For instance of there is a run of 7c, 8c, 9c you may further add 6c or 10c. The melds cannot be re-arranged in the process. During the course of turn of a player a player is also permitted to lay off a single or multiple cards at a single point of time during his turn. And a player can lay off any number of card or cards in one turn. Laying off allows a player can discard the cards by adding cards from their hand to the opponent’s existing melds by using lay off method. A player can lay off only when he has met their melds for the deal. The player should discard the final card to win the deal.
