Your Questions About Suit Of Clubs

Mandy asks…

How do you find the probability of drawing a king or a non face card?

Using a standard deck of cards (having 13 cards in each suit (hearts, clubs, spades, & diamonds) & 4 cards each rank (Ace, 2-10, King, Queen, Jack) & 12 face cards.

TarotTrumps answers:

I think:
Probability is how many successful chances (kings and non-face) you have out of ALL chances (52 cards). So there are 4 kings and 40 non-face cards.
So if you can win by drawing either a king or a non-face card (a,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10) you have a 44 out of 52 (44/52) chance. Reduce this fraction by dividing by the greatest common factor (4) and that’s an 11/13 probability.

11 divided by 13 would change this to a percent for you. (about 85% chance)

(king alone is a 4/52 or 1/13 chance; non-face alone is 40/52 or 10/13 chance.

I am not always right, so hopefully someone else will anwer you!

Mark asks…

why do the face cards in the spades suit (and the jack of clubs) look left when all the others look right?

TarotTrumps answers:

Ive always wondered that must be an oldie thing i know my grandad plays a game where you need a one eyed jack which is only in one suit

Nancy asks…

Will the day come, when clubs scout, mainly European young talent?

There are only 2 English players who have survived, from Arsenals FA youth cup team, of 2001.

More to the point, Arsenal have successfully scouted young, European talent and developed it. Good luck to them, but will it ever happen, that other major clubs, follow suit at the expense of our youngsters?

I’m not thinking about whether Arsenal should do this, good luck to them, but are there consequences for our football.
Paddy B – You’re not saying anything, that people don’t know, already!

Look, take as an example, Liverpool. They decide to adopt the same successfull scheme as Arsenal, and only target young, European talent, for some of the reasons that you highlight.

Then take it one step further and assume, that most Premiership clubs do the same. Does it mean, even less chance, for our young home grown talent to be developed, with a top club.

Or, will they come through anyway?

TarotTrumps answers:

This has been underway for some time. All the top Premiership clubs have scouts all over Europe. Some full time, some part time. To identify a good youngster of (say) 15 is the holy grail. Sign him up and if he is good you have a star for little or no transfer fee! Think how many scouts a couple of million quid a year will pay for. Then think what you get by spending the same amount in the transfer market. Prem clubs couldn’t give a toss whether a player is British or not. They want good value young talent from anywhere!
