§ 671a.9. Procedure for dealing the cards from the hand.

 (a)  If the cards are dealt from the dealer’s hand, the following requirements shall be observed:

   (1)  An automated shuffling device shall be used to shuffle the cards.

   (2)  After the procedures required under §  671a.5 (relating to shuffle and cut of the cards) have been completed, the dealer shall place the stacked deck of cards in either hand. After the dealer has chosen the hand in which to hold the cards, the dealer shall continue to use that hand whenever holding the cards during that round of play. The cards held by the dealer shall be kept over the table inventory container and in front of the dealer at all times.

   (3)  Prior to dealing any cards, the dealer shall announce ‘‘no more bets.’’

 (b)  The dealer shall deal each card by holding the deck of cards in the chosen hand and use the other hand to remove the top card of the deck and place it face down on the appropriate area of the layout. The dealer shall, starting with the player farthest to the dealer’s left and continuing around the table in a clockwise manner, deal one card at a time to each player who placed and Ante Wager and to the dealer until each player and the dealer have five cards. The last card of the dealer shall be turned face up on the layout.
