Online Poker First

I was in a hand that was deemed “dead”.  Somehow the computer deck had 5 4’s in it.  When the hand was halted only one 4 showed on the table.  It turned out that nobody had a four in hand.  How did the computer find the flaw in the program that allowed 5 fours?  I know we will never know.

No huge likelihood that it would change the outcome of a four person game – but it could have.

It looked like the software found it’s own mistake though.  Very odd.  And everyone in the hand got a $10 credit for the “inconvenience”.

I never thought of misdeals in computer poker before – any one else ever seen one? (and no – this wasn’t a “real money” game).
