# Pegging 39 Points

I am very often playing cribbage on my Smart phone using "Cribbage Pro for Android". In the statistics it tells me that my maximum Pegging that I ever achieved has been 39 points. I can't imagine how 39 points can be achieved in one round. Can anyone tell me please, how this is possible.
Thanks.

### Muggins. You claim 10 points

Muggins. You claim 10 points that your opponent didn't count in their hand.

My guess is that the program was showing you a total of 39 points pegged in a single game, not in a single hand. If it did show it for a single hand, then it was wrong. (Unless you are playing a variation with jokers) The most you could score in a regular single hand for pegging would be 30 points with you as the dealer and both you and opponent have exactly the same cards. Say 5, 5, 7, 7. He leads a 7 and you pair for two, get 12 for the quads and one for a go for 15. Same with the fives. Equals 30 points.

### It could be including points

It could be including points from pegging, points pegged from hand/crib, and also any muggins from that turn.

### Really?

Not sure how you count points pegged from a crib, but ok, if you want to include muggins, you could peg way more than 39.

### You peg 12 points from your

You peg 12 points from your hand, 4 points from the crib and thats 16 poits pegged, according to my iOS cribbage app. Retreading the question I'm guess the stat is just say that he got 39 points from the pegging phase over the course of the entire game rather than 39 points earned in a single deal like I was suggesting.

### Pegging

We must be discussing different things here. The phrase 'pegging' normally refers to the time when both players count to 31 with the non-dealer starting out by placing a card on the table and announcing its value. Pegging and play continues until all tbe cards are out of both hands or yhe game has been won. You never 'peg' points from your crib because they remain hidden durring this process. You score a crib and hand. You peg points before you score the hands. You scored 16 points in your hand and 4 in the crib, even though you use pegs to move along the board when you score, this is not normally called pegging.

### We are, I believe that my iOS

We are, I believe that my iOS cribbage app it refers to pegging as getting points, even outside of the pegging stage. I was suggesting that maybe their app did the same.

I believe that, as another poster said, it's most likely the number of points pegged over all pegging stages in the entire game.

### Seems low...

39 points seems low for total pegging in a game. I would expect ~30 points in an average game. With a maximum considerably higher. Just one 12 point situation would easily throw you over 39 for the game.

I expect it to be total points in a complete hand. Pegging+hand+crib would have a reasonable maximum of 39 (obviously you could get much higher with carefully picked cards). But a 24 hand +15 crib/pegging is completely reasonable.

### Pegging 39

They must've been counting the entire game. Here is a great resource.
