Las Vegas, 03:15 am. You are in the final 4 of the World Series poker tournament, with a cash prize of $1,000,000, when someone spills coffee on the cards.
Write a macro to generate four hands of random cards:
A typical deal - Chris Ferguson has two pairs, but maybe you can bluff with your single pair of 3s
There are many ways to solve this (that is part of the challenge), but here are some hints:
- The Symbols worksheet contains 4 ranges called Heart, Club, Diamond and Spade, which will give you the symbols you need
- The expression Int(Math.Rnd * 13) + 1 will generate a card number between 1 and 13 (and similarly you could generate the suit)
- For each new card that you generate, you need to check it is not already on the table
When you have finished, save this as Poker deal - and give yourself a huge pat on the back!
