move someone in without prior notice, you may violate the lease.</li>\n<li><strong>Alterations:</strong> Your lease should explicitly state that alterations require approval in advance. That means before you make any changes or upgrades to the rental, you need to get permission from the owner or property manager.</li>\n<li><strong>Pets: </strong>Most properties require pet approval. Your lease will specify whether (and sometimes which) pets are allowed, and you’re accountable for following these guidelines.</li>\n<li><strong>Renter’s insurance:</strong> Most rentals require you to have insurance before moving in, and your lease will indicate whether your place is one of them. Speak to the property owner or property manager about renter’s insurance.</li>\n</ul>\n"}],"videoInfo":{"videoId":null,"name":null,"accountId":null,"playerId":null,"thumbnailUrl":null,"description":null,"uploadDate":null}},"sponsorship":{"sponsorshipPage":false,"backgroundImage":{"src":null,"width":0,"height":0},"brandingLine":"","brandingLink":"","brandingLogo":{"src":null,"width":0,"height":0},"sponsorAd":"","sponsorEbookTitle":"","sponsorEbookLink":"","sponsorEbookImage":{"src":null,"width":0,"height":0}},"primaryLearningPath":"Solve","lifeExpectancy":"Two years","lifeExpectancySetFrom":"2025-01-08T00:00:00+00:00","dummiesForKids":"no","sponsoredContent":"no","adInfo":"","adPairKey":[]},"status":"publish","visibility":"public","articleId":301469},{"headers":{"creationTime":"2017-03-26T11:01:19+00:00","modifiedTime":"2025-01-03T15:05:25+00:00","timestamp":"2025-01-03T18:01:13+00:00"},"data":{"breadcrumbs":[{"name":"Home, Auto, & Hobbies","_links":{"self":"//dummies-api.coursofppt.com/v2/categories/33809"},"slug":"home-auto-hobbies","categoryId":33809},{"name":"Sports & Recreation","_links":{"self":"//dummies-api.coursofppt.com/v2/categories/34001"},"slug":"sports-recreation","categoryId":34001},{"name":"Fantasy Sports","_links":{"self":"//dummies-api.coursofppt.com/v2/categories/34011"},"slug":"fantasy-sports","categoryId":34011},{"name":"Fantasy Football","_links":{"self":"//dummies-api.coursofppt.com/v2/categories/34014"},"slug":"fantasy-football","categoryId":34014}],"title":"How Fantasy Football Playoffs Work","strippedTitle":"how fantasy football playoffs work","slug":"how-fantasy-football-playoffs-work","canonicalUrl":"","手机搜目录擎推广":{"metaDescription":"When you are approaching the end of your fantasy football season, if it has gone well, you may be in contention to make the playoffs.

If that's the case, congratulations! Bragging rights are what this game is all about, and you are one step closer to achieving the ultimate prize.\r\n\r\nIf not, don't feel bad. There's always next year, and most leagues include a consolation playoff so you can at least one up a few of your friends or co-workers — even if your season didn't go as planned. No matter how your season ended, you need to know how fantasy football playoffs work, so you can pursue a league championship.\r\n<div class=\"imageBlock\" style=\"width: 535px;\">\r\n\r\n<img src=\"//coursofppt.com/wp-content/uploads/437470.image0.jpg\" alt=\"Fantasy football playoff trophies await league winners. [Credit: ©iStockphoto.com/zentilia]\" width=\"535\" height=\"319\" />\r\n<div class=\"imageCredit\">Credit: ©iStockphoto.com/zentilia</div>\r\n<div class=\"imageCaption\">Fantasy football playoff trophies await league winners.</div>\r\n</div>\r\n<h2 id=\"tab1\" >Fantasy football playoff rules and structure</h2>\r\nGenerally, the teams with the best records will make the playoffs. In some leagues with divisions, that may not be the case. In leagues without divisions, the teams with the best records will advance to the playoffs.\r\n\r\nLeagues that include divisions will usually have two or three divisions and operate like the NFL to determine which teams make the playoffs. The team with the best record in the division will advance, even if it doesn't have one of the best overall records league-wide.\r\n\r\nIn leagues with divisions, there will usually be one or two wildcard teams that will earn their positions from win/loss records among the rest of the non-division winners. Division winners always have a higher seed than wild card teams.\r\n<p class=\"Remember\">The team with the best record will be the 1st seed in the playoffs. If your league has divisions, this team would have, coincidentally, won its division as well. Another divisional winner with the next best record will be the 2nd seed, and so on. If your league does not have divisions, the remaining seeds will be determined by overall win/loss records.</p>\r\nIn the event that two or more teams have identical win/loss records at the end of the fantasy football regular season, a tie-breaking system will determine their position. Most leagues use a standard tie-breaking system, and it goes as follows:\r\n<ol class=\"level-one\">\r\n \t<li>\r\n<p class=\"first-para\">Overall points scored</p>\r\n</li>\r\n \t<li>\r\n<p class=\"first-para\">Head-to-head record</p>\r\n</li>\r\n \t<li>\r\n<p class=\"first-para\">Division record</p>\r\n</li>\r\n \t<li>\r\n<p class=\"first-para\">Overall points against</p>\r\n</li>\r\n \t<li>\r\n<p class=\"first-para\">Coin flip</p>\r\n</li>\r\n</ol>\r\n<h2 id=\"tab2\" >Fantasy football playoff formats</h2>\r\nIn a standard league, four teams will make the playoffs. In this case, the 1st seed will play the 4th seed, and the 2nd seed will play the 3rd seed. The winners of these two matchups will go on to the next week to play for the league championship; the losers will play for 3rd place.\r\n\r\n<img src=\"//coursofppt.com/wp-content/uploads/437605.fantasy-football-4-team-bracket.jpg\" alt=\"4 team fantasy football playoff bracket\" />\r\n\r\nIn some deeper leagues with 12 or more teams, 6 teams can make the playoffs, introducing the need for bye weeks. Bye weeks act similar to the NFL playoff bye weeks. The 1st and 2nd seeded teams will not have to play the 1st round; instead they automatically advance to the 2nd round and will play the winners of the 1st round.\r\n\r\n<img src=\"//coursofppt.com/wp-content/uploads/437606.fantasy-football-6-team-bracket.jpg\" alt=\"6 team fantasy football playoff bracket\" />\r\n\r\nThe consolation playoffs work similar to the regular playoffs in seeding and bracket style.\r\n\r\nIn most leagues, the fantasy playoffs will begin week 13 or 14 of the NFL season. Standard leagues (four team playoffs) will use the following two weeks for the playoffs, and larger leagues with six teams may continue playing all the way through week 17.\r\n\r\nHowever, most leagues omit week 17 (and some even week 16) to prevent unfair play from NFL teams resting players for their real playoffs. Nobody wants to have their playoffs ruined by a resting player. For example, if Peyton Manning is on your team and has dominated the entire season, your fantasy football championship can be decided by having to scramble for a backup quarterback (QB) because Manning is resting during week 17.\r\n<p class=\"Remember\">To best prepare for the fantasy football playoffs, be sure to read your league rules to understand how the playoffs are set up.

