Hi everyone. I have noticed that it is harder for me to execute blind shuffles and a few other sleights when I'm working on a bare table or other non felt surfaces. I find it harder to grip the cards (especially from the bottom) hence making it harder to control. I usually practise on a mat. Perhaps I have gotten to used to it?

Is it just me or does anyone else experience this?

Is there a way around this? Any suggestions?

I have the same problem. Practice on a smooth surface(table top).

In a pinch you can actually do most table work that you are used to using a pad for on a newspaper (thicker the better). There is just enough give. I would recommend that you learn some in the hands stuff so that you can perform even when you don't have a table. Also, carry a small mat with you, in your car maybe or my favorite my wife's purse. I find that even a very small mat is all that I need to do my table work.
