Hello, I been Practicing False shuffles, Passes and riffle stacking for the last year. I have practice every day for atleast an hour roughly. I use the lay cull gather up the cards I want. Is there any new culling technique I should learn. If so Please point out some material. Also Should I bother with false dealing and mucking. I figured if I got amazingly good at riffle stacking I wouldn't need the handicap use of a false deal. Is this a true statement or false. I haven't had the chance to play in many games yet considering I am still in high school. But I have won a considerable large amount in a 6 handed game.

Many can do sleight of hand and know a lot but only few % in the world can do it well, so learning to do it well I guess is all that’s left at the end of the day. Anyway have you got Steve Forty’s stuff as there is plenty to learn from him. Or learn to play the game as one needs be good player too. I don't know...there is so much left I don't know where to start.

Think about where you're going and how to get there.

Having a million tools in your toolbox is completely useless if it never leaves your bedroom.

The information you seek is contained many times over in the archives of this very forum.

As exactly what you have said to my thread:

"Why would I tell you. Its pointless to me. Its not like your offering anything for information. Pick up a book and find out for yourself."

It must suck having all this information at your very fingertips, but being completely incapable of actually doing your own research. Just like dying of hunger while sitting atop a pile of food, crying and asking others to feed you.

Unless you enjoy practicing those tools...

I don't sit in front of the mirror for hours practicing blackjack mucks because I'm planning on going to Caesar's. I do this stuff because I love perfecting it.

To blackeagle: Practice because you enjoy it. If you are doing it just to check off a list... then it becomes pointless.

**Disclaimer** If you are just doing this ONLY for the purpose of making money, most of the best hustlers learn one or two scams, perfect them, and forget the rest of the garbage.

Euro I wasn't asking you to tell me anything rather an opinion. In your topic you were begging for information. Offering cash for an incentive. Did Dia Vernon get taught how to do the center deal the day he wanted to learn it. No, he had to search out Allen Kennedy. So don't compare our post. Everything I have learned I taught myself. I simply after for opinions.

Sometimes I think that this board is just one big fathers and sons conflict made worse by the secretive nature of the magic trade - how's that for a troll? Smile

Huh,I asked for possibility, not for information, If you can read correctly.
My topic was "Is it possible....?"

The reason I mentioned about your post is that you were rude.

Look at all threads. it's all serious, nothing for jokes, oh, there are some jokes and laughs; however, it should not be insulting for any other reason.

What I love about this forum is that all post were written with respect no matter what.

Professor X and Luke Skywalker? that's for high school kid. not here.

I always try to be nice and generous but, trust me, I can turn into monster depends on how the person treats me.
Insulting was my MAJOR, If I start to insulting you, I am sure you will cry for stop or **** on you pants.

I am new here as you are; however, before I post my first question, I just sat down and read posts for 8 hours.
and I think that is the minimum respect for this forum and the people.

You want to play with matures? you MUST act and think like mature.

Yeah, but you know why you're doing it. Nor is the stuff staying in your bedroom; you get around, you meet people, you share ideas.

There is an endless amount of reasons why we do this stuff. But it's important for everyone to ask themselves what they're doing and what they want out of it. After that, the road is easier to see, and you're better equipped to follow it.

Asking "What do I do next?" without actually knowing why you're doing it or for what is bound to get you irrelevant answers. Blackeagle, what do you want to do? Take money off tables? Do gambling expose work? Do magic with a gambling flair? Just leanr this stuff because you're interested in gambling? Every different reason will lead you to a different path.

Yes splice is right. Stop thinking like amateurs! Don’t look at details and work out but see the BIG picture and work in.