If that's the case, congratulations! Bragging rights are what this game is all about, and you are one step closer to achieving the ultimate prize.\r\n\r\nIf not, don't feel bad. There's always next year, and most leagues include a consolation playoff so you can at least one up a few of your friends or co-workers — even if your season didn't go as planned. No matter how your season ended, you need to know how fantasy football playoffs work, so you can pursue a league championship.\r\n<div class=\"imageBlock\" style=\"width: 535px;\">\r\n\r\n<img src=\"//coursofppt.com/wp-content/uploads/437470.image0.jpg\" alt=\"Fantasy football playoff trophies await league winners. [Credit: ©iStockphoto.com/zentilia]\" width=\"535\" height=\"319\" />\r\n<div class=\"imageCredit\">Credit: ©iStockphoto.com/zentilia</div>\r\n<div class=\"imageCaption\">Fantasy football playoff trophies await league winners.</div>\r\n</div>\r\n<h2 id=\"tab1\" >Fantasy football playoff rules and structure</h2>\r\nGenerally, the teams with the best records will make the playoffs. In some leagues with divisions, that may not be the case. In leagues without divisions, the teams with the best records will advance to the playoffs.\r\n\r\nLeagues that include divisions will usually have two or three divisions and operate like the NFL to determine which teams make the playoffs. The team with the best record in the division will advance, even if it doesn't have one of the best overall records league-wide.\r\n\r\nIn leagues with divisions, there will usually be one or two wildcard teams that will earn their positions from win/loss records among the rest of the non-division winners. Division winners always have a higher seed than wild card teams.\r\n<p class=\"Remember\">The team with the best record will be the 1st seed in the playoffs. If your league has divisions, this team would have, coincidentally, won its division as well. Another divisional winner with the next best record will be the 2nd seed, and so on. If your league does not have divisions, the remaining seeds will be determined by overall win/loss records.</p>\r\nIn the event that two or more teams have identical win/loss records at the end of the fantasy football regular season, a tie-breaking system will determine their position. Most leagues use a standard tie-breaking system, and it goes as follows:\r\n<ol class=\"level-one\">\r\n \t<li>\r\n<p class=\"first-para\">Overall points scored</p>\r\n</li>\r\n \t<li>\r\n<p class=\"first-para\">Head-to-head record</p>\r\n</li>\r\n \t<li>\r\n<p class=\"first-para\">Division record</p>\r\n</li>\r\n \t<li>\r\n<p class=\"first-para\">Overall points against</p>\r\n</li>\r\n \t<li>\r\n<p class=\"first-para\">Coin flip</p>\r\n</li>\r\n</ol>\r\n<h2 id=\"tab2\" >Fantasy football playoff formats</h2>\r\nIn a standard league, four teams will make the playoffs. In this case, the 1st seed will play the 4th seed, and the 2nd seed will play the 3rd seed. The winners of these two matchups will go on to the next week to play for the league championship; the losers will play for 3rd place.\r\n\r\n<img src=\"//coursofppt.com/wp-content/uploads/437605.fantasy-football-4-team-bracket.jpg\" alt=\"4 team fantasy football playoff bracket\" />\r\n\r\nIn some deeper leagues with 12 or more teams, 6 teams can make the playoffs, introducing the need for bye weeks. Bye weeks act similar to the NFL playoff bye weeks. The 1st and 2nd seeded teams will not have to play the 1st round; instead they automatically advance to the 2nd round and will play the winners of the 1st round.\r\n\r\n<img src=\"//coursofppt.com/wp-content/uploads/437606.fantasy-football-6-team-bracket.jpg\" alt=\"6 team fantasy football playoff bracket\" />\r\n\r\nThe consolation playoffs work similar to the regular playoffs in seeding and bracket style.\r\n\r\nIn most leagues, the fantasy playoffs will begin week 13 or 14 of the NFL season. Standard leagues (four team playoffs) will use the following two weeks for the playoffs, and larger leagues with six teams may continue playing all the way through week 17.\r\n\r\nHowever, most leagues omit week 17 (and some even week 16) to prevent unfair play from NFL teams resting players for their real playoffs.

