If you disown high value cards by discarding them on each turn you get very less points even when you lose. So, all the four high value cards – Ace, King, Queen and Jack have to be discarded as fast as possible unless you really need them. When your opponents declare and if you are still carrying high value cards, you can use joker to form a sequence to lose with lesser points.
Rummy trick 4 – Wise usage of jokers:
