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.

[ 2 ] [ 6 ] [ 3 ]

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

[ 5 ] [ 8 ] [ 4 ]

How many chips is necessary to guess his card?

Happy Three Kings !

I can do it using 21 chips with a method that is so straightforward it likely is not the best result.

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

There are four suits. In our worst case, we'll need to put a chip on 3 of them to discover that it's really the fourth.

Similarly, there are 13 cards, In the worst case, we'll need to put a chip on 12 of them.

So we'll have to put out at least 15 chips. THen our task is to minimize rounds (one chip per deal). I don't see how to improve on two rounds for the suit and four rounds for the card. 15+6=21.

If we combine suits and denominations, I think we'll pay more chips per card, and not save enough in deals.

So if the rounds are (suits only--2,1) (cards only--6,3,2,1), we have 21 chips paid.

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?

Suit : 2-1 trials worth 5 chips

1? 2?
