A few solutions that I've got but don't understand.

13a - recall one hundred odd swallowing drop of special medicine (7). Answer = nostrum

19d - even row about card game (2,1,3) on a par.

17d - Flush? Reportedly posted a trivial amount of money (3,4). Red cap. Means 'a trivial amount of money' but what does it have to do with Flush?

Any explanations appreciated!

17d - Flush? Reportedly posted a trivial amount of money (3,4)

Agree with red cent

flush - red
reportedly posted - (c)sent

Thanks very much, both of you.

I meant red cent, not red cap. Can anyone explain the rationale behind red cent?

Thank you, Rusty. But can you explain why that's the answer?

Post 5 explains it perfectly.

Flush = red

reportedly posted = sent = cent

a trivial amount of money = definition
