This demo shows a typical crooked deal that could be used by a bustout dealer to deliver hit cards to the players in a single-deck blackjack game. In a gaming situation the dealer may gain secret knowledge of the top card. If the card is favorable for the dealer he may use this crooked deal to retain the card on top of the deck for future use.

In this demo the ace of spades is clearly shown on top of the deck. Then three cards are dealt face up, but the ace of spades remains on top of the deck.

In addition to blackjack this crooked deal could also be adopted for other games that require some of the cards to be dealt face-up. A good example would be stud poker.
