33. There must be a new deal by the same dealer if during the deal or
during the play of the hand the pack be found to be incorrect or
imperfect; but all points scored on previous hands stand.
34. If any card be found faced in the pack before a lead is made, there

the trump card is turned; otherwise the deal stands.