Alas, you can't just eat your way to Mediterranean health. Living a healthy lifestyle means you have to look at all aspects of your life. Along with the food plan is a way of life that includes regular physical activity and time for rest, community, and fun; for the folks on the Mediterranean coast, this combination seems to have created that ever-elusive life balance.\r\n\r\nTo tie all the Mediterranean diet and lifestyle concepts together, Oldways Preservation and Exchange Trust came up with the Mediterranean Food Guide Pyramid based on the dietary traditions of Crete, other parts of Greece, and southern Italy around 1960, when chronic diseases such as heart disease and cancer were low. As you can see, the focus is on eating a diet rich in vegetables, fruits, whole grains, legumes, and seafood; eating less meat; and choosing healthy fats such as olive oil. Note also the importance of fun activities, time shared with family and friends, and a passion for life.\r\n\r\n[caption id=\"attachment_246857\" align=\"alignnone\" width=\"352\"]<img class=\"size-full wp-image-246857\" src=\"//coursofppt.com/wp-content/uploads/mediterranean-pyramid.jpg\" alt=\"mediterranean-pyramid\" width=\"352\" height=\"400\" /> Illustration by Liz Kurtzman<br /><br />The Mediterranean Food Guide Pyramid.[/caption]\r\n<h2 id=\"tab1\" >Focusing on healthy fats</h2>\r\nAlthough Mediterranean residents don't consume a lowfat diet, their dietary pattern is considered heart-healthy. How can that be? Not all fats are created equal. People in the Mediterranean consume more of the healthier types of fats (monounsaturated fats and polyunsaturated omega-3 fatty acids) and less of the omega-6 polyunsaturated fatty acids and saturated fats other cultures tend to overload on. Instead of focusing on total fat intake, these folks maintain a healthier ratio of these different groups of fats than you see in the United States; they consume about 35 percent of their total daily calories from fat, but less than 8 percent of their calories come from saturated fats. According to the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, the average intake of saturated fats in the United States is 11 percent of daily calories.\r\n\r\nTo start rebalancing your fat ratio, limit your use of fats such as butter and lard in cooking and use more olive oils or avocadoes for spreads.\r\n<h2 id=\"tab2\" >Don't say \"cheese\": Using dairy in moderation</h2>\r\nYou may think of the Mediterranean as a cheese-eater's heaven, but the truth is that the Mediterranean areas we focus on don't consume a lot of cheese. Dairy is consumed on a daily basis in the Mediterranean diet, and cheese (along with yogurt) is a common source of calcium; however, moderation is the key (isn't it always?).\r\n\r\nIncorporate two to three servings of full-fat dairy products daily. One serving may include an eight-ounce glass of milk, eight ounces of yogurt, or an ounce of cheese.\r\n<h2 id=\"tab3\" >Eating primarily plant-based foods</h2>\r\nOne of the most important concepts of the Mediterranean diet pattern is consuming tons of plant foods such as fruits, veggies, legumes, and whole grains. People in the Mediterranean commonly eat five to ten servings of fruits and vegetables each day, which often means having two to three vegetable servings with each meal. Other daily staples include legumes such as beans, lentils, and peas, and whole grains such as bulgur wheat or barley.\r\n\r\nFoods in these categories are naturally low in calories and high in nutrients, which makes weight- and health-management easy. Begin by finding ways to incorporate more unprocessed plant foods in your diet on a daily basis.\r\n<h2 id=\"tab4\" >Punching up the flavor with fresh herbs and spices</h2>\r\nFresh herbs and spices not only add tremendous flavor to food but also have many hidden health benefits. If you already use ample herbs and spices in your own cooking, you're on the right track.\r\n<h2 id=\"tab5\" >Enjoying seafood weekly</h2>\r\nSeafood is a weekly staple in the Mediterranean diet, and with good reason. Not only is it a local product, but it's also a great source of those coveted omega-3 fatty acids. If you live near a coast, you have a great opportunity to find fresh fish in your local stores and restaurants. If you're landlocked, don't discount lakes and rivers for fresh fish.\r\n\r\nDon't like fish? You can get omega-3 fatty acids in other ways, such as with fish oil supplements or by eating lots of fresh herbs, walnuts, omega-3 enriched eggs, chia seeds, and flaxseeds.\r\n<h2 id=\"tab6\" >Limiting red meat</h2>\r\nRed meat used to be a luxury item in rural parts of the Mediterranean, so folks there ate it less frequently. Even though it's now more accessible to the average Joe, the serving limits have stuck over the years.\r\n\r\nBeef is only served once or twice a month in the Mediterranean rather than several times a week like in many U.S. kitchens. And when it does hit the table, it's usually as a small (two- to three-ounce) side dish rather than an eight-plus-ounce entree. This habit helps ensure a reasonable intake of saturated fats and omega-6 fatty acids.\r\n\r\nDon't panic at the idea of cutting your meat portion so drastically. You can easily replace some of that meat with lentils or beans to add plant-based protein to your meals, or add more vegetable servings to help fill the plate. Also keep in mind that Mediterranean beef recipes are so full of flavor that a small serving becomes more satisfying.\r\n<h2 id=\"tab7\" >Having a nice glass of vino</h2>\r\nWine lovers, rejoice! Drinking a glass of wine with dinner is certainly a common practice in the Mediterranean regions. Red wine has special nutrients that are shown to be heart-healthy; however, moderation is so important. Enjoying some red wine a couple of times a week is certainly a good plan for heart health, although you want to check with your doctor to ensure its okay for you.\r\n<h2 id=\"tab8\" >Getting a good dose of daily activity</h2>\r\nHistorically, the people in the rural Mediterranean got plenty of daily activity through work, getting where they needed to go on foot, and having fun. The most notable difference is folks who lived in these areas participated in low-impact movement, like walking, kneading bread, and gardening, all day long. In today's fast-paced environment, people tend to do one short burst of high-impact activity and then sit the rest of the day, a pattern still associated with a higher risk of heart diseases, diabetes, cancer, and mortality. Both types of activity are important for optimal health.\r\n\r\nAlthough you may rely heavily on your car and think this lifestyle isn't realistic for you, you can still find ways to incorporate both aerobic exercise (which gets your heart rate up) and strength-training exercises regularly.