Not sure if I am going about this hand correctly but I see probably only 2 points and I need 11 points to peg and count out first. I would need to slow dealer down. This hand has 12 cuts that can give me 8-9 points so I am going with probability.

Hope to cut a 4,5 or Q. Maybe even another King.

Jack lead, saving the big pear 'til the end.

Same idea a timely cut needed if I was at 116 I might have done A-6. I would lead the Jack here. dec

I want that extra 4 cut for a chance to win. And any cut that hits this hand would prefer it to be a club. Otherwise 6 J K K still has a 5,Q even a K might get me close enough provided dealer doesn't win it outright this deal.

Tough row to hoe. 2nd choice would be A68J.

Prayers went unanswered. I really need the 4, 5 or Q of clubs to be cut. The 10 is useless.

This is where cribbage etiquette comes into play, you smile and accept the loss as a gentleman.

I have more cuts to get to 6-8 points and this is a better pegger. Kings are just two points probably 42 percent of the time and Iím not giving up the key connector, jack. I hope to peg out next hand. Anyone else jumping in the deep end with me. Iíll have to read on as it looks like Iíll be the student today instead of the teacher.

dealer is 16 out and may not go out. If I can peg a couple, get 6-7 points I could peg out next hand. I donít think your going out with either hand and this could give you a better chance to live and fight another day. Not throwing 6-8. Iím probably wrong. Iíll read JTQ, RAS and Hal later.

Well I'd like a nickel for every time I've held this hand in this position. I keep it this way, try to peg without getting caught in a pegging tryst, and I'm not giving the pone's crib that much. There is really only one other combination that has worked 6,8,K,K and toss the A & J. But that Ace always comes in handy. Good one Ras!

Tough road to hoe is right. The (6-8) is too dangerous. We may get another deal with this discard. Lead the J to be rid of it. Save the Kís for the end like James said. If Dealer takes the (15-2), which is unlikely, my Kc may get a GO. Now the 6c scores (31-2). At least I faked a flush. Maybe Dealer leads a K to start the next series, thinking I canít have a K if I have the flush. That moves me to hole 116 as Dealer. Not looking too rosey though.

From a big hairy beast lurking in the woods perspective. . . I am tossing a Hail Mary looking to cut queen starter card. The 8-A kills the crib better than th 8-6.

Two opposite approaches here - go for most chances of 8/9pts with A-J-K-K or play for fewer chances of 8/9pts but with a safer crib discard. A-6-8-K is less likely I think as it has a maximum of 6/7pts and J-K is still not safe although it this hand may peg slightly better..

A-J-K-K: 444, 555, QQQ for 8pts 4C, 5C, QC for 9pts.

6-J-K-K: 555, QQQ for 8pts 5C, QC for 9pts.

A-6-8-K: AAA, 666, 7777, 888 = 13 cuts for 6/7pts.

I think I'll go for more chances of 8pts and hope for 4C, 5C or QC for 9pts. If we get a good cut and do not peg enough we may yet peg out as dealer next hand.

I have been burned too many times tossing the 6-8. How many times have your parents told you not to play with fire? I'm not happy with my discard, but if a 6 turns, I have a pair.
I'll lead the K and hope for the best

At 110-105* playing an Offense strategy for the pegging the Win/Loss %s are:

Offense_______W1 %____W2 %____L1 %____L2 %
6-J-K-K_______8.0_____13.8____34.7____79.0
A-J-K-K_______6.1_____12.1____41.4____79.6
6-8-K-K_______4.1_____11.3____36.9____81.6
8-J-K-K_______5.2_____11.1____37.4____81.8
A-6-8-K_______2.6_____10.5____39.6____82.3

6-J-K-K is best for Win %s and Loss %s do I'll select A-8 to discard.

After the 10 cut I'll lead the J and play Offense:

Lead______Our Pegging Pts.____Win %
K______________1.17____________0.0
J______________1.13____________0.1
6______________0.97____________0.0
