re: Poker & Bum deal question.
I have seen a mishap, after throwing numerous hands away I was finally dealt something nice. Don't remember exactly but I do remember a K and maybe Q, J or another K. lol Anyways, one of my cards had turned over as it was thrown my way. Dealer automatically said re-shuffle.
But then a few hands later I am thrown a card. An awful one. I remember it was a 3. The card was bent lengthwise, and very horribly. I automatically decided before even looking at that card or the other I would fold.
Could not believe even when I threw that card back to the dealer it was just put back into the deck. He even had problems trying to fit it into the deck.
Now that I believe should have been cause for a new deck of cards. I was fumed.
