Default Explain this about the random number generators

*Not about being rigged*

When the flop comes out and I am last to act before the turn, does the Party Poker wizard of oz already know what it is going to throw out for the next card or is it shuffling around constantly, and me scratching my ass for a second caused that spade to fall?

The deck is already "shuffled" before the first card is ever dealt. It doesn't matter if you take time to scratch your ass or not.

not correct.

the deck is constantly being shuffled, so the scratch could cause the spade.

Nope, the card is unknown until the software requests a card, only then is the number generator called for the next card.

Lee Jones recently stated that PokerStars at least are preshuffled before the hand starts.

Most sites have a blurb about their RNG and you will find out this is the correct answer.

The correct answer is that it doesn't matter either way.
