How does the blind work in poker?

How do you play blind vs blind?
When playing blind versus blind, postflop ranges are much wider than usual. This is because the preflop ranges are much wider, which means that fewer overpairs and fewer pairs with good kickers will be made on the flop. This has a couple of postflop implications. Firstly, you should defend much wider against c-bets.

What are the rules of Rummy?
To declare rummy, a player must not have melded or laid off any cards prior during the hand. If playing with the discard rule, they must also discard after melding. If a player goes rummy when a card can be played, that player is out for that turn. Game players are still in game but the hand goes dead.
