101 Pool Rummy :

this type of variation of the game has the elimination element in each offer. The game continues for many deals until all players are eliminated by crossing 101 points. Losing players are based on the value of unmatched cards at the end of each offer. When a player crosses 101 points, he is eliminated from the game and the player who survives to the end is declared the winner.

201 Pool Rummy :

the 201 Pool Rummy game is similar to 101 Pool Rummy, where players are eliminated when they cross 201 points. The player who does it until the end, without accumulating 201 points, wins the game.

Ace in Rummy:

Four aces are used in a standard deck of 52 cards in rummy. They appear in the different clubs of clubs, diamonds, hearts, and swords. The aces can be used to form a sequence of lower value such as Ace two three or can be used to form a sequence with high cards such as Ace, King, and Queen. The points carried by each ace are 10; and, if a Printed Joker is selected as Wild Joker, then the Aces act as Fucking Wilds along with the Printed Joker.
