To be adjudged as the winner in online Rummy, a player needs to declare his hand by submitting the same to the group for validation. This act is also called as a “show.” Let us now look into the points constituting valid and invalid declarations.

Valid and invalid declaration summary:

  • A valid declaration should have a formation of at least two sequences, one of which should be a pure run and the remaining cards can be formed into sets or sequences.
  • A formation without a pure life is called as invalid declaration even if it is arranged with sequences and sets in the manner of 4,3,3 and 3.
  • Even if you achieve a pure life, still it cannot be called a valid declaration in case there is no presence of one more life.
  • A set cannot have more than four cards. If a wild or printed joker is added as a fifth card will make it a wrong declaration. So, a joker can be added only as a fourth card.
  • A set cannot have more than one card of the same suit.
  • If a wild card selected happens to be a printed joker, then declaration is valid if A of any suit is used as a joker in forming a group.
