Penalties For The Dealer

It is sometimes agreed that when the dealer holds a Tricon, Sequence,

Flush, or Pair, and his hand is beaten by either of the others, he has

to pay the amount of a stake to each player, or only to those who have

better hands than his. The former course will be found to be a severe

tax on the dealer, and is not to be recommended. The dealer only has

the same chances as the others, and such a penalty seems unjust.
