When you play in a live casino instead of using online poker software, there's a potential for a card to be accidentally exposed. Don't worry about it when it happens – it's fairly common for the dealer to bounce a card off of somebody's hand or something and flip it up, and that player then gets a new card. When this happens, you have to remember which card it was.
*A competent dealer will announce it and show it to the table. If you have a hand like 88, normally a very playable hand and an 8 is exposed, your hand becomes garbage. Don't curse the dealer – in fact, you should thank her for exposing the 8 and letting you know not to play!
