Inability to "peak" at cards in the deck.
Yes, he's pretty strong play at times in live play; sometimes more so for the information he provides regarding what ISN'T in play currently, than for the chosen card....specially for the French..as I recall they see 8 cards...and can then shuffle the unchosen back into the deck...with the probability that those certain cards might not have 'returned' to the top of the deck.
Here in ACTS though, there is no current system to allow (that I know of) to have a 'consideration' hand (where you're holding an essentially
temporary hand). The cards drawn HAVE to go into your hand and one discarded from there.
So, it's a totally different play style and effect here unfortunately; IMO.
