How are Skipped players handled?

I notice that players who quit the game still play cards and select rows, so I assume the game automatically chooses their cards.

How is this handled? Is it purely random which card in their hand gets selected and which row of cards they pick up, or is there a system?

From what I've observed, it's from low to high, so should be an easy practice even for beginners to outscore them the remaining distance ;)

That said though, it should be well known in these cases it makes no difference whether to continue or leave the table. The former choice would feel like time wasting for most, except maybe someone's curious how it would have ended under these artificial circumstances.

I understand that, but if it's near the end of the game I like to continue if no-one else has quit.

You say that but I have still managed to be beaten by a player that has dropped out. Sometimes you get a really bad hand and there is little you can do with it.
