Number Cards Before Face Cards (Posted on 2019-05-02) Difficulty: 3 of 5
If you turn over a well shuffled deck of cards one card at a time, what is the probability that you'll see at least one of each of the denominations of the numeric cards, ace through ten (1 - 10) before seeing any face card (J, Q, K)?

The probability is ~ 0.003497

(This is from simulation) 

The mathematical solution is, ah, still forthcoming...
