Burn

Fortune Jack Poker

To burn a card is to discard the top card of the deck facedown before dealing the next set of cards. This is done to prevent cheating because the top card of the deck may have been marked or accidentally exposed. Cards discarded in this manner are known as burned cards and are placed in the muck pile.

In the game of hold'em, one card is burned before dealing out the flop, the turn and the river.
