Running the Reach
A Character who has no Gambit remaining is considered “Bust” and is unable to continue acting in the current Hand without aid from other players. This represents a state of poor luck, confidence, or health, depending on the situation and the narrative choices of both players and Dealer.
A Busted Character is one in real danger, as they are at the mercy of the Dealer and the House, should the Dealer win the Hand.
A Character can only die if:
- They are at Zero Story Points
- They Folded in the preceding Hand
- The Dealer wins the Pot
