On some of the boards the numbers were indicated by playing-cards, from ace to six-spot, tacked down.
A king of diamonds showed first, then a ten-spot and a six-spot of the same suit.
Had the obstructive card been a six-spot of clubs instead of a seven-spot, victory was mine.
Camillo Bill's next card was an ace, Claw paired his jack and Brent drew a six-spot.
The “hole” card was not promising—it was only a six-spot; but, backing his luck, Smith bet high on it.
