Trust everyone but always cut the cards in poker gambling
2013-06-24 17:25
   Cheating at poker can be done and can be seen everywhere. If you know, you can see it in casino or private party, if you don’t know, of course you can not see as cheating is very hidden.
Cheating in social or “soft” games is nearly always done by the dealer, working solo or in collusion with a partner. In most at-home games, the deal moves around the table in a clockwise direction. The player whose turn it is to deal gathers the cards from the previous round, shuffles the deck, announces the game, and deals. Before he distributes the cards, however, the dealer must place the pack in front of the player to his right so that it may be cut. One function of the cut is to begin the deal at a random spot. More important, however, if the dealer is a cheat and has secretly positioned any known cards on the top or bottom of the pack, a cut buries those cards and foils the deception. Overcoming the cut, therefore, is one of the chide problems the cheat must cope with. S. W. Erdnase-the first great cheat to publish his methods-called the cut the “Bete noire” of the cheater’s existence. How do you get around it?

  Amazingly, the cheat has many options. So many, in fact, that to avoid overload I have spread the information over several entries. To begin, here are three bold approaches.

   The cheat’s goal here is to brainwash his opponent so that he decides not to cut the cards. The cheat does this by appearing to cut the cards himself –selling the idea that no additional cut is necessary. Actually, the cut is false. Upon squaring the pack in the hands, the cheat uses his right forefinger at the front end of the pack to swivel the tip half of the deck to the left, where it is taken by the left hand (fig.1) The right hand tables its cards, comes back for the rest of the deck, and places them on top of the tabled portion. It looks like a cut but isn’t for the psych-out to work, the cheat performs the false cut with authority, vigorously slapping the cards to the table in what appears to be a macho, manly cut. The fish may now take the bait or not.

  A more brazen strategy is to run roughshod over the company and not offer the pack for cutting. The slithery bottom-dealer worm (Ed Norton) in the movie Rounders does this all the time. He shuffles and deals and no one calls him on it although he is eventually pummeled to a pulp when caught in flagrante delicto dealing form the cellar). Not offering the deck for cutting goes against all convention but it happens in soft games when nobody speaks up. When a player does object, the cheat apologizes for his oversight and the next time chooses a more subtle weapon, such as “the jump.”

  The brilliant French conjuror Robert-Houdin explained this technique, drawn from the Parisian underworld, in his card sbarpers their exposed or the art of always winning (1861). The deck is placed on the table for cutting. The designated cutter lifts off a packet of cards and places them to the left of the bottom packet. This is standard procedure; normally the dealer completes the cut by placing the bottom portion of the deck on top of the cut-off portion. In stead, the cheat picks up the bottom half of the deck with his right hand and immediately transfers it to his left. He then picks up the remainder of the deck-the original top section-and adds it to the left-hand cards. For some reason this not only looks honest, it can feel honest. In a variation, the right hand slides the original bottom half to the edge of the table where it is taken by the waiting left hand. The right hand goes back for the remaining cards and slides them off the table to join the rest.

  Can cheats actually get away with these kinds of tricks and ploys? Not in fast company. But in a casual game, performed with the requisite nonchalance, Absolutely. For one thing, the moves are not as obvious as they seem. Second, most people in a soft game don’t pay attention. And most important, the skilled manipulator, whether card sharp or conjuror, conceals his technique beneath a blanket of ordinary appearances which render the moves invisible. In the universe of crooked gambling, the word is “shade.” A simple but effective diversion is to ask a question while doing the work. “Is to ask a question while doing the work. “Is the pot light?”  “Anyone object to a game of Chicago?” a question requires a response. The players look at the pot, at each other- and the move breezes by.
