I would like to expand and hone my abilities with table shuffles, cuts, and the like. Gambling-type handlings.

There are many resources out there that teach these techniques. What is your favorite one? Who was your favorite teacher to learn from?

It doesn't necessarily need to be 'magic' based. But I am seeking video tutelage. Something starting with basic/intermediate skill levels then expanding into advanced techniques. A concise examination that builds from the ground up.

Thank you. :o)

Jason England's "Foundation" series is very thorough if your looking for video instruction. The Richard Turner videos and Damian Nieman's "Fast Company" are great too.

Don't count out books man. They go into crazy detail and you can go at your own pace.

Hey Bobby thank you for these recommendations. I am not seeking false shuffling and cutting technique. Rather real shuffling and gambling technique.

Something more akin to dealer training.

A dealer school might be better for you - they might be pricey but they are designed to create professional dealers. who knows, maybe with lockdown they've switched to video courses. doing it in person will be of better benefit, though.

The Professional Poker Dealers Hand Book by Dan Paymar and these videos might hight help: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC7P43cTw49KRIitqlIzzoGg

However, why not get a job in a casino and let them train and pay you?
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

Got ya! I was just assuming since you were talking about intermediate and advanced procedures, you meant something more than just legitimate shuffling and dealing. I wouldn't call legitimate shuffling and dealing an intermediate or advanced skill.

Of course the rules and such are a different story but "real" shuffling and dealing is pretty basic

The Paymar/Harris/Malmuth book is pretty much the standard reference if a casino isn't training you.

All poker based, which is presumably what you're asking about.

Great resources guys. Thank you.

In writing 'advanced technique' I had table faro shuffles in mind. But your right Bobby most of the shuffling and cutting used at the table is rather simple in nature.

It would be great fun to take a professional dealer position but I wouldnt have the time.

For table faro stuff, check out Jason England's video or the old Martin Nash Tapes. Be prepared for lots of practice hahaha. Very fun stuff to play with though.

Mechanic Doc Jon shows how to shuffle and deal legit, like a "pro," on the School for Scoundrels DVDs "In the Life with Doc Jon."
