Look at the top cards in every suit and count them as follows.
A = 4 points
K = 3 points
Q = 2 points
J = 1 point
The example hand has 13 high card points.
Long suits are often as useful as high card points – sometimes more so
1 point for a 5-card suit, 2 points for a 6-card suit and so on
The example hand has 2 length points
High card points + Length points = Total points.
The example hand has 13 high card points + 2 length points = 15 total points.
