 Nine cards (Posted on 2005-10-14)
Nine cards are disposed as shown:
```           +---+---+---+
| a | b | c |
+---+---+---+
| d | e | f |
+---+---+---+
| g | h | i |
+---+---+---+
```

1) There are, at least, two Aces, two Kings, two Queens and two Jacks.
2) Every Ace borders a King and a Queen.
3) Every King borders a Queen and a Jack.
4) Every Queen borders a Jack.
Note: "border" means "touch" horizontally or vertically, not diagonally.

Identify the nine cards.
