Layout

9 tableau piles - the top card is available for play.  Pair up cards that have ranks that add to 11 (Ace-10, 2-9, 3-8, 4-7, 5-6).  Jacks, Queens, and Kings are grouped as a triplet (J-Q-K).  Spaces are automatically filled from the stock.   To discard a J-Q-K triplet, move each card to the reserve pile in the lower left.  When all 3 cards have been moved, the J-Q-K triplet is removed from play.   At the start of the game 1 card is dealt face up to each pile.
