Often, all the cheat cares about are the high cards. Some systems mark the 10s, jacks, queens, kings, and aces with an identical mark, while the rest of the cards are left unmarked. This is called a two-way combination (high/ other) and is the standard system for blackjack. For poker, most paper players prefer a four-way combination: the queens, kings, and aces are uniquely marked and the rest of the deck remains unmarked. Some cheats mark for “suit and size,” and others for size (rank) alone. The fewer cards marked, the less chance of discovery.
As we’ll later see, the cheat will add ﬁnishing touches like counterfeit “boxing” and “stripping” that give the entire sequence the look and feel of a genuine casino shufﬂe. False In-the-Hands Riffle Shuffle This shufﬂe resembles what goes on in most home games. The deck is held vertically in the right hand and the right thumb rifﬂes off about half the pack into the waiting left ﬁngers (Fig. 1). The left hand takes control of its cards, mirroring the right, and the two packets are rifﬂed together so that the cards interlace.
In draw, avoid spreading the cards in a wide fan. While this is no guarantee—the cards can be read before they’re dealt, or on the way over—it sure beats leaving the cards exposed. In home games the best defense is to provide your own cards. Use quality, name brand cards, and open the cards in front of the other players. Once the game starts, protect your hole cards as described above, lest they be marked during the game. Scouring the deck for marks is usually the last step in ferreting out paper.
