This will smoothen your rummy journey to a great extent. Read the following points:

  • You have to meld your given cards into sequences and sets, this will include one compulsory pure sequence that doesn’t have a joker card. Anyhow make the pure sequence first.
  • After you’ve made the pure sequence, conceal it with your other cards as this will confuse your opponents and force them to make wrong moves. Try your level best to not reveal it.
  • Discard all your high-value cards at the earliest. This will help you to lose with the minimum points, in case if any opponent declares before you.
  • In the hope to form a sequence with them, never retain cards for too long.
  • If you want to drop out of the game, do so at the earliest, so as to avoid big losses. You can also abandon play before the first move is made.
  • You are not allowed to take a card from the discard pile, look at it and put it back in the same move. Hence, thoughtfully pick a card.
  • The middle value cards can be of great help when you least expect them. To make winning combinations of melds, sometimes they are even better than the high value cards.
  • While playing online rummy, you can make an impure sequence using a joker card. Hence, it is recommended to remove any/all cards that are close to the joker card in the same sequence.
  • Besides working on your cards, also focus on the cards of your opponents. Observe the cards they are picking and discarding. This will let you not discard any card that could help your opponents to make their sets or sequences.
  • Always check and recheck your cards melded into sets and sequences before declaring for a win. Players often do this in a hurry and do a wrong show, losing the match in the process.
