if player 1 is out of cards and I have 2 jacks after a 'go' do I get the points for paring myself?
I once played 4 aces for 31 in a game of fourhanded cribbage. How can you possibly do it in twohanded cribbage?
This is not total score per deal, but just the points you get from scoring one hand  4 cards plus the upcard  for combinations (2 for each 15, 2 for each pair, 1 point per card for a run or 45 card flush, 1 for the jack of the upcard suit). It doesn't include points pegged during the count to 31 or the dealer's crib (which is a whole extra hand to score), so your actual score for the deal will average higher.
It's also not a statistical sample but the average score over every possible cribbage hand.
You have one too many cards in your hand for cribbage you should only have 4 in your hand because you have to put two in the crib.
Multiple (Double, Triple, etc.) Runs in play are not counted. In your example Pone holds 4,4,5,4 and Dealer holds 2,3,1,2. Since total of all cards is 25 they will all be played before reaching 31. In the order you specified that the cards are played, the scoring would be as follows: 4 (no points); 4,2 (no points); 4,2,4 (no Points); 4,2,4,3 (3points{2,3,4}) for Dealer); 4,2,4,3,5 (4points{2,3,4,5}) for Pone; 4,2,4,3,5,1 (5points{1,2,3,4,5}) for Dealer; 4,2,4,3,5,1,4 (no points); and finally 4,2,4,3,5,1,4,2 (6points{1,2,3,4,5}+Last Card) for Dealer. In total, Dealer scores 14, which is very good and Pone scores 4, which is above average.
Cn you end the game on a go ?
Lucky you. You counted it correctly

Yes you were
This is what we call kitchen cribbage. You can make whatever rules you want. Make your wife wear boots, and you wear a skirt while playing it doesn't matter. These are not 'real' rules of cribbage and are made up. I answer to your question though, the two points for the pair are scored before the Go. Peg out and win the game. Real rules can be found at www.cribbage.org
I am assuming that you are talking about the act of pegging, or the 'play', the answer is yes, if the last card played also equals 15 then you get two for the 15 and one for the final Go. Remember that a Go is when no other player can play a card closer to 31 than the one that you have played regardless of when this happens.
Yes, hitting 31 exactly while ending in a 3card run would be five points. Great pegging!
I believe so, C may also get points for completing a run or double.

Yes, the last three cards at this point are 765 so that is a new run of three.
Yes, both runs are counted. Points are scored each time a card has been played.
Not sure what you are asking about Peter. There is nothing in this thread about the hand you described.
Well done. Yes it is 28. The J5 combinations make 8 pts. The 555 combination for 15 (there are 4 of them) makes 8. And the pairs is 12 pts. 28 in total.
The max score you can get is 29 when you have a similar hand except you have a Jack in your hand and a 5 is turned up (starter card), and the suits of the jack and starter card match and you get the extra point for his nobs.
In over 40 years play I have never had a 29 or a 28 so well done to you
:)
Nice hands. At least you counted them correctly.
If your starter card is an Ace, then this hand scores 18. Fifteen 12 and 3 pairs for 18.
Yes you were right. Count your 15's (4 puts), count your pairs (4pts) then count your runs (12 Pts). 20 pts. Easy
As soon as there is a desire or reason to play it. That is an oldstyle game, that like Canasta or lowball poker is no longer played because there are better games out there. I think that 5 card cribbage is only played in UK pubs. Certainly not on the competition circuit.
This actually occurs more often than you might think, because players tend to hold onto double runs of value. Probably about once ever 100 to 200 hands or so.
Sure can and does. Yes, he is allowed to lay another 5 and he scores 3 points for the run of a 765.
