I spent two months straight on the first chapter of RRTCM, trying to get my overhand shuffle "perfect." I finally decided it was good enough for now and moved on in the book. And I'm glad I did! I've had a lot more fun learning other stuff, and in the meantime, my overhand shuffle is getting better and better.

It helped to see Paul Wilson drop a card or two in the video. Rudy Hunter ain't perfect either in his own RRTCM video. And the other day, I saw a clip of Juan Tamariz on a TV show, and even HE dropped a card.

I'm sure most sleights need to be as perfect as you can make them, but the overhand shuffle isn't one of them.

Mark is right. Shuffling should look random and messy sometimes. It is just more convincing that way.
