Since 21st century the form of the internationally most popular French poker characters is as follows:

He was good at playing the harp and wrote many hymns in the Bible, so there was often a pattern of harp on King K, whose hair was outward-rolled. 

★ Red Hearts k is Charlemagne, King Frankish Kingdom, also known as Charlie the Great, the first to use a chisel on the board carved his characters like the craftsman, because the careless chisel slipped after the upper lip beard shaved off.
