I do not know but I am guessing, if the player can see his hole cards why can’t they who are running the game. As for predicting I think, some guys did do just that some years ago. My limited understanding is the computer does not shuffle a virtual deck, but it picks one out at random from 1000s of shuffled decks. . Imagine a big circle of shuffled decks each at a certain position like the numbers/divisions on a clock, the clocks hand spins around points to a deck. Each hand it picks a different deck and that deck is dealt but after the hand is dealt, that deck returns to the same place on the virtual clock it came from and it is in same shuffled order. By Timing the spin they knew which deck it picked then it was a matter of keeping a record of the decks position and the order the deck was in. Therefore, when they knew what deck the computer picked then they knew the order and was able to predict every card before it was dealt. They now say they changed the way it works but I bet some one will have a found new way to beat it. [/quote]
