Player got dealt 10 and 2 against the dealer's 5, so he stayed. The dealer only had small cards and his total from the 5 cards was 16, meaning that he did not hit soft 17. They decided that the player lost the hand, as 12<16, and took his money.
According to my understanding of the rules, that is what is supposed to happen. Both sides are capped at five cards. It doesn't surprise me they were not sure at this late stage of the field trial.
This goes to show why I say a game inventor has to baby a game through the field trial, observing it for hours for situations like this.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.
