Cassinni's Stud Weekly Round 2 Freeroll; Technically impossible?
Playing a game of Stud is fun once in a while, but as I am really not a huge fan of any game that has a fixed betting limit, I get bored with it rather quickly and start directing my attention to different things.
Yesterday, I sat down at the Cassinni's Stud Weekly Round 2 Freeroll, and as expected, as explained above, i got bored and started to count to number of players at the table.
With me included there were eight people at my table; the amount maximum allowed. I looked down at my cards to decide what my next move would be and suddenly it struck me..
- If a single round is played to its end, you receive 7 cards in total.
- A maximum of 8 people is allowed to be seated at a table in this particular tournament.
- There are 52 cards in a single deck of cards.
What am I missing out on, do the math for me real quickly...
8 players times 7 cards = 56...
How can Pokerstars
run a game of poker, where a single hand CANNOT be played to the end with all 8 players at the table?
I mean, ofcourse, I think it is not common that all the players would want to receive their hole 7 cards at a single round..
But just imagine; What if this would
occur, what would happen, how would their software co-op with it?
Would the dealer start to hand out cards that other people already have got in their hands?
Would the last 4 players just get nothing, as in; Oh, I'm dearly sorry mate, i have got no cards left it seems, better luck next time chap (or in other words, f*ck you mate, GTFO you ain't getting jackshit)?
Would it just cause someone to go sit out or "Disconnect" for no reason?
Would the Pokerstars software on your PC jam?
Or would the 53rd card become the start of a a chainreaction causing error after error after error and eventually entirely f*ck up Pokerstars' own server?
If only we could have 8 people at the same table in this tournament, to see what would happen if we'd run a hand to the end with all 8 players..
For now I remain curious and I'm quite suprised to see, that a theoretically and technically impossible 8-player game, is being played with 8 players at Pokerstars.
Please share your thoughts with me.
