It's happened a couple of times, and a lot the last time I played Pai Gow Poker! The man next to me was looking at every hand I played while I was setting it. I didn't like him looking so I moved back into my chair, but the croupier told me to keep my hands over the table (I guess he took me for a cheater lol ) I was later told that it's not allowed to look at other player's hands because it can give you an edge. How can you get an edge looking at other player's hands in Pai Gow Poker? Most of the time you don't have that much choice when setting your hand, so how can looking at someone else's hand help you? And why didn't the croupier say something if this wasn't allowed? The guy next to me was being pretty obvious looking at my hand almost every play.
