Texas Hold'em maximum amount of players

Dear Mark,
A friend of mine and I were talking about the maximum amount of players at Texas Hold'em. I said 22 players and he said only 21 could be the maximum because by tradition you can't use the last card in the deck. Please settle this argument. John M.

Unlike blackjack, John, in Texas Hold'em, you do not discard the top card of the deck prior to dealing a round. So, theoretically, Texas Hold'em can be played by up to 22 players (44 player cards, three burn cards, and five community cards).

As to some unwritten law of not using the last card, I've never heard
of it. Also, since Hold'em is generally played among 2 to10 people,
you'll only see a spread larger than that late at night when the poker
room is short a dealer, or in tournaments when they occasionally
combine two tables.

As for myself, I've never sat in on anything larger than a 12-handed