\r\n<p class=\"article-tips tip\">Walking encompasses both aerobic and strength training and helps relieve stress. If you live close to markets or restaurants, challenge yourself to walk to them rather than drive, or simply focus on taking a walk each day to unwind. And don't forget fun activities like hiking a trail, riding your bike, or taking a swim. Keep your body moving all day.</p>\r\n\r\n<h2 id=\"tab9\" >Taking time for the day's biggest meal</h2>\r\nEven though the Mediterranean residents of days gone by were hard workers, often doing a significant amount of manual labor, they always made time for their largest meal of the day. Traditionally, this meal was lunch, where people sat down as a family and enjoyed a large meal full of vegetables, legumes, fruits, and seafood or meat. Taking time for meal and family was a priority; you didn't see people eating in five minutes at the countertop.\r\n\r\nIn many cultures, having this large relaxing meal at lunchtime is difficult because of work schedules. However, you can adapt this strategy into your life by focusing on supper. Prioritizing some time to unwind and relax from a busy workday provides other benefits for your family. According to a Columbia University survey, teenagers who eat with their families at least five days a week have better grades in school and are less prone to substance abuse.\r\n\r\nAlthough taking time for a large, relaxing meal sounds like one of those optional strategies you can skip, keep in mind that even small lifestyle choices can make a very big impact on overall health. Family dinners can help you clear your head from work and provide enjoyment through good food and conversation. If you're go, go, go all day at work, prioritizing family mealtime can be priceless for your daily stress management.\r\n<h2 id=\"tab10\" >Enjoying time with friends and family</h2>\r\nCommunity spirit is a large part of the Mediterranean culture and is something that's disappearing in American culture. Getting together on a regular basis with friends and family is an important priority for providing a sense of strong community and fun. The fun and laughter that come with friendly get-togethers are vital for stress management. Without these little joyful experiences, stress can tip to an unhealthy balance.\r\n\r\nTo put this strategy into practice, invite some of your close family and friends over each week, perhaps for dinner. It can be as casual as you like. The important thing is to add this type of fun and enjoyment to your life more often.\r\n<h2 id=\"tab11\" >Having a strong passion for life</h2>\r\nThe Mediterranean coast is full of sunshine, good food, and beautiful surroundings, so the people who live there naturally tend to have a strong passion for life, family, friends, nature, and food. Choosing to have a strong passion and love of life is associated with more happiness and fulfillment and less stress.\r\n\r\nWhat are you passionate about? Perhaps you love the arts, or maybe nature is your thing. Whatever your passions are, make sure to find a way to make them a part of your life.","description":"The Mediterranean diet includes a specific balance of foods that's high in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants and contains the perfect balance of fatty acids.

Dips, valleys, and any warping means that the pan is unsuitable for cooking.</li>\n<li><strong>Surface free of discoloration, blotches, and paint spots.</strong> Discoloration and blotches indicate that the metallurgy is suspect. Paint spots may signal that the iron has been repaired with epoxy. Also be sure that the surface is free from pits, chips, cracks, and scratches.</li>\n<li><strong>Manufacturer’s logos:</strong> American-made cast iron from now-defunct companies (specifically Wagner and Griswold) are collector’s items.

By understanding what these risk factors are, you can take steps to mitigate them and prevent complications.</p>\r\n<p>For example, one of the potential side effects of many chemotherapy drugs is a reduction in a type of bone marrow cells known as <i>platelets.</i> These cells are responsible for preventing and stopping bleeding.

As a result, your doctor will likely advise you to avoid taking aspirin and similar medications while you’re receiving chemo. Be sure to closely follow your oncologist’s recommendations.</p>\r\n<p>Also, avoid drinking alcohol while receiving treatment. Alcohol can cause many adverse reaction, depending on which medications it’s paired with. For example, drinking alcohol at the same time that you’re taking <i>antiemetics</i> (medications to prevent nausea and vomiting) may cause short-term drowsiness and lead to dry mouth and dry eyes.</p>\r\n<p class=\"Remember\">Whatever you do, be honest with your doctor about your history and what medications and dietary and herbal supplements you’re taking.

This can lead to various gastrointestinal issues, including gas, bloating, and diarrhea.</p>\r\n<p>If you experience diarrhea, there’s a good chance you’ll absorb less water, electrolytes like sodium and potassium, and other nutrients like zinc.

You can do this whenever it’s your turn to play, either by drawing cards from a pile (or stock) or by picking up the card thrown away by your opponent and then discarding a card from your hand.\r\n\r\nYou can play rummy with two or more players (for six or more players, you need a second deck of cards). You'll also need a paper and pencil for scoring.

So, runs involving the ace must take the form A-2-3 or A-K-Q but not K-A-2.</p>\r\nThe first person who manages to make their whole hand into combinations one way or another, with one card remaining to discard, wins the game.\r\n<h2 id=\"tab2\" >How to play rummy</h2>\r\nFollow these rummy card game rules and instructions below to understand how to play rummy from start to finish:\r\n<ol>\r\n \t<li>Each player is dealt a certain number of cards from the deck. According to the rummy rules, 2 player game, or rummy for 3 players, each person gets 10 cards. That's also true for 4 players. When playing with five players, each player gets six cards. With more than five players, you must use two decks of cards and a hand of seven cards. The two-player game can also be played with seven cards each.</li>\r\n \t<li>Designate a scorer and a dealer at the start of the game. Then, the dealer deals out the hands and puts the undealt cards face-down on the center of the table as the stock, placing the top card, turned upward, beside the stock as the first card of the discard pile.</li>\r\n \t<li>The player to the left of the dealer plays first. They can either pick up the card on the discard pile or the top card from the stock. If they can meld some of their cards, combining them into runs or sets (as described above), they can put these down on the table. If not, they discard one card from their hand, face-up onto the discard pile, and the turn of play moves to the next player.</li>\r\n \t<li>The next player can either pick up the last card the previous player discarded or the top card from the stock. They can then meld some or all of their cards and put them down in combinations. The play continues clockwise around the table. When the stock runs out, shuffle the discard pile and set it up again.