Klondike with a twist

Before Windows I've never played Klondike (aka Solitaire). I do not like it very much as many times I've got stuck so I do not play it very often.

This time roles have switched and I find myself writing code to play the the game: There is an ongoing TopCoder programming contest where you are asked to write the "game logic" code.

I am a poor Klondike player and it shows in my code. There are many pages out there with guidelines on how to play it well, but sometimes the rules are too high-level.

To make things worse the game is known not to be solvable in some cases.

Competition will be open till September 10th.
