This is new to me and in saying that it doesn't make much sense since the mathmatical theory of outs and such is thrown out the window when this is applied.
I've never seen when you deal the flop you burn the first card, same goes for the turn and river.. nor at poker nights with the boys we just play with the deck itself not chucking/burning potential cards.
But 200km south of where I was, (I've just recently moved) it seems to be the norm, is this how Hold em is actually meant to be played? cause its news to be and like i said it doesn't make much sense cause of flop was
You have K8 so an open ender and an over.
14 outs right?
You burn the turn, what if that happened to be one of your outs
And same goes for the river what if it was one of your outs again and since both of those were burned and instead you were dealt dead cards like say 5-2 that would be no help to you at all.
So that takes it 12 outs right blowing that theory on outs etc.
same goes for if you had QQ flop comes 10,k,8 and the cards you burned happened to be both your Queens to give you trips, I don't get it tbh, unless I'm missing something here?
