Lateral Thinking #11- Special Deal -

Share this page on:
Puzzle Image While dealing out cards for a game of Bridge, the dealer is interrupted by a telephone call. When he returns, no one can remember who was dealt the last card. Without counting how many cards each player has or how many cards are remaining, how can he deal out the remaining cards such that each player is dealt 13 cards?

Note: In a game of Bridge, each of the 4 players is dealt 13 cards and all of the cards in the deck are used. The dealer is one of the four players and the cards are dealt in clockwise order beginning with the player to the left of the dealer.
Do you have a suggestion for this puzzle (e.g. something that should be mentioned/clarified in the question or solution, bug, typo, etc.)?
