What happens when both players get gin?
A player who goes gin can never be undercut. Even if the other player has no unmatched cards at all, the person going gin gets the 20 point bonus the other player scores nothing. The game continues with further deals until one player’s cumulative score reaches 100 points or more.
What does it mean to go gin with sets only?
If the first upcard was Ace, then you will only be allowed to knock with Pure Gin (zero deadwood). Knocking with no deadwood, i.e. all 10 card in you hands forming melds is called going Gin. The game also ends if neither player has knocked and there are only two cards left in the deck.
