Rummy Strategy | Pick Unwanted Cards
In the game of rummy, one of the main factors affecting the game outcome is the hand you are dealt. Sometimes you are lucky and get multiple Jokers to finish the game in just one or two moves but sometimes it can go against you, too. In order to win in a game of Indian Rummy, you need to form at least one pure sequence, i.e. a sequence without wild cards/Jokers. As your opponents will try hard not to discard any cards that might help you form a sequence, you can counter them with some tricks that can make them revise their game strategy.
One of the common strategies that can make your opponents change or reverse their strategy is to pick unwanted cards. In order to use this trick, you should be very confident about the cards in your hand and should also be aware of what your opponents are discarding and picking from the open deck. Picking an unwanted card can make your opponents think that you are creating a different set/sequence, thereby making them change their whole game plan. As a result, they might even discard a card very useful to you, allowing you to complete your meld.
