It can be said that there are similaritiesbetween the two in the way in which cards are combined and with bothsharing the same concepts of sequences and groups. According to JohnScarne in "Scarne On Cards" (1949), Rummy was developed from agame called "Whiskey Poker" which later became known as "RumPoker", and later just "Rum" and then finally "Rummy".Moving on a little in the History of Rummy, the most popular variant,Gin Rummy is fairly well agreed to have been invented in the early 20thCentury.It is widely believed that the history of the name “Gin Rummy” canfrom the inventors love of drinking Gin. The game became verypopular in the 1930’s and was played extensively by the famous moviestars in Hollywood as a quick game to play between filming. ONLINE RUMMY GAME BY WWW.ADDA52.COM
