I've seen various versions of the rules of "Baker's Dozen" (e.g. on, Wikipedia) stating that the rule for kings is simply that they are placed to the bottom of the column they end up in.

But in the version given by S. A. Barry, "Great Card Games for One", it is stated that "If a King is lying on another card of the same suit, place it underneath that card".

Does anybody know of another source for that rule, and/or have any notion of which variant is most popular?
