There's a nice guy I play with once in a while, acting that way: when it's his deal, he cuts the deck not the traditional way (top half left in front of the pack, then bottom half on top of it to complete the cut), he removes the bottom half from the right short side of the deck and slap it on top of the packet left in his left hand.

Not really the first time I see that kind of cut, sometimes guys separate the deck that way using both hand simultaneously, one half goes to the right (the bottom one), the other one to the left (the top one) and they bring both packets together (well, the bottom pack now being the top packet, it's a fair cut Smile) using some kind of elegant hand language.

Sometimes, he adds a sort of running cut and then he deals. But there's a funny point to mention. If you're on his left and you proceed his way when it's your shuffle/(cut)/deal, 7/10 he just knocks the deck. For those not used with card tables, it means he doesn't want to cut. Usually no one claim for a cut and you just deal.

Here's how I've fooled him 4 or 5 times, lol:

http://www.arnoldmcdonald.org/code/main.php?p=6200000 (video Actual Move #1)

Here's the procedure:

-> 4" - Riffle +3
-> 8" - Push-thru -3
-> 10" - lopsided riffle (not necessary to make it that big, but it's for explanation)
-> 11" - cut the way he proceeds
-> 12" - switch
-> 13" - false running cuts

He has never seen something.

BTW: from now on I'm gonna do like I did in the past, videos will be available until 66 downloads are reached.

Well, maybe 66 is to low...

OK, let's say 100 downloads. Be quick, it's 86 already.

Sorry. To be honest I'm surprised to see how fast every video is downloaded.

New vids to come soon anyway.
