Leaving one peg is easy. I'm looking for the solution to leaving one peg in all three corners. Anyone know how?

I only did it with one left once in my life before, but thanks to you, now I can memorize it! Also, see if you can leave 10 pegs instead of one.

Yes, I have been to Crackerbarrel, and I did the Peg Game with one left.

I start with the middle peg of the bottom edge empty (where you started the blue peg). If I have one odd-colored peg, I put it in the top corner. Then I can announce to the amazed onlookers that not only can I leave just one peg at the end, but it will be the odd colored one, and it will be in the hole that was empty to begin with.
