In that case, you 'could' see the same card 2 to 3 times in your hand. Unlikely, but possible.
There was a minor drama over this at the WSOP
this year - apparently what's supposed
to happen is the dealer is meant to keep two separate mucks (one for complete mucked hands, and the other for discarded cards) and only
the complete mucked hands are supposed to be reshuffled, to prevent players from being dealt a card on the third draw that they threw away on the first. What actually happend though was everything was getting reshuffled and players were getting cards they'd discarded previously.
My take home message from all of this was if you're going to play decue-seven, FFS play NL single draw. It's more fun for starters, and you pretty much never have to deal with issues like the above.
This is all completely off topic though, seeing as how deuce-seven is a draw game and not a stud game
Tenbob and JD have it, if the deck runs out of cards in a stud game a community card gets dealt on seventh street.
