how do you score this

Well me and my fellow cribbage player have played by his rules for a while can anyone tell me how to score this hand: 9 starter and AA68 for me i think it would be 12 he said 8 help me before i go insane on this particular hand and quickly there is not much time for me.

9, A, A, 6, 8

The correct score for this hand is 8. Three 15s and a pair for 8.

How do you score this?

the score is 8:

9+6= 15 two
8+A+6=15 four
8+(second)A + 6= 15 six
pair of Aces= 2
Total is eight
