Tristan,

I believe diz475 was trying to decide if TDA #31 b) two or more exposed or boxed cards. Should we consider 1 boxed card and 1 exposed card equal to: 2 boxed cards or 2 exposed cards? That (I believe) is a legitimate question based on the way the rule is written.

Earlier on this post, Stuart defined substantial action: "Action is prescribed by current TDA rules as 2 actions involving chips or 3 not." Now, how do you interpret that?

The two actions must both put chips into the pot? or at least one of the two? Interesting because the rule was changed from version 1.0 to 2.0 after the 2011 Summit.

I also have a new question: Why do we mention; players may be dealt two consecutive cards on the button? Perhaps, under the title Misdeals we should only list the conditions for a misdeal.

Am I correct that the majority agrees that, when it comes to boxed cards or exposed cards, a. misdeal should only apply on the initial deal of all starting hands, prior to any further action? If so, then we should change it.
