Your scenario sounds like a dealer that is either really new, not trained well or a blackjack/pai gow dealer switching over to poker. What surprises me is that the other players at the table where not immediately correcting the dealer while this was happening. Dealers make mistakes all the time. Stuff happens. Hands get mucked by accident, etc - I've seen ...

It's important to realize that running it more than once does not change the odds at all. It will only reduce the variance for you and your opponent. If you want to reduce your variance as much as possible, you could run it as many times as the stub (remaining cards in the deck) would permit. Even more efficient would be to just chop the pot based on your ...

I've had a fair bit of experience with nootropics - I'm narcoleptic, and a lot of what people use as nootropics are on-label prescriptions for me. I'd say that if you feel like you can focus on the game, pay attention to the players around you, and do the basic statistics math (pot odds / outs / etc), then you're not at a disadvantage. Without exlporing the ...

Nothing, besides perhaps criminal investigation. Poker is not a sport with a sanctioning body like the NBA, NFL etc, that has sanctioning powers in this respect. Casino promoters, (Use this term as a catch all for the operators and organizers) have regular powers to disqualify players, but unless there was some kind of incident, like a fist fight at the ...

I like Chris's comment as the answer. I would say no, you cannot. It is tacky and rude. It is not a bet within the scope of the casino's license, so technically it is an illegal bet. To make the bet you would have to discuss the hand in progress in such a way as to violate the rule about discussing the hand in progress.

I think this is unanswerable. If you have n players before you, and the maximum time they have to decide is t seconds, then you have at most nt seconds. But we all know that most players won't take that long to decide. I would guess that the distributions of time taken is uniform, meaning that the average time you get to decide is nt/2. If the distribution ...

I don't think there are set numbers on how often you should run the board. If anything, most people base it the pot equity of the respective hands. A flip is going to get less runs than other hands that are more dominated. In some cases, running it 3 times (as you suggest) may be too many or too few. It just depends on the hands at the given time.
