The Deal

31. Each player deals in his turn; the order of dealing is to the left.

32. The player on the dealer's right cuts the pack, and in dividing it

he must leave not fewer than four cards in each packet; if in cutting

or in replacing one of the two packets a card is exposed, or if there

is any confusion or doubt as to the exact place in which the pack was

divided, there must be a fresh cut.

33. When the player whose duty it is to cut has once separated the

pack, he can neither re-shuffle nor re-cut, except as provided in Law


34. Should the dealer shuffle the cards after the cut, the pack must be

cut again.

35. The fifty-two cards shall be dealt face downward. The deal is not

completed until the last card has been dealt.

36. In the event of a misdeal the cards must be dealt again by the same
