So we had a player at a private tournament not attending that night although he had chips from earlier on. Thus people thought he should have cards just to fold them. Ultimately, one time he didn’t get cards, we took back the cards and shuffled again just so the player not being there could fold some cards.
I don’t get why this is a thing. It’s not like he is away from the table and can come back.
Is this neccessary at all to give cards to people not there?
