    This was very helpful when I read Expert at the Card Table by S. W. Erdnase. If I didn’t watch this, I would have no idea what to do when it said to preform running cuts. Now I can do them well with the blind cuts that go with them!

    It’s quite interesting: many moves done at the card table (Tabled Riffle Shuffle, Running Cuts, Fancy One-Handed Table Cut) start with the same grip on the cards, grabbing the long edges with the thumb on one side, the ring and middle finger on the other.

    This can be turned into a false cut if you quickly draw the BOTTOM cards instead. Done with the right speed and cleanness, it is undetectable except under close examination.
