I Learned How to CHEAT at POKER!!

– Alright, we’re good? What’s up! Ok, we did it, we did it,
we hit a million subscribers on this channel,that’s
incredible I’m still at a loss for words, I didn’t
think we’d hit it this soon. I expected January 2019 was the goal. We smashed that so thank you
to everybody who subscribed this means the world to
me, it means that you know, things are looking up obviously so, I just want to take a
second to acknowledge that and thank you guys so
much, I will by the way be doing the giveaway
within the coming weeks I just have some other stuff planned out such as this video here.
Second bit of news, I am currently selling uncut
sheets of first playing cards. An uncut sheet basically is before they go into the cutting process, they’re laid out in sheets and a lot of
people including myself like to use these sheets
as office decoration, there are only 100 available,
I think already half of them are gone but I’ll leave
the link below if you guys want to check those out.
Today is an interesting video, this is something, an
idea that I’ve had of mine that I wanted to do for
a long time and I wasn’t quite sure how to do
it, how to go about it. But, I’m basically going
to learn how to cheat at Hold ’em, so the whole idea here is to be able to shuffle a deck of cards, make it look like it’s being shuffled when actually placing
the cards that you want at certain places in the deck,
and then dealing them out. There are many, many magic
books that exist out there. I’ve got a collection
of a ton of magic books. Some dating back to like the 1800’s. The book we’re going to
focus on today is considered the Holy Bible of card, magic
and card cheating even today. It was published in 1902 and it is called The Expert At The Card
Table by S.W. Erdnase. (upbeat ambient music) Now this book has been in the
center of a lot of controversy over the years, especially when
it was published because it basically showed you how to
cheat people out of their money, and you were also exposing
magic in a book so two no-nos, the magic industry was
definitely not quite happy with Mr. Erdnase which by
the way is a pseudonym. No one knows who this guy really was. Now these techniques are
very very sleight intensive and take years to master to make them look effortless and to actually apply them in a game of Poker or playing cards. In offering this book to
the public, the writer uses no sophistry as an excuse
for it’s existence. The hypocritical can’t of
reformed gamblers or whining, mealymouthed pretensions
of piety are not foisted as a justification for imparting
the knowledge it contains. Fancy words, but it will not
make the innocent vicious or transform the past-time
player into a professional or make the fool wise, or
curtail the annual crop of suckers, but whatever
the result may be, if it sells it will
accomplish the primary motive of the author, as he needs the money. All about the money. The reason he wasn’t
arrested back in the day for releasing this book
was because he sold it as a guide how to spot a
cheater and not how to cheat at cards which is pretty
tricky and also why he used the pseudonym, so he wouldn’t get caught. Really interesting, I’ll
leave the link below to this book, you can check
it out, there are all sorts of different paperbacks,
super cheap but a lot of fun, super interesting magic
history behind this. Another interesting thing
is that there are a range of playing cards that
were dedicated and devoted to this book, you had
playing cards that literally, the back design was the book,
you also had people replicate what they believed to be the actual cards that Erdnase used back in
the day, which are known as the squeezers and then a friend of mine Daniel Madison released with
Ellusionist one of the most creative decks I’ve ever seen,
this deck actually mimics what the cards looked like in the book. So I did want to give you a
bit of history and background about this before we dive
into myself learning something this difficult, I do want
to show you the process of me learning and I do also
want to break down how to read a magic book because
they’re not easy reads, they’re very heavy and many
times, because they’re so old they use all these words
that we don’t use today. So hopefully, that’ll be
a little bit more clear for you guys so, although
this is not a tutorial because that’s not my
intention is not to teach you, but I do want you to
watch me learn something and then maybe that’ll help you
learn something on your own. Enough talking, let’s dive in. Again, sorry for the lengthy intro but I do think it’s
important that you guys know a little bit about the
history of this book. OK, so what we are going to learn is Stock Shuffling, retaining
Stock while shuffling. Now I’ve never attempted
to learn this, I know of all the lingo and I know
technically, or I know actually theoretically how all of it’s
done and not technically. So first of all, you have to know how to overhand shuffle, most people know how to shuffle this way, they’re
obviously in more of the eastern countries,
people shuffle like this but you will need to shuffle like so. So the In-jog is something
we’re going to be using. The In-jog is a protruding card over the little finger of the
left hand so when I’m here, I’m either In-jogging this
card, and then shuffling off, giving me a nice Break here when I want to go and grab it and the
other way to do that is to simply riff one off down here. Obviously those are pretty big In-jogs, you don’t need them that big, but for demonstration purposes
that’s what an In-jog’s gonna look like which allows you to cut directly at the
Break if you need to. Out-jog is the same thing, but up here. (cards shuffling) So you’re going up here so that you may grab at the Break, OK?
The Break obviously is, let’s say we In-jog, (cards shuffling) and hold at the Break, we’re
going to want to hold there. Bit of a tricky situation, and then Throw, throwing on top which
basically means taking the rest of whatever’s left on
your Break and throwing it on top, obviously Shuffling
Off is just shuffling without design and that’s
really all you need to know for this, the rest you
don’t really need to know. So, you need to know Injog, Outjog, Break, and how to Shuffle Off. So what we wanna know
is the Two-Card Stock. Basically, if you’re
playing Texas Hold ’em, and you want to deal
yourself a winning hand or deal whoever a winning
hand, this is going to teach us how to do that
through an overhand shuffle. Obviously, this is an old book and if you haven’t read a magic book before, things might seem super,
super complicated. The two desired cards are placed on top, undercut about half the
deck, In-jog the top card, run two less than twice
the number of players, Out-jog and Shuffle Off,
undercut to Out-jog, forming a break at the
In-jog, run one less than number of players,
Throw to the Break, run the number of players,
