Liverpool Rummy is played by dealing cards to each player. A dealer deals ten or twelve cards to each player, face-down and from left to right. The cards are kept in a central location called the stock pile. Its value is determined by the number of cards that each player has and can reduce. A set is a group of three or more cards of the same rank, while a run is four cards in numerical sequence.
