Find The Lady (a tough non-Bridge problem)
You can ensure to find the lady in 5 tries with equal probability, so your expected average is 3$. Which means the player will most probably end up with a small gain (and the club with a small loss). This assuming that the deal is actually random, and assuming that ...
