      Hello!

      I have a pretty wierd question about upcoming cards.
      Lets say i have KJ and i fold it preflop, 2 players continue and the flop comes: A Q 10. Now if i would have called, would the flop still be the same or different due to the timing delay?

      I am not entirely sure. If you had taken the same time to call that you did to fold the cards will be same anyway otherwise I haven't seen mentioned anywhere that they keep shuffling after first card has been dealt.

      On the other hand once you folded it shouldn't matter. :D

      The cards that come do not make your decision any better or worse.

      is you have 72o for example you should normally fold UTG . If the flop comes 777 well be it. It won't happen often enough to make you money in the long run to justify playing it.

      Hey Idle7,

      Except at Full Tilt. They use a continuous shuffle so technically you can manipulate the draw of the next card. Good luck trying to time when your card is near the top of the deck lol.

      So in Pokerstars they keep shuffling the deck as long as they need to come on the board?

      I beleive on PokerStars they shuffle until the deck is dealt to the player then it is set. But simply because I havent seen anything mentioned otherwise

      Hey Idle7,

      As thazar has stated, PokerStars use a preset deck. Once the deal starts, the card order doesn't change
