Place one or more chips on the square marks
and pay one to the dealer. He will nod if a bet
agrees with the hidden card then takes all chips
on the board even if he shook head.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
[ C ]                   [ K ]                   [ D ]

           [ 2 ]         [ 6 ]        [ 3 ]

[ J ]      [ 9 ]        [ A ]        [ 7 ]     [ 10 ]

           [ 5 ]         [ 8 ]        [ 4 ]

[ H ]                   [ Q ]                   [ S ]
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

How many chips is necessary to guess his card?

 

 

 

 

Happy Three Kings !

Clarification... If I bet on both a suit and a rank will the dealer nod if either of them matches the card or only if both match? For example, if I bet on K and D, will he nod

1) only if he has a King of Diamonds or

2) if he has any King or any Diamond?

Nice puzzle! We are pretty good at weighing coins here, but when you have to pay per card and pay per round, it's a different story. I started with one more than Bonanova found, but now I've caught up with him.

His priority is shake head,   1) only if he has a King of Diamonds

Hi CaptainEd

it is supposed a game we used to play with both opponent to guess first to win..asking any questions answerable by yes or no.

Like : is that a letter or is it a prime..

Unfotunately  the solution to puzzle is just straight forward. Iwould be happy with 20 but failed

Aye CaptainEd
Clear one.Thank you.
Suppose you also held a hidden card and the dealer will guess it too.
Using Bonanova strategy (suits only--2,1) (ranks only--6,3,2,1) Vs.
Dealer using CaptEd strategy (suits only--2,1) (ranks only--5,4,2,1)
Who has the advantage?
