The secret of the three cards: "Three, seven, ace! Three, seven, queen!" ("It's not the queen of spades, it's the countess!") According to Wikipedia, Pushkin's short story was published in 1834, and was the basis for Tchaikovsky's 1890 ballet of the same name.

What a jerk the main character is, but at least we know his motivations. A good story but I do wonder what the ballet is like.

Alec

What a fool the main character is! He really expected the countess (murder victim) to help him win at gambling after he murdered her for the secret numbers. Wow, sometimes stupid just can't be beat, lol! Bryna Raeburn was very good in her role as the countess, and her sinister laughter at the end was very chilling.
