Two for his heels

"Two for his heels" is a rule of Cribbage that scores two points for the dealer if she turns up a Jack during the turn-up phase of the hand.

A commonly-used optional rule has it that "two for his heels" cannot be scored if the player is in the stinkhole, but this is non-standard and you should agree beforehand if you want to play this rule.

See also nobs - the Jack of nobs, or 'right Jack' is the Jack of the same suit as the turn-up card.
