January 2023 Artifices ... Lost in Translation

Postby Dustin Stinett » March 7th, 2023, 3:50 pm

Hi everyone who reads Roberto Mansilla's column "Artifices." In the January issue, there is an error in the stack for "The Stabbed Card" as printed (my fault). An Ace and King are missing, prior to the three Tens.
Here is the shorthand version of the stack of the top half of the deck (the bottom is correct in the issue):

X, K♠, A♠, A, K, A, K, A, K, 10, 10, 10, X, X, all the Spades (minus the 10), X, X.

Sorry for the confusion. We will make a note in Roberto's next column (May issue). Our thanks to reader Stephen Smith for bringing this to our attention.
