The cribbage rules of the jack
 

The jack gives some extra points when playing cribbage.

When a cribbage player deals the cards and the opponent cuts a jack, this gives the dealer 2 points. These two points are pegged when the cut is done and do not count in the hands point at the end of the table play.

When a player has a jack in his crib or hand, if the cut is of the same kind it gives the cribbage player a point. This point is counted with the cribbage hand at the end of the table game.

A player can usually win the game with the 2 points from cutting a jack. Some will not allow this, depending on the rules used.

 

    = 1 point for jack

This is a hand that gives one point because the jack and the cut are of the same kind. If you play cribbage think of the jack.
