I can't believe it. I think I have found a 2nd unwinnable Klondike in as many weeks. Anyone disagree? What's the solution?

It's unwinnable Bill, but the rules state that it has an expected win rate of 80%, so two in two weeks is not particularly remarkable. Looks like you've just been lucky so far and things may be starting to level themselves out.

Hey! No problem, Richard. Wouldn't be fun / challenging if it could be won 100% of the time. Just wanted to know if I had missed something with this particular card setup. Sometimes I wonder if those with 100% ratings for certain difficult games are not replaying the same winnable game over and over.

Stop wondering. The scores are manipulated. Look at the stats in the new games Thomas has offered.
You can see what real players manage to get. There are some very fine players who have posted scores.

I wish PGS had the Steps feature, so that this sort of manipulation couldn't happen. I said this in the current PGS Beta testing.
