Formation Of The Table
11. If there are more than four candidates, the players are selected by
cutting; those first in the room having the preference. The four who cut
the highest cards play first, and again cut to decide on partners. The
two highest play against the two lowest. The highest is the dealer, who
has choice of cards, seats, and counters; and having once made his
selection, he must abide by it.
12. When there are more than six candidates, those who cut the fifth and
sixth highest cards belong to the table.
