# Scoring

I had 3,3,4,5 in my hand and a 3 was turned up. I said the score was 21 and my friend said it was only 15. Who is right?

### re:Scoring

You had it right. I count it as 21. Breaking it down, you had three 15s for 6 (3,3,4,5 x 3) and the triple-run of three for 15 (three runs of 3 for 9 plus 6 for the three 3s).

### 6 points for 15, 6 points for

6 points for 15, 6 points for 3 of a kind, and 9 points for 3 runs of 3 equals 21. Get a new friend. Lol

### Is it 21 or 22

8 8 8 6 and a 7 cut

### 21

15-6 and a triple run of 15 for 21.

### It's 21. 8&7 is 15 = 2 points

It's 21.

8&7 is 15 = 2 points - you have this 3 times so 6 points for 15's
then 3x8's = 6 points, so that's 12 points so far
then you have a run of 6,7&8 for 3 points and you have this 3 times, so that's 9 points

### what is score

I had 7 7 7 8 9...the 8 was turned up. I counted 15-6 plus 24 for 3 runs. My husband said 15-6 plus two runs and three of a kind for 28. who is right?

### Neither of you are right

7,7,7,8,9, is 15-6 plus a triple run of 15 for a total of 21. (9 for the runs and 6 for 3 pairs) If you are scoring higher than that, someone is counting runs too many times.

### I had a 9 plus 2,2,2 and a 2

I had a 9 plus 2,2,2 and a 2 turned up. What is the score?
My friend says 18 and I say 20.

### 20 is correct. Four

20 is correct. Four combinations of 2's for 15 and 12 for
4 of a kind.

### 20

You are correct. A 9 with four deuces is 20. Look at it this way (just using the suits of the 2's) black/black/diamond, black/black/heart, red/red/spade, red/red/club. That is 8 fifteens + the quads of 12 for 20. Very nice and very rare.

### Scoring 9 plus 2,2,2 and a 2

I count 20:
*Four 15s for 8 [nCr(4,3) = 4 ways of making 6 to pair with the 9]
*Four of a kind for 12 [nCr(4,2) = 6 pairs]

### it's 20 you have 4x15 so

it's 20
you have 4x15 so that's 8 points, then 12 for the 2's making 20

### 20 points the 2's are

20 points

the 2's are calculated at 8 points
hearts, clubs, diamonds
