[tnnhqckp] Best poker deck

Poker can easily be modified to decks with a different number of cards per suit and a different number of suits.  Probably want to recalculate probabilities and reorder hand types by probability, including 5-of-kind or greater.  Which deck produces the best game?  How do you define "best"?  Perhaps the ability to segregate humans to many levels of play.

Decks can have more interesting structure than a two-digit number is some base.  The Hoffman-Singleton graph has many structures around the number 5, which happens to be the number of cards in a poker hand.  Previously.
