Cards “Squeeze Marked”

Level 10 : 500-1,000, 100 ante

The floor was called to table 25 to request a change of deck as one of the cards was marked. This was the fifth deck that the table would be using in under two hours. As a new deck was produced the floor explained what would happen if another card was marked.

There was no accusation that any player was deliberately marking the cards but they were being marked when a player was “squeezing”, i.e. bending the cards too much when peeking at their hole cards. This was unacceptable as it was slowing up the game and was unfair. If it happened again the floor would examine every folded hand to determine the culprit.
