Problematics | Which game is smarter, poker or teen patti?
The Hollywood caper The Sting (1973) includes a memorable depiction of a poker game, in which a lot of cheating is going on. This too is about poker, and the rules of the game now may help you warm up for The Sting later.
The Hollywood caper The Sting (1973) includes a memorable depiction of a poker game, in which a lot of cheating is going on. Cinema must, however, wait until we are done with the first puzzle of the day. This too is about poker, and the rules of the game now may help you warm up for The Sting later.
In poker, the straight flush’s top rank implies that it has a lower probability of appearing than four of a kind, which is ranked lower. On the other hand, in teen patti, the trio (three of a kind) ranks higher than a straight flush, which implies that the trio has a lower probability of appearing than a straight flush.
Is the ranking system flawed in one of the games, or both?

ARGENTINA + WALES = SENEGAL + IRAN + (TWA)
Three residual letters (TWA) in the anagram.
The interesting thing I notice about your puzzles is that they appear difficult when you read through it, but seem easier when you start solving.
