From Quiz Playing Solitaire with a Deck of 51
When there are three players, the Two of Diamonds is removed and each player has a hand of 17. When there are five players, the Two of Diamonds, and Two of Clubs are removed and each player has a hand of 10. When there are six players, the two Jokers are added and each player has a hand of nine. Hearts developed as a variant on a game called Reversis in the Nineteenth Century.
