I think that AA will stay as well, I think at most it will receive a bit of rewording or clarifying. 

As for the other thing, I think that killing the hand of the last to act when facing a bet is a bit harsh.  Some dealers do operate pretty fast, and the situation can escalate quickly in times like those.  Even if you decide to use rule 1 at that time, they may have already given away their hand a bit because they were upset thinking their hand was to be killed. 

It might be more confusing, but I like keeping the board card(s) there in a checked round and redoing the board card(s) in the case that a bet was faced and the last player was skipped.

I do appreciate that the situation can escalate quickly.  I'll have to think more about this one... As I said, I don't mind the distinction as suggested by Nick, and the other related alternative would be to clarify that the dealer dealing a new board card constitutes an action explicitly within the definition of substantial action -- that could be a simpler solution.   I am trying to predict what will be an easier sell...

Our cash side of the room uses this.  We deem any two actions as substantial and the dealer does count as one.  I like it.

Ken & Tristan,

 I like considering the dealer as one of the persons counting for substantial action...

 Tristan, I never liked the retraction of the board on a checked round when the last player was skipped but, it is a major change that would affect rules that have been on the books forever.

 I know that we are all aware; the problem we speak of is completely on the dealer. I respect what Ken has pointed out about the time that it takes to tap, and burn before the dealer tables a card but, IMO we are opening a way for some players to argue for a new card, or play the premature card if they like it. Currently, the dealer screws-up and the card can not play.

 I also like the proposal for a skipped player (not last to act) on a checked round to have a live hand, as if he had also checked. I believe he currently could reopen the betting if he were skipped by only 1 or even 2 players.

 I would also insist that the skipped player (facing a bet) has a dead hand once the dealer taps, burns and turns.
