I am playing with the Big Gin variant, which is not part of the base game.
Say I pick up a card from the deck which makes me a Gin hand. Only, I don't realize it due to say, misreading my hand, or I questionably decide to try for Big Gin for extra points, and simply discard my remaining deadwood card without knocking.
My opponent now draws from the deck, makes Gin, and knocks.
How is the hand scored?
- Does the defending player receive the Gin bonus?
- Since the defending player has equaled the knocking player's deadwood count (0), do they receive the undercut bonus even though the knocking player made Gin?
If so, does the knocking player still receive the Gin bonus?
