As the dealer was dealing, first card that my friend was dealt got flipped up, which was an Ace. So that's an exposed card, and dealer keeps dealing out cards. he gets the second card, which is an Ace and after everyone's been dealt, then dealer gives the other card to compensate the first card that got flipped over. He was angry at the hand where he could've been dealt pocket Aces because first card got flipped over and exposed which was an Ace, second card that was dealt was an Ace but was faced down, and then third card that was dealt to replace the first card that got flipped over, was 7. If first card didn't get flipped over, then my friend would've had pocket Aces.
I know it's a mistake and my friend shouldn't have acted like a dick because mistakes happen.
The way they deal the cards were, they deal it normally. Let's say I'm the dealer and I dealt u a first card which got flipped over and exposed, then the next card will be dealt to player left of you instead of giving you the card. In other words, they skip you till the end. So by the time all the players have been dealt to the button, you're one card short, then the dealer deals u the card. They do this so that other players still get dealt the cards they were supposed to get. At least this is how it works at casinos in Southern California
