I have played around a little with the idea of estimating over cards in using off balanced Faros. While it is quite difficult to make a specific number of over cards drop on top, it is not so difficult to estimate how many have. But like I said I only played around with the idea a little, with some bad bottoms for example: http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=x646ovHM5Mo

Still I think learning to estimate the over cards is a worthwhile thing with faros.
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

Just to sum up: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6T-2xf_bO1E

If I got time I'll add another one using many more faro styles.

Sorry for the poor quality of the video, it seems U2b does his best to massacre them.

Good point. But you've got to deal to yourself a big kicker in order to avoid another player having the 4th ace and a bigger kicker than yours. And full houses are still dangerous Smile.

I would take my chances with trips almost all the time and I would not worry about the 4th aces over the long run...

I've got no room nor a good camera. Hence I need to record in a very small space, that's why you can't watch the dealer deal and I do limited moves. It's just a video to show a concept. Thanks.

I watched all videos , very nice

The only thing I would like to comment is about the faro shuffle , if you know about the faro you can spot it , I mean , you can cover with a faro riffle but it isn't 100% natural as a casual riffle shuffle.

Isn't this an issue to use the faro shuffle on the card table with people you don't know ? if they know about the faro they will spot what you are doing. What you guys think ?

Fill, welcome to the Café!

What do I think? I think that Obama will probably win the election. Maybe not. It's hard to say.

I also think that Pringles are sick and perverted, yet I'm eating some right now.

I'm one sick puppy.

Well depends the way you faro the cards. I'd not use the methods you can watch on the videos at an actual card table. There are ways to conceal the faro, to mimic a riffle very well. I use one with hands almost at the same position when I close riffle shuffle or when I faro. I'll post a video one day or another...
