Step 1: Dealing the First Round
As you will see in the upcoming steps, the first round is played slightly different than the rest of the rounds. The dealer for the first round is completely arbitrary, if you have some method of choosing a dealer that you are familiar with you may use that, otherwise the dealer for the first hand does not matter. The dealer will deal all of the 52 cards out to the players one at a time starting on the dealers left and going clockwise. Depending on the number of players one or two players might end up with an extra card, but for the first round the cards should be dealt as evenly as possible.
