98. The players first draw a card to determine the banker. Let us suppose that this is Peter and that the number of players is as desired. From a complete pack of fifty-two cards, judged adequately shuffled, Peter draws one after the other, calling one as he draws the first card, two as he draws the second, three as he draws the third, and so on, until the thirteenth, calling king. Then, if in this entire sequence of cards he has not drawn any with the rank he has called, he pays what each of the players has staked and yields to the player on his right.
