    Playing the other day at a newer casino with a bunch of new dealers. Here is the situation:

    Part 1: lady at second base has a clear cut "stay" hand. She waves it off and the dealer starts pulling a card out and starts showing it and the lady says "no I said stay." Dealer realized she was in the wrong and had the card face up in her hand. Calls the pit boss and he says to "burn the card."

    Part 2: Different dealer and pit boss, same table, different player. Same thing happens. This time this pit boss says "did you want the card" and the player says no because it was a "stay" hand. He then tells the dealer that the card will be the dealers since she has a 4 showing. She hits a 21 with the card (and a few others). A few of us experinced the last hand where this happened and mentioned that the other time they simply burned the card. The pit boss said " they did it wrong."

    So who is right?

    I have never seen it burned, I had a similar mistake at a five dollar double deck game at Circus Circus in March and the pit boss said muck the hand and reshuffle. I think that it was the most fair way to fix the mistake.

    It varies, but most of the time they play out the players hand and then the floor will tell each player to either stay in the hand, or pull their bet back if they want to(have a crappy hand), they then finish the dealers hand. Other times I have seen the floor tell the dealer to not take the losing bets.

    They were both right.

    Its a judgement call, one pit boss went one way, the other went the other way.

    You might be thinking that one pit boss said "they did it wrong" so that maybe there is a right way and a wrong way in this, but thats just a canned response that can loosely be translated to:
    "I made my decision and it is final. I am not going to argue about it, especially to a bunch of opportunists who waited to witness the outcome before deciding to pipe in if it was right or wrong"

    There really are no hard-and-fast rules about how they will handle misplays or misdeals. It mostly depends on the generosity of the pit boss, IMO.

    I had a situation last weekend at a 2-deck pitch game when the dealer went to deal out her down card, and pulled three cards off the top of the deck. She didn't expose anything and the boss could have just had her put the correct card down. But instead he had her expose all three cards; she had two faces and a 3 and he announced that the dealer had busted and to pay the whole table. That was pretty good!
