It would be a shame to derail the main thread with arguments about the normal draw rules or hand cap, so let's discuss it here instead and keep that thread about the characters. Additionally, please try to avoid long arguments that go on and on. If you have a major disagreement with someone, take it to PM or chat or something to work it out. I am mildly in favour of a handcap, having tried it for a while. I see it as a safety net for extreme cases. Shouldn't be surprising. Good players will do what they think is optimal, even if they don't feel it's best for the game. Garcia is good at changing from player hat to designer hat.