In-jog and Shuffle Off. Undercut to In-jog, and
Throw on top (chuckles). Now that sounds way too
complicated, but they do end up breaking it down
on the next page here. Let’s do exactly what they say
and see if we can learn this. Assuming that this is a
five-handed Poker game, so five people, and we’re
playing Texas Hold ’em. Two kings, the desired cards
which are placed on top. Alright, let’s go do that,
I’ve placed both kings on top, what do I do next? I
undercut about half the deck and then In-jog the top
card that is, to push one of the kings slightly
over with the little finger into the left-hand pack
with the left hand, OK. So grab half the deck, I’m
gonna In-jog this card, just that single card,
it is done the instant the undercut is made and just before the right hand makes a
downward motion to shuffle so, as soon as this is
done I need to do this, OK. A little bit of muscle memory here. Run two less than twice
the number of players, OK. Bit of math here, that
which would be eight so, because we are five players,
five times two is 10, two less than twice the
number which is eight. So I run eight and then Out-jog so, one, two, three, four,
five, six, seven, eight. Out-jog. Out-jog meaning,
placing this one forward so we got the In-jog back
here, we got the Out-jog now and Shuffle Off which
means, shuffle the balance to the right-hand packet,
the left hand without design. The left little finger
and the first fingers now hold the in and out jog, correct. Left little finger, first finger, got it. The next operation is to
undercut to the Out-jog, forming a Break at the In-jog,
OK that sounds complicated but what they mean here is I’m going to apply pressure here and I’m going to apply pressure here and I’m
going to come together. Nope, you lost me. Oh God. In-jog this one. One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight. Out-jog, run the rest, now at the Break. Boom, so at the Break now I’ve created this other little Break by doing that. Let’s do that one more time, and so the right hand finger
easily find the Out-jog and the right thumb presses
up a little on the In-jog and forms and holds a
space under the packet. (cards shuffling) Out-jog. Run. That right there. I’m making that Break happen. OK, so once I have this, run one less than the number of players, so four. One, two, three, four and Throw the Break. That is, pass the rest of
the cards above the Break into one pack on the left which is done by lessening the thumb pressure somewhat and slightly accelerating
the downward motion. Throw the rest on top,
got it, run the number of players which is five, one, two, three, four, five, In-jog and then Shuffle Off. (cards shuffling) And then undercut at the
In-jog, so that’s the In-jog, undercut, and then Throw on top. Technically if we are five players now, one, two, three, four, five. One, two, three, four, five, I mean, that’d be
a good hand too, but hey. Pocket kings baby, OK! It wasn’t that difficult
I mean there is some, the difficult part I think is, is not necessarily
learning all the things, you can learn all the
things and do it slowly, I think the hard part is
getting it up to speed and making it look normal and then also doing the math if you’re like
six people or eight people or seven people or two
people, I’m going to try this one more time so, we got the kings on top. Let’s try this bit a little bit faster. (cards shuffling) (cards slapping on table) But can we do it faster? I guess there’s a light touch on it. Two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight,
Out-jog, run the rest. Catch the Break, catch the Break. Run one less than the amount
of players so it’s one, two, three, four, Throw on top the rest. Run the number of players,
one, two, three, four, five. In-jog, run the rest, grab at
the Break, Throw on top. One, two, three, four, five. One, two, three, four, five, OK. Alright, I’m gonna try this
as fast as I can and then we’re gonna move on to doing
it with a different amount of players and see what happens. (cards shuffling) (cards slapping on table) That one was a little bit faster. This is after like, about
10 times of doing it. Speed is increasing, my
hands and muscle memory are starting getting
used to the moves and I’m stammering less, I’m not
staggering as much as I was. (cards shuffling) (cards slapping on table) Alright, we’ve got that down I think. Now, let’s see if we can
do it without thinking let’s try to go with, let’s go with a seven player game, break,
seven players so it’s seven times two, 14 minus two, 12. (cards shuffling) Out-jog, then it should rest, boom and boom, got my Break there. Two less than the number
of players that’s five. No, one less. (cards shuffling) Six, Throw the rest on
top, the number of players, one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, In-jog. (cards shuffling) Grab at the In-jog, Throw on
top, let’s go, seven players. One, two, three, four, five, six, seven. (cards slapping on table) Ay-Hum! Ooh, baby!
(cards riffling) That is cool. I’m gonna probably perfect
it and eventually use it. So, I’ll come back in a couple weeks after practicing this and
I’ll see if I still got it. Let’s try it one more time,
let’s do a four player game. (cards shuffling) (cards slapping on table) Ooh, pocket sixes. OK,
still need some polishing, but that was a lot of fun
now, after a few weeks’ practice I might be
ready to actually cheat at the card table with this technique. Hope you enjoyed that,
I’ll leave the link below if you guys are interested in checking out Expert At The Card Table or these cards, I’ll try to leave as many links as I can so you guys can check all this out. Leave a thumbs up, thanks guys. So hard, so difficult, I
will be practicing though, it’s not something that
I’m gonna take lightly, it’s something that I won’t demonstrate until I master it and
that’s one of the things a lot of people forget to
do nowadays is practice before they show it on
camera and hopefully in a year from now I can
come back to this video and show you exactly
how fire my skills are. I think the hardest
part, as well as magic, as well as playing guitar,
is to do something else at the same time and with
magic is even more interesting is that you have to
make it look effortless, make it look like you’re doing nothing, where you’re actually doing something extremely difficult and you have to talk, and you have to be
presentable and sociable and that is where magic
is really difficult, especially Sleight of Hand card magic. In this instance, I think
it’d be worth it to learn how to talk to people while you can do the mental calculations
and the sleight of hand at the same time, kind of like singing and playing the guitar,
most magicians just focus on a technical aspect
but you do have to meld those two together and that’s
where the art form comes in. Anyways guys, if you did
enjoy this video and you want to see more of this, go ahead

