The one thing I'm just kinda nervous about is making mistakes. I realize they do happen, and there can be some very rare confusing spots that I don't want to screw up and cost somebody an $800 pot.
Mistakes will happen, the idea is to learn from them.
I have (to date) mucked one hand from seat 10 that was not a dead hand until I took it and buried it. I got very careful after that one time in 4 years. (Knock wood)
You will flip cards, everybody flips cards.
You will misdeal, everyone does.
Big mistakes usually come from going too fast.
