Can't paste the link here but the casino had been fined for short decks. Does this happen often?

The story sounds like a mistake, and supervisors just not doing their job rather than taking specific cards out to cheat.

I once had a card room in Washington state with an auto shuffler red lighting every shoe for 3-4 shoes and dealer hand shuffling instead, meanwhile they had two different colors of decks mixed together and about 20 cards sitting in the shuffler. I had to point it out, I thought it looked closer to 5.5 decks than 6. Supervisor didnít see a problem with the constant red light. Once I point it out and they found the problem he immediately had the dealer cut two decks off and flat bet me, lol. Never let the casino supervisor know youíre sharper than them, should have just walked away and called gaming I guess.

here's a great quote from the story:

"In some cases, dealers used decks of cards that contained too many cards; too few cards; or in one poker tournament, 𝐜𝐚𝐫𝐝𝐬 𝐬𝐨𝐫𝐭𝐞𝐝 𝐢𝐧 𝐬𝐞𝐪𝐮𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐢𝐚𝐥 𝐨𝐫𝐝𝐞𝐫 𝐫𝐚𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐫 𝐭𝐡𝐚𝐧 𝐫𝐚𝐧𝐝𝐨𝐦𝐥𝐲 𝐬𝐡𝐮𝐟𝐟𝐥𝐞𝐝."



sound familiar?

A shufflmaster at a poker table was set to sort instead of shuffle.

16 hands of poker were dealt from the sorted shoe

FOURTH INCIDENT

The report did not indicate which cards were out of place.

155 hands in total were dealt with the incorrect decks.

SIXTH INCIDENT
17 hands of BJ dealt from a shoe with 1 missing card.

The report did not indicate which card was missing

I bet this suspension has been the most painful for zk. He is probably pounding at his keyboard as we speak wanting to type. Should give him a reprieve of 1 day, or add it to his next suspension since I would bet one gets created over this thread.

Shufflemasters have a sort mode that will scan/identify the cards electronically and sort the deck/shoe back to the order they would be when new from the factory
