2. Arrange your Cards properly
Organize your cards according to their suits and ranks. Try keeping the blacks and reds separate. It's very easy to miss cards especially with Indian card rummy (13 cards) and 21 card rummy when there are so many cards in hand.
3. Focus on forming a Pure Sequence
One major rummy tip is to focus on forming a pure sequence first. A pure sequence is one without a joker. This is specially required if you are playing Indian rummy where a pure sequence is mandatory to win the game.
4. Don’t forget the jokers and wildcards
Many players forget to use the jokers in the heat of the game. Jokers and wildcards can be used in place of any other card. If you get a joker or a wildcard, you can create combinations more easily. However, some versions of the rummy card game have a penalty for keeping the joker in hand. Depending on the type of game, try to meld the joker soon.
5. Choose Low-Value Cards
In most rummy games, the aim is to keep your points low. Even if you are losing, you should focus on reducing the points in hand because it will reduce your cash outflow. Every point makes a difference especially in games with a bigger cash amount. Try to get rid of your high value cards as soon as possible especially when you understand that you are losing. But don’t discard them at the start of the game as other players may benefit from it.
6. Keep the middle cards
Hold on the middle cards such as 5,6,7 etc. as these can form more combinations. Very low or very high cards have only a few possible combinations.
E.g., 6 can be combined with 4,5 or 5,7 or 7,8 to make runs. However, a 2 can work with Ace, 3 or a 3,4 only.
7. Observe other players
This is the oldest rummy trick in the book. Keep track of what other players are discarding (or picking up from discarded piles). This way you can guess what sequences/sets they are making. You can hold onto that card in order to reduce their chances of winning. In a rummy card game, a seasoned player also tries to prevent other players from winning easily. For example, if one player has picked up 8♥ and 10♥ then, chances are they are forming 8,9,10 and getting rid of your 9♥ will help the player.
8. Avoid the discard pile
While you are observing others, keep your own moves hidden. Avoid picking up from the discard pile unless there is a really good card. Remember, everyone is observing what cards you are picking up and trying to guess which set/run you are making. It’s better to pick up from the stockpile.
Another cool trick to win rummy is to discard in such a way that your opponent ends up discarding the cards you need. For example, you have 9 ♠, 9 ♥ and 8♣ and you want to make a set of 9s. Then you can discard the 8♣. Other players think that 9♣ now is safe to discard and you get the card you need. Tricking an opponent in rummy is called Fishing.
10. Keep practicing
The age old saying, practice makes perfect applies here too! You need to practice and play rummy card games regularly where you can practice these tricks to win rummy. Once you start playing regularly, you will find you can form strategies and apply your own rummy tricks.
