- Getting the cards that you require:
As an experienced online Rummy player, you can push your opponents to discard the cards that you want. If you are looking for a Queen of hearts or a diamond to form a set, with you already having the Queen of clubs and spades, you can choose to discard the King of hearts. When you do so, your opponent may be discarding the Queen of hearts thinking that you are not forming any sequence with it, unaware of your intention. You can thus pick up the card and form the sequence easily.

If you leave any clue for him to gauge that, you are never going to get the cards as your adversary will deny you the opportunity to form the sequence. So how should you try maintaining the secrecy? Well, one way of dealing with this situation is to pick up unwanted cards from the open deck. This will mislead your opponents to think that you are planning to make a sequence with those cards. Because of this confusion, he may in turn discard the ones which are useful to you. But hang on – when you are picking up a random card to confuse your opponent, just be sure the ones that you picked carry only lesser points so that even when your opponent declare, you will be losing only with fewer points.
