  • Cribbage 29 hand

    Tonight at friends place Mrs.Magnum got the perfect hand. Looked it up and its a nearly 1 in 650,000 occurrence.

    Too bad my hand put us out and we didnt have to count her hand.

    Holy crap... even with the matching Jack! I've seen a 28 before, but the Jack was wrong.

      I would have given her a mulligan to count it next time

        Since she didn't count it, did it really happen?

        I had a 28 hand once back in the day.

          I've had a 29 hand 3 times. Once in a tournament that paid out $100 to anybody that got one, that was a good day. I lost all three games that I got a 29.

            Congratulations she should now go buy a lottery ticket, she might be in the zone.

              I figured that was her lottery ticket.

                  My wife and I play a best of 3 crib games just about every night during the winter, each of us has had a 28 hand but never a 29. On one occasion the right suited jack was in my hand that would have given her the 29, so very close. Each of us played for around 55 years and still haven't hit the big one. Congratulations!

                        My grandpa had 2 during his lifetime, he played a lot of crib, pretty much daily. I used to play quite a bit too and have had a 28 but never a 29.

                          My grandpa and grandma played crib every night from the time they were 25 years old. Grandpa passed away when he was 95 and my grandma passed away last month at the age of 99. They played for 2 hours every night and during that time my grandpa only got a 29 hand once, and that was when he was 90. He was so proud of it that he got a plaque made of the hand and the date that it happened.

                            Nice, that must have been quite the scene after playing that long and finally getting the big one. My Grandpa managed to also get two hole in ones in his life (same hole). He must have been carying a horse shoe all day. But again when you golf the same course literally every day and your not a bad golfer you are almost bound to pot one eventually.

                            We should have a what are the chances thread.

                              What are the chances you will start one?