me know what you thought of this video and subscribe

button and all that jazz, we’ll see you on the next video. Peace, rah! Ooh, by the
way, paste boards was a hit, I love paste boards,
the reaction was great, I’m filming episode two this
week, I will let you know soon on my Instagram who
those people are going to be ’cause there are more than one, check out my Instagram below if you
guys want a sneak peek at that this week, alright peace, bye! (speaking in foreign language) (upbeat accordion music)

  1. Wouldn’t the hard part be getting the Kings or whatever cards you’d want at the top of the deck? You can’t exactly just sort through the deck while everyone’s watching and put two cards at the top.

  2. Hahaha, except, in all texas holdem game's at non casino events, the person to the right of the dealer cuts the deck again.



  3. As a poker player I don't approve of this video. However I appreciate your not responsible for anyone's action and all info should be shared. However I know this set a spark in some minds that might manifest lol

  4. every time I do the trick, the second card is always one card later than it should be, so it is the first card of the flop, can anyone help?

  5. so how many people watch his videos and actually practice magic and how many people just like to watch? curious

  6. "I expected 1 million subs in January 2019 as a goal", actually 2.5 M, just saying…you deserve more, congrats bro!!!

  7. how do i get a sheet of your cards? i've asked you many ways for the deck and you won't respond, am I way too late or what. i'm just learning magic and you've been my biggest inspiration, but I'm starting to mfeel like I'm being ignored… and that shit is fucked. peace. Please just respond to me. Thanks nyryanreynolds

  8. I learn magic from you and
    Show to my friends .
    They have great reaction.
    Thank you Chris Ramsay
    Love from India 🇮🇳

  9. i just like how he keeps saying i am gonna put a link of everything in the description below…. and ta-daa, description is empty.

  10. Any ways youll never shuffle the cards by your own except you wanna cheat on your friends in a home game
    That would be silly

  11. Paperless Payments Propaganda is the next step for giving up control over your money and I will not go this step to it's fullest.

  12. The real trick would be if you could find a dealer in Vegas who actually deals that way. Now that would be magic!

  13. The thing is, you wouldn’t really be able to use this technique because you’re supposed to let the player to the right of the dealer cut the deck.

  14. Я твой подписчик подари мне карты хотя бы одну колоду мой адрес.Приморский край Пограничный район с.Бойкое ул Ленина д 4 кв 1.
    Счастливцев Виктор Александрович.

  15. love the ideal and love to see how you learn.. on this note i will never play cards with you or your friends even if i had the chance lol
