• Having four deuces in your hand would be twelve points. Think about it - if we call the cards deuce A, B, C, and D, the pair combinations (each worth 2 points) are AB AC AD BC BD CD so 6 * 2 = 12 points.
  • Think about it this way. With 2 cards, there's only one way to make a pair. If you add another card, it can pair with each of the cards you already had, giving you two more pairs. So three of a kind makes three pairs, scoring 6. If you add another card now, it doubles the number of pairs as it can pair with each card you already had. So four of a kind scores 12, and so on.
