By the way, it is interesting to me that the only thing needed to place the cards correctly (in this case) is knowing that the total number of correct guesses is 10.

The distribution of guesses by person (1,2,3,4) is not needed, just their total.  Also not needed is the fact that each card was guessed correctly at least once.