</li>\r\n</ol>\r\n<h3 id=\"mntl-sc-block_1-0-36\" class=\"comp u-how-to-title-align mntl-sc-block lifestyle-sc-block-subheading mntl-sc-block-subheading\"><span class=\"mntl-sc-block-subheading__text\">Laying Off</span></h3>\r\nA player can put down a card (or cards) on the table that fits with another player's melds already on the table. This is called <em>laying off</em>. The player who is laying off places the card on the table where they are sitting. As an example, if Player A has put down a meld that has three sevens, Player B could put down a seven from their hand.\r\n<h2 id=\"tab3\" >Other rules of rummy and tips</h2>\r\nNow that you know the objective of the game and the basic instructions to play, here is a small list of other official rules of rummy, and common tips to abide by:\r\n<ul>\r\n \t<li>You cannot pick up the top discard and then throw the card back onto the pile.</li>\r\n \t<li>If you pick up two cards from the stock by accident and see either of them, you must put the bottom card back, which gives the next player an additional option. They can look at the returned card and take it if they want it. If they don't want it, they put it back into the middle of the stock and continue with their turn by taking the next card from the stock.</li>\r\n \t<li>When you pick up a card from the stock that you don’t want, don’t throw it away immediately. Put the card into your hand and then extract it. No player, regardless of skill level, needs to give gratuitous information away.</li>\r\n</ul>\r\n<p class=\"article-tips tip\">Once you've mastered the game of rummy, you might want to try the slightly more interesting and challenging <a href=\"//coursofppt.com/article/home-auto-hobbies/games/card-games/general-card-games/how-to-play-gin-rummy-193767/\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\">gin rummy</a>.</p>\r\n\r\n<h2 id=\"tab4\" >Rummying with wild cards</h2>\r\nYou can play rummy with wild cards by adding jokers to the deck, or you can make the 2s or some other number wild.\r\n\r\nYou can substitute the card represented by a wild card when it is your turn to play. So, if a combination including a joker, standing in for the king of clubs is put on the table, the next player can put in the king of clubs and pick up the joker for use elsewhere.\r\n\r\nIf you put down two 8s and a joker, you do not have to announce which 8 the joker represents, but with a run, such as 5-6-joker, the assumption is that the joker represents the 7.\r\n<p class=\"article-tips tip\">When playing with wild cards, you may not want to put combinations containing wild cards down immediately; you don’t want to give another player the use of a wild card by way of the substitution. Of course, if you feel obliged to put down the set or run, try to ensure that the card your wild card replaces has already been played in some other set or run.</p>\r\n\r\n<h2 id=\"tab5\" >Going out and tallying your score</h2>\r\nThe first player to be able to put seven of the eight cards in their hand into combinations (including the card that they pick up in their current turn), or ten of their 11 cards, as the case may be, <em>goes out</em> (places all their cards on the table) and wins. You discard your remaining card as you go out, usually having made the others into one combination of four and one combination of three.\r\n\r\nYou do not have to make the plays at one turn; you may have put down some cards into sets already, of course. If your last two cards are two 7s, and you pick up a third 7, most people play that you can go out by making a set, without needing a final discard.\r\n\r\nThe winner collects points from all the other players. They base their point total on the remaining cards in the other players’ hands, regardless of whether the cards make up completed combinations or not — which is a good reason to put down melds as soon as you get them.\r\n\r\nThe players put their cards face-up on the table and call out how many points they have left for the winner. You score the cards according to the following scale:\r\n<ul>\r\n \t<li><strong>2s through 10s</strong> get their face value, meaning, for example, that a 5 is worth 5 points.</li>\r\n \t<li><strong>Jacks, queens, and kings</strong> receive 10 points apiece.</li>\r\n \t<li><strong>Wild cards</strong> cost you 15 points each, if you are playing with them.</li>\r\n \t<li><strong>Aces,</strong> in keeping with their lowly status during the game, charge you 1 point only.</li>\r\n</ul>\r\nFor example, if you’re left holding ♠K, ♦K, ♦Q, and ♣A at the end of the game, the winner of the game scores 31 points. With more than two players, the winner cumulates the points from all the other players.\r\n<p class=\"article-tips remember\">Laying all your cards down in one turn is called <em>going rummy</em>, which doubles your score; obviously, the availability of this bonus affects your decision to put down combinations earlier rather than later. If you think that you can claim this bonus, you may want to delay putting down your combinations.</p>\r\nThe first player to score 100 points is the winner. For a longer game, you can play to 250 points.\r\n<h2 id=\"tab6\" >Simple rummy strategy</h2>\r\nWhen you first start playing rummy, you may find that putting your cards into combinations is quite challenging. The best strategy is to aim for melds that have the best chance for completion.\r\n\r\nThe cards in your hand and on the table give you information about your chances for completing certain combinations. For example, if you can keep only two cards from the ♠7, ♠8, and ♣8, and you’ve already used the ♦8 in another run, you should keep the spades because you have two chances for success this way — the ♠6 or the ♠9. Keeping the two 8s gives you only one possible draw, the ♥8.\r\n\r\nAnother typical problem is knowing when to break up a pair in order to increase your chances elsewhere. For example, imagine that you have to discard from a collection such as the one shown in the figure below.\r\n\r\n[caption id=\"attachment_298739\" align=\"alignnone\" width=\"406\"]<img class=\"size-full wp-image-298739\" src=\"//coursofppt.com/wp-content/uploads/rummy-game-cards-pair.jpg\" alt=\"Illustration of a rummy hand: four of spades, four of hearts, eight of hearts, eight of diamonds, and ten of hearts.\" width=\"406\" height=\"261\" /> ©John Wiley & Sons, Inc.<br />Time to choose or lose.[/caption]\r\n\r\nThe solution to this problem is to throw the ♥10 away. Keeping your two pairs gives you a reasonable chance to make three of a kind, and the ♥10 gives you only a single chance of making a combination — by drawing the ♥9.\r\n\r\nIn general, you don’t want to split up your pairs. But life (or at least Rummy) isn’t always so simple. Suppose that you have the cards shown in the figure below.