§ 627a.6. Value of cards; Point Count of hand.

 (a)  The value of the cards in each deck shall be as follows:

   (1)  Any card from 2 to 9 shall have its face value.

   (2)  Any 10, jack, queen or king shall have a value of zero.

   (3)  Any ace shall have a value of one.

 (b)  The Point Count of a hand shall be a single digit number from 0 to 9 and determined by totaling the value of the cards in the hand. If the total of the cards in a hand is a two-digit number, the left digit of the number shall be discarded and the right digit shall constitute the Point Count of the hand. Examples of this rule are as follows:

   (1)  A hand composed of an ace, 2 and 4 has a Point Count of 7.

   (2)  A hand composed of an ace, 2 and 9 has a total of 12 but a Point Count of only 2 since the left digit of the number 12 is discarded.
