Different Ways to Shuffle Cards : The Poker Shuffle for Playing Card Shuffling


I’m Joe Marshall with expertvillage.com and
today we are going to discuss shuffles and cuts. This is a type of poker shuffle you
would see a actual dealer do at a blackjack table or a poker game or on Texas hold them
tournaments on tv. What they would do they would separate the deck like so they come
across with the hands on top. First finger is on the top, fingers on the side, thumbs
on the back and what they would do they would bring the two halves together and just you
their thumbs they start dropping cards from each packet and it would fall just on the
corners. Then their fingers come together, pinkies are on the back. The pinkies do the
pushing and they push in, the fingers on top and the thumb on the back keeps them from
sliding around and they push in and then they come across and square up with all the fingers.
That is the actual legitimated way to do a poker shuffle is to come up fingers on top,
thumbs just let each card drop. Like so, then the pinkies come around back and they push
in, the fingers stay on top, and the thumbs on the back to keep them from sliding around
and they give it a square up and that is the actual legitimated poker shuffle. You want
to do it on the table I guess theoretical you could do that without a table it would
just look funny doing one of these things and coming in like that without a table. It
just looks more awkward then just doing your riffle shuffle without a table. So when you
do your poker shuffles just make sure you split half of the deck and actually getting
into that position both hand start off on top, both first fingers are mirroring each
other, both hand look identical, one of your first fingers comes up and peels of half,
they separate, your first fingers come back around to mirror each other. Both hands should
always look the same. The cards lay on the table. Thumbs let each card go one at a time,
it is just the back corners. Pinkies go on the back. Square up the cards and push in
and then you square up the pack. That is the actual legitimated way to do a poker shuffle.

  1. i have learnt so much from your videos. My problem is that I cannot differentiate the videos, coz all have the same name. Good job!

  2. I'm a dealer as well and the house shuffle is exactly as you say. When you top bottom strip, do you strip it into 4 packets?? If so, then its exactly the same as our shuffle lol

  3. @BidwellRunner I am not trying to be mean with you… But card dealers dont shuffle like this, at least the begging part. He kills (or gives up) cards during the cutting process, he shuffles to high, so that he might see the cards. If you see a "card dealer", ask him/her what a poker shuffle is, and how it might be different from any other type of shuffle.

  4. LOL I love how he (so obviously) looks at the camera the whole time through the shuffle just to show off that "I can shuffle like this without watching what I'm doing"… So tempted to make a video response of me doing it behind my back, just to show him up XD

  5. @xxgt465xx Haha yup, only way you could've made the sarcasm more apparent would have been to beat me over the head with it.
