A pool may be formed for any purpose that may be decided upon, and may
be made up according to arrangement. For this purpose, it may be agreed
(a) that each player contribute a coin or counter to the pool at the
commencement of each deal; (b) that whenever the dealer over-draws, he pay
a penalty to the pool; (c) that whenever the dealer receives on ties, he
pay a proportion to the pool, say one-fourth or one-third of his receipts.
Other methods of increasing the pool will present themselves in actual
play, those here inserted being intended as specimens of what may be done,
or to form a basis on which to work.
