212                           PIQUET.
13.  Carte-blanche counts first, and consequently saves piques and repiques. It also piques and re-piques the adversary, in the same manner as if those points were reckoned in any other way.
14.  Carte-blanche need not be shown till the adversary has discarded; but the elder-hand must bid the younger-hand to discard for carte-blanche: which having done, he is to show his blanche by counting the cards down one after another.
15.  In cutting for the deal, you are to cut two cards at the least.
16.  Should the elder-hand call a point, and not show it, it is not to be reckoned: and the younger-hand may show and reckon his point.
17.  If you play with eleven cards, or fewer, no penalty attends it.
18.  Should the elder-hand leave a card, and after having taken in should put to his discard the four cards taken in, thev must remain with his discard, and he can only play with eight cards.
19- If the younger-hand leave a card or cards, and should mix it with his discard before he has shown it to the elder-hand, who is first to tell him what he will play, the elder-hand is entitled to see his whole discard.
20.  If the younger-hand should leave a card or cards, and should not see them, nor mix them with his discard, the elder-hand has no right to see them ; but then they must remain separate whilst the cards are playing, and the younger-hand can­not look at them.
21.  If the younger-hand should leave a card or cards, and look at them, the elder-hand is entitled to see them, first declaring what suit he will lead.
22.  If the dealer should give a card too few, it is in the option of the elder-Lund to have a new deal ; but should he stand the deal, he must leave three cards for the younger-hand.
