Out of ignorance just came a bright idea. Why DON'T online poker sites offer such a thing? For certain games, cards are dealt by physical dealers who you can see in a video. So you can zoom into a video of the dealer and the cards he dealth but the cards you get at your table would be digital representations fo the cards actually dealt.
Such an offering may make sense for higher limit games, especially nosebleeds.
Or, just charge a higher rake and offer this "real dealer" capability at many different buy-in levels....just be sure to include the dealer salary in the rake.
Or, if hiring a dealer is too much. Maybe they could actually create a machine that would automatically deal cards.....so it would be like a random generator that actually creates randomness from the shuffling of phsyical objects (could be cards or not.....whatever would be more practical).
I think it is a brilliant idea actually. I'd try out a table like that if it was offered....
