This situation happened. There were three remaining players. One is all in. Two remaining players start a side pot. They look to the dealer to show the river. Problem is the dealer made a mistake, he started shuffling all the remaining cards with the other player's discards. What should have been the outcome?

There's not much that can be done. Dealer should just complete the shuffle, cut, and deal the river card. Yes, it might be a previously discarded one, but the hand is still as mathematically fair to the players as possible under the circumstances.

  • While fair enough some player usaully the loser is going to go all karen on the dealer. it never turns out well. this is what buffet comps are for.
