comment Cribbage pone strategy for hands involving a run and a pair
Hmm, I got so caught up with the numbers, to be honest, I forgot about the crib completely. I think it is fair to say that with the opponent's crib taken into account, throwing a pair into the opponents crib will help them, but I am not sure yet what average crib values for a QQxx crib and a 36xx crib are. I will spend some time (probably more time than I should) to see if I cannot figure those out. The question boils down to "is a QQxx crib 1.61+ points better than a 36xx crib", and corsiKa, looking at that now it seems quite likely, but I will try to get some numbers!
