  1. Blech. My program indicates only 5% of distributions of this many cards would be worse than what we have. To pick one dramatic spot in the distribution list: 5 6s, 5 8s, and between them zero 7s.

    bh is an obvious start. We make our shortest column atomic.

    But then how to use our 9? ja gives us an atomic column with 4 cards under it.
    ea, ed gives us atomic column e with 3 cards under it. Fewer buried cards in the stack wins the day.

    Then with ji we just reduce some disorder.

    Final answer: bh, ea, ed, ji, deal.

    I think monkey didn’t show very good judgment even before he kinda went crazy. Prohibiting repeating past positions doesn’t seem to be built in yet.
