On your first run there will be more than 200 rounds, thus you don't want your step to be too small. Now use gdb to find out the first card in your hand. Your assignment for this lab will consist of writing 2 functions that are defined in the file game.c.

Do not forget about good programming practices, adequate comments and documentation for your functions. Everybody should be able to understand what your have done and why.
