S.D. Admin. R. 20:18:16:40 - Maximum number of players

The house shall set the maximum number of players for each type of poker game. When the dealer realizes that there are not enough cards to complete the game and a player or players have received down cards, all remaining live cards and burn cards, excluding the muck, must be reshuffled to form a new deck which must be used to deal to the remaining player or players. If the dealer runs out of cards in the games of seven-card low stud poker, seven-card high stud poker, and seven-card high-low split stud poker, the dealer must burn a card and then deal a seventh card face up as a community card.

The muck is the discard pile.
