Although I've been playing Cribbage for quite a while, but recently I met a New player who threw me off balance by "his" rule which differed from what I've always followed. Here's how it went.
He threw down a king, and then I threw down a king, so I scored for a pair. But then he threw down a five, at which point he said he scored two points because his five and my king totalled fifteen. I DISagreed because the Three cards on the table add up to Twenty-five, so my opponent can Not score two points from count of fifteen. But my opponent objected by saying that he's counting just the TOP cards. Who is correct, my opponent or me?
