Well the times they are changing and perhaps some casinos have started using the wider size cards because of or for the televised poker comps.
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

@Joey:
i also use the Scott's grip for the strike SD, but it seems slightly different from this you are using fro the pushoff. You learned it from ECT?

@Cag:
I got the advice to start practising with plastics from here, I bought some Aviators and they sprang all over my room in the first 10 mins of practice. It's a good training, I realized how important is to get a feel to handle other brands of cards.
I actually feel that some false deal gets better with plastics, because of the grip they make with the finger, but it might be an impression.
Since I literally destroyed my cards, what brand are common/good to try? I'll also try some bridge sized plastics, out of curiosity, and hoping they aren't much expensive.

@JFX and Marcos:

For plastic cards check MAcD's excellent post: Plastic is fantastic (a short view on plastic cards).

In my area of the world, Kem Bridge size card for poker are the most common. I use them because players recognize them most readily. Personally I like Copag cards and they are fairly well known to players.

For the purchase of a first deck I would suggest Bicycle Prestige (cheapest to buy) or Copags because I personally like them and they are easily available. Kems are more common and durable, but not my first choice. Copags come in both poker and bridge size, but I think Prestige may come in poker size only. With plastics I work mostly with bridge size cards since they are almost universal in the US for poker games.

Interestingly, casino poker rooms are moving to , or already have, their own personalized plastic playing cards made with their own logo or identity on the backs.

"I would suggest Bicycle Prestige "

Right. The only playing cards that you will drop BEFORE handling them, because the box is just notorious piece of failure.

I have dropped a few plastic decks of cards in my lifetime, but always AFTER I took them out of the box. But then again, I am very adroit when handling the box...the deck itself, maybe no so good. Smile

So I got the pack of copags that I ordered in the mail today. After handling them for about half an hour I made a couple short clips.
Here is one of them:

- Riffle stacking
- Top stock control

I like that they are so thin but still have a good spring to them. However, I was quite surprised about how slippery they are.
By the way these are poker size plastics. I thought switching to plastic bridge sized cards is a little overkill Smile One step at a time.

Once you got used to them being so slippery, I like them for riffle shuffle work. False deals are a little more tricky in my opinion.

Yup, already got those filmed in the same session. But I'll save those up for another time. I spammed the forum quite a bit lately Smile

Copag makes a very nice card in my opinion. Kem cards can sometimes be quite annoying as they tend to buckle but are still used extensively. While I have a few plastic poker sized decks, I work exclusively with bridge sized cards because that is all they use in my part of the world and they have less surface to work with.

Have fun although I think you need more of a challenge. How about rubber cards next? Smile

The challenge for me will be bridge sized cards. In my area there is a popular game called "Schafkopf" that is played with a deck of 32 bridge sized cards. Never liked to handle cards in that format.

Normally I don’t much like the look of that move but that was beautiful.

Very cool! Loved the wash control! I honestly didn't think it could be done deceptively, and that proves me wrong.
I think I've seen it from Steve Forte, but he doesn't count.

Also, did you unlisted all your videos? I hope they're still available

Yes, I either deleted them or made them private.

Thank you Felix. It's quite a compliment if scrambling cards on a table still looks smooth Smile
