Or any kind of card manipulation for that matter. The sweetest part of any poker hand is when the dealer goes from a Tornado Box Opener to a Buckeye, into a Ribbon Spread followed by a Riffle Shuffle and a Card Spring Flourish before finally dealing out the cards. This is how you achieve full croupier status.
The only drawback to becoming awesome at card manipulation is that it requires practice. Unfortunately, at the beginning this practice usually results in cards flying everywhere. That sucks. To fix this problem, you can do one of three things:
1. Get good quickly.
2. Have 10 or 15 different decks of cards on the table. If one blows up all over the place, let it go. Just grab the next deck and keep on practicing.
3. Have a couple of kids running around picking up all the cards when they fall to the ground. To them, you’re just playing 52 Pickup, and all kids love 52 Pickup.
Remember, it’s not wether you win or loose, it’s how you make the cards dance!
