I was trying to find this out too and learned that the game we called Michigan Rummy with different goals for each hand is really called Contract Rummy. If you search on that name you may find more information like I did. I don't know about eleven hands, but I remember the following sequences with sets consisting of 3 cards of the same rank/value (all 3's, all Jacks, etc); runs consisting of 4 cards of the same suit in consecutive order; aces count as 1's. 1. Two Sets 2. One Set, One Run 3. Two Runs 4. Three Sets 5. Two Sets, One Run 6. One Set, Two Runs 7. Three Runs. We usually only went to #6 and called that hand "Mr. Perfect", meaning you needed to have no discard when you laid down that last hand. Hope this helps.
