Correct on claiming the Jack for two points when it is turned over as the starter card and you are the dealer. Now there are a lot of things that are going to happen between now and when you get to count your hand. You MIGHT not even get to count your hand if your opponent goes out! Anyway do you also count the pegs that you made as part of your hand? Let's say that They lead a 10 you play a 5 for 2 points, they play a 6 to 21, you play a 5, they say go and you play another 5 for 31 for 4 points. Then they play another 10 and you play another 5 for another two points. Do you get to say that your hand is now worth 6 points of pegging 2 for the jack and 28 in your hand for a total of 36 points? No you don't. Each of these are separate parts of cribbage and are NOT scored together. Hands are only worth what they are scored when you count your hand. Pegging, nobs and nibs are completely different and are NOT part of your hand. Only your hand is counted as your hand. Your total holes that you moved down a board might be 30, or even more, but the count of your hand is only 28 and cannot exceed 29.
5+5+5 equals ? This is probably one of the most miscounted hands in all of cribbage. You have 21 points here, not 19. 3 fives and two face cards always scores AT LEAST 20 points.
J,Q,Q,K then cut a K no nobs
Double double run of three for 16?
Hi
4 player game, players 1 & 3 have played out their cards. Player 2 plays last card ( a 5), player 4 plays a 5  10 for 2, then play their last card, also a 5, 15 for 2 plus 6 for the 3 x 5s, do you also get a point for it being the last card? We were told no as the last card was played on a scoring number (15), they stated its the same as finishing on 31?
Hope that makes sense!!
There is not actually such a thing as a "double run". This is just a convenient way to explain the counting of that type of sequence for example 2C,2H,3,4 is really scored:
Run 2C, 3, 4 for 3
Run 2H, 3, 4 for 3
Pair of 2's for 2
Total of 8, since this always equals 8 it is easier to say Double Run for 8.
So if it is a four card run...Add an Ace
It is
Run 1, 2C, 3, 4 for 4 it can't be broken up as 1, 2, 3 and 2, 3, 4 for 6
Run 1, 2H, 3, 4 for 4
Pair of 2's for 2
Total 10 points.
Only if the total points since the last go was 15 would you score 15 for 2.
Tell her she is right, but she did not count the pair of 7s for 2 points.
I had a 2244 in my hand. the turnover card was 3. What is my score.
3333 6 how do you score this hand
You are dealt:
5 of diamonds
5 of clubs
5 of hearts
Jack of hearts
The cut card is: 10 of hearts
That would be 19
5 in a line with no Aces or Faces is always 9
Any uninterrupted sequence of 3 or more connecting cards scores one point for each card. Your example would score 3 points. It is important to remember that Kings and Aces are at the end of their line. You cannot 'wraparound' and use an Ace with King. Kings can only be used in runs with Queens and Aces can only be used in runs containing a 2.
Your rules are kitchen cribbage rules. There is nothing in any rule book that says you cannot go out if you are in the stink hole. You should have scored and won the game.
Renegging is a penalty of 2 points for each card you COULD have played, plus forfeit of any points you were ABLE to score while pegging using the cards you should have played. www.cribbage.org for more info
That is correct, she gets a total of 6 points exactly as you described.
Here is the scoring in this sequence.
P16=0
P26=2 for pair
P13=2 for 15
P24=0
P12=3 for run
P2A=4 for run
P14=0
P25=2 for 31
Hope that helps
Flushes are only scored while you count hands, not while pegging. Rules can be found at www.cribbage.org
the 4 does not help you.
Three different pair of 3s + the 9 = three 15s for 6.
The three different pair of 3 equal 6 in pairs.
Total 12.
In your hand you must be holding 4 of the same suit for a 4 card flush. Five if the up card too. In the crib is must be all five for the flush.
8 + three 7s is 15 for 6
Three pair of 7s plus the ace with each one is 15 for 6
The pair of 7s is 2 pts each for 6
Total 18.
Where might the 24 come from? Did I miss something?
Two 6s + the 3 = 15 for 2
Two other 6s + the 3 = 15 for 2
The last two 6s + the 3 = 15 for 2
Three 6s is three pair of 6s for 2 pts each.
Total 12 pts.
3 + two aces, 3 + two other aces, 3 + the last two aces all constitute 5s. Each going with the jack makes 15 for 2 three times for 6 pts.
The 3 aces make 3 separate pair of aces for 6 pts for a total of 12 pts.
While they are played in a disjointed order these cards: 2,3,4,5,6,7 constitute a 6 card run. Never seen that one before. Congratulations.
You get 30 points indeed. But you don't get to say you have a 30point hand.
You have for 5's.
When the Jack is turned, you score 2 points for His Heels.
Then you play and peg.
Then everyone counts their hand.
As dealer, you count your hand last, and your hand is worth 28 points.
So you did score 30 points total. But the hand itself is 28.
Yes!
4+4+4+3=15 for 2, there are 4 ways of doing this so 8 points
Double pairs royal (6 distinct pairs of 4's) make 12 points.
