Interesting, but how is it connected to a shuffled deck of 52 playing cards?

Which has a higher entropy a pack arranged by suit and order or a shuffled pack?

Entropy, S, is defined as proportional to the logarithm of a system's phase space volume, W, and Boltzmann assigned k to the constant of proportionality. What does a shuffled deck of cards have to do with the chemistry-based definition of entropy change given on page 6 of your link?

You think a physics based definition should be different from a chemistry based one?

For the record I don't.