\r\n\r\n[caption id=\"attachment_298740\" align=\"alignnone\" width=\"406\"]<img class=\"size-full wp-image-298740\" src=\"//coursofppt.com/wp-content/uploads/rummy-game-cards-illustration.jpg\" alt=\"Illustration of a rummy hand: four of spades, four of hearts, eight of hearts, eight of diamonds, and ten of hearts.\" width=\"406\" height=\"261\" /> ©John Wiley & Sons, Inc.<br />Dismantle a pair and perhaps draw a building card.[/caption]\r\n\r\nIf you need to throw out one card, throw a 4 away. The ♠7 is a useful <em>building card</em>, meaning that it fits well with the ♠8; mathematics says that the nest of 7s and 8s gives you four possible cards with which to make a combination (the ♠9, ♠6, ♣8,\r\nand ♥8).\r\n\r\nYou have the same number of options if you throw the ♠7 away and keep the two pairs. But the real merit in throwing away one of the 4s is the degree of freedom you attain for a future discard. By throwing one 4 away, you allow yourself to pick up another potentially useful building card (such as the ♠7) at your next turn, and then you can throw away the other 4. By contrast, throwing away the ♠7 <em>fixes</em> your hand and gives you no flexibility.\r\n<p class=\"article-tips tip\">The odds favor your draw to the run rather than your hopes for a set. When you make a run, you can build on it at either end. A set, on the other hand, has only one possible draw. For this reason, be careful about which cards you discard. If you must give your opponent a useful card, try to let them have the sets of three or four of a kind instead of helping them build their runs.</p>\r\n\r\n<h2 id=\"tab7\" >Keeping your eye on the discard pile</h2>\r\nYou can’t go through a game of rummy thinking only about the cards in your hand — you also need to watch the cards thrown into the discard pile. Monitoring the discard pile helps you keep track of whether the cards you’re hoping to pick up have already been thrown away.\r\n\r\nFor example, if you have to keep two cards from the ♠7, ♠8, and ♣8, consider whether the ♠6, ♠9, or ♥8 has already been discarded. If both spades have already gone, you have no chance of picking them up — at least not until you work your way through the entire stock, at which point you may get a second chance at the cards when the deck is reshuffled. In such a stuck position, you should settle for a realistic chance, however slim, of picking up the last 8 by discarding the ♠7.\r\nTry to avoid <em>drawing to an inside run</em> — keeping, for example, a 3 and a 5 in the hopes of drawing the 4. Holding onto <em>builders</em> (cards that may be helpful elsewhere) is better than relying on a single card.\r\n<p class=\"article-tips remember\">You can’t review the discard pile for clues. You have to remember which cards were thrown away — or be very adept at taking stealthy peeks at the discarded evidence!</p>\r\n\r\n<h2 id=\"tab8\" >Thinking about your opponents’ hands</h2>\r\nContemplating what your opponent has in their hand helps you make smarter choices about what cards you should discard. After all, you don’t want to throw away that ♥K if your opponent can use it to complete a run with the ♥Q and ♥J.\r\n<p id=\"summary\">You compile a picture of your opponent’s hand by reading the negative and positive messages you get from their plays. For example, if you see your opponent throw away the ♥Q, you can be sure that they aren’t collecting queens. That information in itself doesn’t make discarding any queen safe, however, because they may be collecting high diamonds.

Here, we'll walk you through the basics, including rules, scoring, and strategies to win.</p>\t\r\n<h3>Objective of rummy</h3>\t\r\n<ul class=\"summary-list\">\r\n \t<li><p>The goal of rummy is to create combinations of cards in two main categories: runs and sets (or books).</p></li>\r\n \t<li><p>Runs: These consist of consecutive sequences of three or more cards of the same suit.</p></li>\r\n \t<li><p>Sets (books): Sets are comprised of three or four cards of the same rank. When using two decks, a set can include two identical cards of the same rank and suit.</p></li>\r\n</ul>\t\r\n<h3>Basic rules of rummy</h3>\r\n<ul class=\"summary-list\">\r\n \t<li><p>Dealing: The number of cards dealt varies based on the number of players. In games with 2 to 4 players, each player receives 10 cards, while 5 or more players require two decks, and each player gets 7 cards.</p></li>\r\n \t<li><p>Setup: Designate a scorer and a dealer. The remaining cards form the stock, with the top card placed face-up beside it as the discard pile.</p></li>\r\n \t<li><p>Gameplay: Players take turns clockwise. On their turn, they can draw a card from the discard pile or the stock. If possible, they can lay down combinations (runs or sets) on the table. Otherwise, they must discard a card onto the discard pile.</p></li>\r\n \t<li><p>Laying off: Players can add cards to existing combinations on the table, a move called \"laying off.\" For example, if a player has three sevens on the table, another player can put down the fourth seven from their hand.</p></li>\r\n</ul>\t\r\n<h3>Additional rules and tips</h3>\t\r\n<ul class=\"summary-list\">\r\n \t<li><p>You can't pick up a discarded card and immediately throw it back.</p></li>\r\n \t<li><p>If you accidentally pick up two stock cards and see either, put the bottom card back for the next player.</p></li>\r\n \t<li><p>If you don’t want a card you’ve just picked up from the stock, don’t throw it away immediately. Place the card in your hand, and then extract it. This prevents other players from knowing whether you kept that card.</p></li>\r\n \t<li><p>When playing with wild cards, like jokers, they can substitute any card.</p></li>\r\n</ul>\t\r\n<h3>Scoring and winning</h2>\t\r\n<ul class=\"summary-list\">\r\n \t<li><p>The first player to be able to put all of their cards into combinations on the table and discard their remaining card goes out, and wins the game. You play several games until one player reaches 100 points and wins. You can also play a longer game to 250 points.</p></li>\r\n \t<li><p>Points are based on card values: 2-10 cards are worth face value, face cards (Jacks, Queens, Kings) are 10 points, wild cards are 15 points each, and Aces are 1 point.</p></li>\r\n \t<li><p>Going out in one turn (\"going rummy\") doubles your score.</p></li>\r\n \t<li><p>Players tally their points based on their remaining cards, and the winner collects points from others.</p></li>\r\n</ul>\t\r\n<h3>Strategy in Rummy</h3>\r\n<ul class=\"summary-list\">\r\n \t<li><p>Aim for melds with the best chance of completion.</p></li>\r\n \t<li><p>Consider the cards in your hand and on the table when deciding which cards to keep or discard.</p></li>\r\n \t<li><p>Prioritize runs over sets, as they offer more opportunities for expansion.</p></li>\r\n \t<li><p>Be cautious about giving your opponents useful cards.</p></li>\r\n\t<li><p>Monitor the discard pile to gauge which cards have been discarded.</p></li>\r\n\t<li><p>Think about your opponents' possible combinations based on their plays.</p></li>\r\n</ul>\t\r\n<p>Rummy is a game of strategy, skill, and observation.

