For problem set 3, whenever I use a word that has a letter that exists in the dictionary 'hand' it removes 2 instances of that letter instead of once. I also get an error whenever I choose a word like 'loop'. I checked the code and makes sense in my head, also the testing function indicates update_hand is correct. http://pastebin.com/Nm7d2v0U

    if you are only calling update hand once for each valid word, then the problem Must be in update hand. put a print statement in update hand and around each line that calls it and see if update hand is executing more than once.
