Here’s one for when you’re dealt two 9′s. Any number times 9 can have its digits summed to a value of 9, making it possible to capture the stack with your second nine (or if you have other cards you can play from a 9 with). For example, you could take all the cards not yet built upon on the field and put them together in a stack and say their combined values were 17. 17 times 9 is 153. 1+5+3 is 9 so summing the digits lets you build on a stack of 9. This is an easy way to try and get many cards into a stack you can capture.