So, runs involving the ace must take the form A-2-3 or A-K-Q but not K-A-2.</p>\r\nThe first person who manages to make their whole hand into combinations one way or another, with one card remaining to discard, wins the game.\r\n<h2 id=\"tab2\" >How to play rummy</h2>\r\nFollow these rummy card game rules and instructions below to understand how to play rummy from start to finish:\r\n<ol>\r\n \t<li>Each player is dealt a certain number of cards from the deck. According to the rummy rules, 2 player game, or rummy for 3 players, each person gets 10 cards. That's also true for 4 players. When playing with five players, each player gets six cards. With more than five players, you must use two decks of cards and a hand of seven cards. The two-player game can also be played with seven cards each.</li>\r\n \t<li>Designate a scorer and a dealer at the start of the game. Then, the dealer deals out the hands and puts the undealt cards face-down on the center of the table as the stock, placing the top card, turned upward, beside the stock as the first card of the discard pile.</li>\r\n \t<li>The player to the left of the dealer plays first. They can either pick up the card on the discard pile or the top card from the stock. If they can meld some of their cards, combining them into runs or sets (as described above), they can put these down on the table. If not, they discard one card from their hand, face-up onto the discard pile, and the turn of play moves to the next player.</li>\r\n \t<li>The next player can either pick up the last card the previous player discarded or the top card from the stock. They can then meld some or all of their cards and put them down in combinations. The play continues clockwise around the table. When the stock runs out, shuffle the discard pile and set it up again.</li>\r\n</ol>\r\n<h3 id=\"mntl-sc-block_1-0-36\" class=\"comp u-how-to-title-align mntl-sc-block lifestyle-sc-block-subheading mntl-sc-block-subheading\"><span class=\"mntl-sc-block-subheading__text\">Laying Off</span></h3>\r\nA player can put down a card (or cards) on the table that fits with another player's melds already on the table. This is called <em>laying off</em>. The player who is laying off places the card on the table where they are sitting. As an example, if Player A has put down a meld that has three sevens, Player B could put down a seven from their hand.\r\n<h2 id=\"tab3\" >Other rules of rummy and tips</h2>\r\nNow that you know the objective of the game and the basic instructions to play, here is a small list of other official rules of rummy, and common tips to abide by:\r\n<ul>\r\n \t<li>You cannot pick up the top discard and then throw the card back onto the pile.</li>\r\n \t<li>If you pick up two cards from the stock by accident and see either of them, you must put the bottom card back, which gives the next player an additional option. They can look at the returned card and take it if they want it. If they don't want it, they put it back into the middle of the stock and continue with their turn by taking the next card from the stock.</li>\r\n \t<li>When you pick up a card from the stock that you don’t want, don’t throw it away immediately. Put the card into your hand and then extract it. No player, regardless of skill level, needs to give gratuitous information away.</li>\r\n</ul>\r\n<p class=\"article-tips tip\">Once you've mastered the game of rummy, you might want to try the slightly more interesting and challenging <a href=\"//coursofppt.com/article/home-auto-hobbies/games/card-games/general-card-games/how-to-play-gin-rummy-193767/\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\">gin rummy</a>.</p>\r\n\r\n<h2 id=\"tab4\" >Rummying with wild cards</h2>\r\nYou can play rummy with wild cards by adding jokers to the deck, or you can make the 2s or some other number wild.\r\n\r\nYou can substitute the card represented by a wild card when it is your turn to play. So, if a combination including a joker, standing in for the king of clubs is put on the table, the next player can put in the king of clubs and pick up the joker for use elsewhere.\r\n\r\nIf you put down two 8s and a joker, you do not have to announce which 8 the joker represents, but with a run, such as 5-6-joker, the assumption is that the joker represents the 7.\r\n<p class=\"article-tips tip\">When playing with wild cards, you may not want to put combinations containing wild cards down immediately; you don’t want to give another player the use of a wild card by way of the substitution. Of course, if you feel obliged to put down the set or run, try to ensure that the card your wild card replaces has already been played in some other set or run.</p>\r\n\r\n<h2 id=\"tab5\" >Going out and tallying your score</h2>\r\nThe first player to be able to put seven of the eight cards in their hand into combinations (including the card that they pick up in their current turn), or ten of their 11 cards, as the case may be, <em>goes out</em> (places all their cards on the table) and wins. You discard your remaining card as you go out, usually having made the others into one combination of four and one combination of three.\r\n\r\nYou do not have to make the plays at one turn; you may have put down some cards into sets already, of course. If your last two cards are two 7s, and you pick up a third 7, most people play that you can go out by making a set, without needing a final discard.\r\n\r\nThe winner collects points from all the other players. They base their point total on the remaining cards in the other players’ hands, regardless of whether the cards make up completed combinations or not — which is a good reason to put down melds as soon as you get them.\r\n\r\nThe players put their cards face-up on the table and call out how many points they have left for the winner. You score the cards according to the following scale:\r\n<ul>\r\n \t<li><strong>2s through 10s</strong> get their face value, meaning, for example, that a 5 is worth 5 points.</li>\r\n \t<li><strong>Jacks, queens, and kings</strong> receive 10 points apiece.</li>\r\n \t<li><strong>Wild cards</strong> cost you 15 points each, if you are playing with them.</li>\r\n \t<li><strong>Aces,</strong> in keeping with their lowly status during the game, charge you 1 point only.