A rummy player must be well-equipped in bluffing and dodging their online opponents. It is a fact that most professional players win the game because they play on their opponents rather than playing on their cards. This implies that you can change your rummy strategy based on the moves of your opponents. Also, you give your opponent the impression that you have good set of cards.
In order to master the art of fooling your opponent it requires a lot of practice both online and offline. Below listed here are some of the ways a player can fool his opponent for easy win just like the professional rummy players.
Technique: Discarding Cards
The Discard technique always work for those who just need a card to complete a pure sequence. For instance, if you have 7, 8 and 10 and you need 9, the rummy strategy is to discard either 7 or 10 to give your opponent an impression that you are not making any sequence with that. In this case, your opponent will discard number 9 which will complete your sequence. This technique needs to be practiced first in offline mode and late on freerolls before moving towards cash rummy tables.
Discard Section in Online Rummy
This section in the game reveals your opponent’s discarded cards through which you can get a clear picture on what set or sequence your opponent is trying to create. This trick, too, requires a lot of practice as your opponent might be trying to fool you at the same time. This feature also allows you to discard your cards that your opponent can no longer use it to complete their melds. With this, the game can run longer and you can get enough time to complete your sets or sequence or declare the game before your opponent.
Bluff technique is definitely yours, if you have successfully analysed your opponent’s moves and you are 100% sure that your opponent does not have a good card. To analyse, keep an eye on their discards and picks. If your opponent is picking too many cards from closed deck instead of discard section, then it is clear that he or she does not have a great hand and still searching for the required cards. If the similar situation is faced by you, bluff your opponent by picking one or two cards to make him think that you are having a good hand. This move can make your opponent quit or drop out from the game thereby making you a winner.
