Amount of card dealt in the second round!

By High King, in The Hobbit Card Game

Maybe the language barrier doesn't make me understand what the rules actually states. But got one question about how many card that should be dealt in the second round:

Should they be dealt as (same amount, etc) how many players started out in the first round, or as how may players is still in the game after the first round is over?

(Especially, in a five player game: two good guys are still there but neither Smaug or Bolg has been eliminated.)
