    Hi Everyone!

    I was playing a variation of whist today and wondered the probability of winning the final flip.

    The player who won the last hand gets the advantage and whatever they flip over is the trump suit. the highest card wins

    the final flip is one card each, turned over and the winner has the highest card (same suit) or trumps another

    I got as far a starting with the disadvantaged player having 1 in 4 chance of drawing the same suit as the advantaged one. after that is gets all confusing

    please can anybody shed light on this bamboozlyment?
