Roberts Rules of Poker said:If the dealer burns and deals one or more cards before a round of betting has been completed, the card(s) must be eliminated from play. After the betting for that round is completed, an additional card for each remaining player still active in the hand is also eliminated from play (to later deal the same cards to the players who would have received them without the error). After that round of betting has concluded, the dealer burns a card and play resumes. The removed cards are held off to the side in the event the dealer runs out of cards. If the prematurely dealt card is the final downcard and has been looked at or intermingled with the player's other holecards, the player must keep the card, and on sixth street betting may not bet or raise (because the player now has all seven cards).
Trying to determine the correct method of dealing with a prematurely exposed card in Stud Poker. In this case we are playing Shuck which is a particularly messed-up but high-action No Limit Hi-Lo variant of 5-card Stud. Can somebody explain the above rule to me?
Say we are three handed. If we number the cards remaining in the deck from the top down 1,2,3... The dealer prematurely burns card 1 and exposes card 2. Card 2 is now "eliminated from play" as well as cards 3 and 4? When ready to deal, we now burn card 6 and deal 7, 8 & 9. Really?
