The three letters

The three letters

Try to guess which cards are hidden, from the following clues:

To the left of the king, there are two letters. One heart is just to the left of the other. There is a clover to the right of a heart. A two is to the right of an ace.

What three cards are hidden?

Solution

The first clue already tells us that the letter on the right is a king. Since the two hearts are together and the clover is to the right of a heart, the card on the right must be the king of clubs and the others will be hearts.

Finally, the last clue tells us that the two is to the right of the ace, so the center card will be the 2 of hearts and therefore the one on the left will be the ace of hearts.
