More scoring information

Question: I got a hand with 4 5's and an ace. How is it scored?

Answer: This hand is worth 20 points. With the 4 5's you score 12 points since there are 6 different pair combinations. Then you can score another 8 points since there are 4 ways to make 15 using the fives.


Question: How do you score 4,5,6,6, with 5 as the cut card?

Answer: I believe the hand is scored as follows:

4,5,6=15 for 2
4,5,6=15 for 4
4, 5, 6=15 for 6
4,5,6=15 for 8
Double Double run (45566)=16 for a total of 24 points

This is how you score the Double Double run (3 cards consecutive with two pairs):

456 for 3
456 for 6
456 for 9
456 for 12
55 pair for 14
66 pair for 16
