Abstract [en]

The game of two-person single-suit whist is played with a deck consisting of a single totally ordered suit of 2n cards. Each of the two players receives n cards. Hence both players have complete information about the distribution of the cards. One of the players is said to be on lead. Play proceeds in rounds called tricks. The player on lead plays one of his cards, and with knowledge of this card, the other player plays one of his cards. The player with the higher card wins the trick, and obtains the lead. The cards that are played are then removed. Play continues until all cards are exhausted. Each player tries to win as many tricks as possible

We give a complete solution to this game, that is, an efficient algorithm for calculating the game theoretical value of any distribution of the cards.
