|From the introduction, a different player dealt each hand 1st-5th and chose
a different wild card variant for the hand; no player won the hand he dealt.
By clue 1, in three consecutive hands, Wayne won, Eddie dealt, and the
dealer chose Heinz as the wild card option. Eddie thus didn't pick Heinz to
play; nor did he pick Baseball or Woolworth's (clue 7). Since Eddie dealt
Follow the Queen or Low in the Hole, he didn't deal the 2nd hand (9). Eddie
dealt the 3rd or 4th hand. If Eddie had dealt the 4th hand, Wayne would
have won the 3rd hand, and the 5th hand would have been Heinz with 5's and
7's wild (1). Wayne's win wasn't the hand Marty dealt (5); by clue 6, then,
Marty would have dealt the 1st hand, and Derrick would have won the 2nd.
By clue 8, Wayne would have dealt the 5th hand and chosen Heinz as the game.
By clue 4, Eddie would have won the 1st hand. Floyd would have taken the pot
in the 4th hand (9), with Marty then winning the 5th hand. Derrick would have
dealt the 3rd and Floyd the 2nd hand. In clue 9, then, Follow the Queen and
Low in the Hole would have been the wild card variants for the 1st and 3rd
hands, or vice versa, with Eddie then choosing either Baseball or Woolworth's for the 4th
hand--no (7). Therefore, in clue 1, Eddie didn't deal the 4th hand; Eddie
dealt the 3rd hand, with Wayne winning the 2nd and Heinz being the wild card
choice for the 4th deal. Wayne's win wasn't the hand Marty dealt (5);
by clue 6, then, Marty dealt the 4th hand, and Derrick won the 5th.
By clue 8, Wayne dealt the 1st hand of the evening. Derrick dealt the 2nd
and Floyd the 5th hand. By clue 9, Floyd's victory wasn't Wayne's 1st hand
deal. Since Eddie didn't pick Baseball or Woolworth's to play (7), he dealt
either Follow the Queen or Low in the Hole. By clue 9, then, Floyd also
didn't win the 3rd hand with Eddie dealing; Floyd won the 4th hand. Eddie
then won the 1st hand, and Marty won the 3rd hand. In clue 9, Follow the
Queen and Low in the Hole were the wild card games for the 3rd and 5th hands
or vice versa. By clue 3, then, Derrick dealt Woolworth's and Wayne Baseball.
Finally, by clue 2, Marty won Follow the Queen and Derrick Low in the Hole.
The first five hands were played as follows:
- 1st hand -- Wayne dealt Baseball, won by Eddie
- 2nd hand -- Derrick dealt Woolworth's, won by Wayne
- 3rd hand -- Eddie dealt Follow the Queen, won by Marty
- 4th hand -- Marty dealt Heinz, won by Floyd
- 5th hand -- Floyd dealt Low in the Hole, won by Derrick