</li>\r\n</ul>\r\nFor example, if you’re left holding ♠K, ♦K, ♦Q, and ♣A at the end of the game, the winner of the game scores 31 points. With more than two players, the winner cumulates the points from all the other players.\r\n<p class=\"article-tips remember\">Laying all your cards down in one turn is called <em>going rummy</em>, which doubles your score; obviously, the availability of this bonus affects your decision to put down combinations earlier rather than later. If you think that you can claim this bonus, you may want to delay putting down your combinations.</p>\r\nThe first player to score 100 points is the winner. For a longer game, you can play to 250 points.\r\n<h2 id=\"tab6\" >Simple rummy strategy</h2>\r\nWhen you first start playing rummy, you may find that putting your cards into combinations is quite challenging. The best strategy is to aim for melds that have the best chance for completion.\r\n\r\nThe cards in your hand and on the table give you information about your chances for completing certain combinations. For example, if you can keep only two cards from the ♠7, ♠8, and ♣8, and you’ve already used the ♦8 in another run, you should keep the spades because you have two chances for success this way — the ♠6 or the ♠9. Keeping the two 8s gives you only one possible draw, the ♥8.\r\n\r\nAnother typical problem is knowing when to break up a pair in order to increase your chances elsewhere. For example, imagine that you have to discard from a collection such as the one shown in the figure below.\r\n\r\n[caption id=\"attachment_298739\" align=\"alignnone\" width=\"406\"]<img class=\"size-full wp-image-298739\" src=\"//coursofppt.com/wp-content/uploads/rummy-game-cards-pair.jpg\" alt=\"Illustration of a rummy hand: four of spades, four of hearts, eight of hearts, eight of diamonds, and ten of hearts.\" width=\"406\" height=\"261\" /> ©John Wiley & Sons, Inc.<br />Time to choose or lose.[/caption]\r\n\r\nThe solution to this problem is to throw the ♥10 away. Keeping your two pairs gives you a reasonable chance to make three of a kind, and the ♥10 gives you only a single chance of making a combination — by drawing the ♥9.\r\n\r\nIn general, you don’t want to split up your pairs. But life (or at least Rummy) isn’t always so simple. Suppose that you have the cards shown in the figure below.\r\n\r\n[caption id=\"attachment_298740\" align=\"alignnone\" width=\"406\"]<img class=\"size-full wp-image-298740\" src=\"//coursofppt.com/wp-content/uploads/rummy-game-cards-illustration.jpg\" alt=\"Illustration of a rummy hand: four of spades, four of hearts, eight of hearts, eight of diamonds, and ten of hearts.\" width=\"406\" height=\"261\" /> ©John Wiley & Sons, Inc.<br />Dismantle a pair and perhaps draw a building card.[/caption]\r\n\r\nIf you need to throw out one card, throw a 4 away. The ♠7 is a useful <em>building card</em>, meaning that it fits well with the ♠8; mathematics says that the nest of 7s and 8s gives you four possible cards with which to make a combination (the ♠9, ♠6, ♣8,\r\nand ♥8).\r\n\r\nYou have the same number of options if you throw the ♠7 away and keep the two pairs. But the real merit in throwing away one of the 4s is the degree of freedom you attain for a future discard. By throwing one 4 away, you allow yourself to pick up another potentially useful building card (such as the ♠7) at your next turn, and then you can throw away the other 4. By contrast, throwing away the ♠7 <em>fixes</em> your hand and gives you no flexibility.\r\n<p class=\"article-tips tip\">The odds favor your draw to the run rather than your hopes for a set. When you make a run, you can build on it at either end. A set, on the other hand, has only one possible draw. For this reason, be careful about which cards you discard. If you must give your opponent a useful card, try to let them have the sets of three or four of a kind instead of helping them build their runs.</p>\r\n\r\n<h2 id=\"tab7\" >Keeping your eye on the discard pile</h2>\r\nYou can’t go through a game of rummy thinking only about the cards in your hand — you also need to watch the cards thrown into the discard pile. Monitoring the discard pile helps you keep track of whether the cards you’re hoping to pick up have already been thrown away.\r\n\r\nFor example, if you have to keep two cards from the ♠7, ♠8, and ♣8, consider whether the ♠6, ♠9, or ♥8 has already been discarded. If both spades have already gone, you have no chance of picking them up — at least not until you work your way through the entire stock, at which point you may get a second chance at the cards when the deck is reshuffled. In such a stuck position, you should settle for a realistic chance, however slim, of picking up the last 8 by discarding the ♠7.\r\nTry to avoid <em>drawing to an inside run</em> — keeping, for example, a 3 and a 5 in the hopes of drawing the 4. Holding onto <em>builders</em> (cards that may be helpful elsewhere) is better than relying on a single card.\r\n<p class=\"article-tips remember\">You can’t review the discard pile for clues. You have to remember which cards were thrown away — or be very adept at taking stealthy peeks at the discarded evidence!</p>\r\n\r\n<h2 id=\"tab8\" >Thinking about your opponents’ hands</h2>\r\nContemplating what your opponent has in their hand helps you make smarter choices about what cards you should discard. After all, you don’t want to throw away that ♥K if your opponent can use it to complete a run with the ♥Q and ♥J.\r\n<p id=\"summary\">You compile a picture of your opponent’s hand by reading the negative and positive messages you get from their plays. For example, if you see your opponent throw away the ♥Q, you can be sure that they aren’t collecting queens. That information in itself doesn’t make discarding any queen safe, however, because they may be collecting high diamonds. But if do you subsequently throw down the ♥Q, and they pick it up, their action provides you with an informative message; you can safely infer that they are collecting high diamonds.</p>\r\n\r\n<div class=\"summary-container\" data-testid=\"summarySection\">\r\n<div class=\"wrapper\">\r\n<div class=\"image-block\" data-testid=\"imageBlock\"></div>\r\n<div class=\"details-block\">\r\n<h2 id=\"tab9\" >Quick Read Summary</h2>\r\n<p>Rummy is an engaging card game that challenges players to enhance their initial hand.
