How to Avoid having the top card slide off of the poker deck
Want to learn how shuffle a deck of playing cards? In order to be a great dealer for poker, baccarat, blackjack, Texas Hold'Em or any other gambling card game, you're going to need to learn how to properly shuffle the playing cards.
This "How To Shuffle" video tutorial will show you how to avoid having the top card slide off of the poker deck.
This demonstrates how to avoid having the top playing card slide off the deck when you place the deck on a flat surface such as a poker table. The secret is to apply pressure to the top of the deck as you release the deck on to the table. This can be accomplished by pressing down on the top of the deck with one of your fingers. This forces air from between the cards and creates a bit of a suction effect - the top card(s) no longer slide when you release the deck.
