4.  If the elder or younger-hand play with thir­teen cards, he counts nothing.
5.  Should either of the players have thirteen cards dealt him, it is at the option of the elder-hand to stand the deal or not, and if he choose to stand, then the person having thirteen is to dis­card one more than he takes in; but should either party have above thirteen cards, then a new deal must take place.
6.  If the elder or younger-hand reckon what he has not, he counts nothing.

11.  If the elder hand should call 41 for his point, which happens to be a quart-major, and it is allowed to be good, and should only reckon 4 for it, and should have played, he is not entitled to count more.
