It's a split. If you take the highest scoring set of five cards, each player is holding a double king, queen, ten and nine. The eight of clubs and four of hearts are never considered in scoring. Here's an explanation of this five-card scoring rule. Especially: Five might be the most important number in poker, if only because five cards make a complete ...

The hand is always scored to give the best possible value for the player, such that they have the highest score they can get without going bust. The player never chooses the values or the score; it is decided by the rule and the cards on the table. A+A+X will always be valued as 12+X, unless this would bust, in which case it must be valued as 12 (since the ...

As per the rules (may need a BoardGameGeek.com account to access): The player who has successfully delivered the most and the second most of each type of Legal Good is declared the “King” and “Queen”, respectively, of that Good.

My friends and I use rankade, which has an app both for iOS and Android (but I prefer the webapp, personally, as it has the graphs). You can use it for every game, and the thing I like the most is the fact that it gives you the whole history (and rankings) for both the group (collective matches) and for each single boardgame. I don't think it can track every ...

This situation is called Seki. Scoring depends on the ruleset you're using.

I also got a canonical answer elsewhere from Tony Gullotti, Sales Director at the publishers (Arcane Wonders). You only get the King bonus. To quote: "You have the most chickens, so you get the King's Bonus. There is no second most, so no Queen's Bonus is awarded."

Here is another interesting thing Nigel Richards perhaps the best Scrabble ever, has at the time or writing played 2549 internationally rated games. He has scored more than 300 in all but 10 of them. It's more than likely that in those 10 games he had sequences of incredibly bad racks. His average per game is 461.37 and average against him is 390.26 which ...
