I need some urgent help in explaining whether Markov chains exist in Rummy or not. If they do not exist, what other concept can be used?

You need to explain it more. Rummy (as far as am aware of) is a card game. What is the probability involved?

Well, I was trying to find the probability of whether a sequence could be formed on the first hand itself in 13 card Rummy.

What you need to ask yourself if it there is a markov chain is "At any point in game, do I only need to know what happened in past turn or a few passed turns to know probabilities for next turn?" Essentially Markov Chains have a memoryloss property about them.
