      Different Rooms deal cards in different ways, your best chance is to email their support.

      The last i recall PokerStars does not burn any cards, but thats the only one i know off :]

      The purpose of a burn card is so that it is impossible to tell what card is coming next if they are marked.

      Since this is not an issue online, I doubt sites would bother to simulate this. Many sites also use a "continuous shuffle" whereby the deck is constantly randomised until the cards need to be dealt.

      As my fellow Matt says, though, this would vary from site to site so asking their support would be the best bet.

      Yes, FTP has made this continuous (<-- What a courious word) shuffle. And every time when I get a suck, I flame myself, why I did not wait a second longer before I call the all in. :rage:

      :D
