If someone had a gun at the table, I wouldn't be cheating at all. Period. My life is more valuable.

To be strictly fair, I've seen people shuffling cards face up in the past. According to them it was kinda proof for onlookers that cards were well mixed. Just to keep going being fair, it should have occurred 2 or 3 times and I play cards for such a long time...

Wasn't really very serious game though.

However, one stuff we meet once in a while is people showing the bottom card after a shuffle. For instance guys doing a cascade after a riffle. Not the "in the air" cascade but the one with the cards held perpendicularly above the mat.


Thank you. People DO shuffle face up sometimes. It's pretty common, which is why I'm able to get away with it. I've never been called on it.

Yes, I play at private home games in tournaments with a buy-in of $50-$75 or cash games with a $.50/$1 blinds. Not huge, but profitable.

And you cheat?

You already said you don't cheat.

I don't play for much money, but I would call you on it, and I have a hard time believing you actually shuffle like that and no one calls you on it.

Four pages of this thread, and no one has come right out and said it:

Your video sucks. Big time. It sucks so bad that I thought you were joking. The lamest people I know would not play poker with you. So I don't believe that you are telling the truth. Sorry. Don't want to hurt your feelings. I'm really a nice guy. Ask everyone here. I am. Truly. But your videos suck.

Now, that doesn't matter. If you post a video that sucks and ask how you can improve, then you will get lots of help. That's what this forum is for. But if you post a video that sucks and then try to tell us you're moving in real games and can show us how to do it ourselves, then you become a laughing stock. Again, I don't want to hurt your feelings. I'm just telling you how we think in this forum.

One more comment: you play some pretty sounding stuff on your guitar with a kind of slap technique. Then you post another video of guitar playing with a slap technique. Then a third and a fourth.

I truly say this with love in my heart and a desire to help you: you need to broaden your horizons, learn from others, taste the world, be open to learning, expand, grow, become someone who knows that the world is very big and has unknown mysteries that will enrich you if you only slow down and say...

..."can you help me?"...

...instead of trying to teach people who have already been there and done that long before you even got interested in the subject.

What? Are you now going to give me a lecture on Aristotle or something?

Again, I am being helpful and kind. Breathe twice, re-read this post twice, then think twice about how to respond. I only want to help.

Your new buddy Jeff.

Stop banging your head against the wall. You're starting to annoy the wall.

Perhaps you misread or misunderstood me?

I've seen such a shuffle 2 or 3 times in my life. Was kind of family/friend games with old guys (you know, the ones full of definitive ideas).

I've seen 25 millions overhand shuffles and 50 millions riffle shuffles (approximately Smile).

Conclusion? I don't think it's a good idea to keep practicing it...

Of course, just in case you wanna everyone to stare at you everytime it's up to you to deal, it's a good one...

I'll admit, Jeff, that my intital thought was that the video was a parody recorded just for laughs, especailly after reading the authoritative warning provided. Sadly, I was mistaken, and now wish that, like Jason,I'd fallen aslseep a few seconds into the never-ending shuffle.

"Those who has to say they is.......ain't".

I guess more importantly, did you cheat?
Did you shuffle face up with that nasty magic stacking routine of yours?

If you just won some cash at a poker game........so what?

It may in fact be time for you to bid a quiet farewell to the Gambling Spot and go wow some kids at the Penguin or Ellusionist forums with your grainy pictures of $20 bills.

If that's not the funniest post I've read all year, I don't know what it is.

That Clock seconded himself with a double post is rather sublime...
