Hello, I copied this from “http://www.hoylegaming.com/rules/showrule.aspx?RuleID=207” It states: “To begin play (called pegging), the dealer turns up the top card of the stock. This card is called one for the starter. If this card is a jack, the dealer immediately pegs two (advances his peg two spaces), traditionally called two for his heels.” Over the past 50+ years, my father always told me that the dealer couldn’t advance and/or go out (into the 121st hole) by turning up that jack to end the game. My weekly competitor keeps telling me that you can win turning up that jack. Which of them is true?

Thanks for your time in solving this inquiry of mine. Louie DePuydt

The rules we have listed on the Hoyle Gaming site are official rules "According to Hoyle" which are a universally accepted way of playing this game. While there may be variations of this game all of our games are programmed to those rules listed on the website.
