My teacher and I sit down.|
I put the deck between us.
I say, Go ahead.
Well, he says, (as one who sees everything),
if you play that deck and use the 7 across
1 at a time method, you will lose the game.
If you use the 7 across 3 at a time, you will lose,
but have 10 cards on aces above the deck.
If you use the 7 across 3 at a time method
with the Cummings shuffle you will still lose
but have 27 cards on aces above the deck.
I say, What if I make mistakes as I play?
I've already figured all hat in.
But then what if you make the mistake in the deal?
I told you I've figured all the errors in!
Now shuffle the cards again.
With that deck . . .
