The other night we played Hold’em with a three deck shoe. The only thing that seemed to change about the game was better hands were easier to come by. With three decks it seemed that two pair was worthless and the bottom of the barrel was trips. At one point in a three hour game one of us (me) landed a straight flush that was shifted one card from being royal (9,T,J,Q,K-clubs)!
I thought I saw dealer’s shoes used in tournament play, but could find no confirmation of this online. So what are your thoughts?
