Re: Math Pick-up Lines

Which shuffle is superior? Hindu or Riffle?

Re: Math Pick-up Lines

I have never heard of the Hindu shuffle. The Vegas dealer shuffle, shuffle. strip shuffle was considered best.

Re: Math Pick-up Lines

It was the shuffle that Las Vegas dealers used for all  card games.

I am hardly an expert.

Re: Math Pick-up Lines

I learned at dealers school. Taught by the legendary Gene Walker. I taught my brother. We were all dealers here in Vegas and elsewhere. Are you planning to be a dealer?

Re: Math Pick-up Lines

The definition is simple: A good dealer protects himself and the game. This was too rigid for me.

Re: Math Pick-up Lines

I disagree, the point of a blackjack dealer is to distribute randomized cards. If your cards are not random, you're cheating.

Re: Math Pick-up Lines

That falls under the category of protecting the game.

When you cheat, you're tricking pwople to make money. It is not a game, anymore

Re: Math Pick-up Lines

The house rarely cheats, they have the advantage. There have been cases but it is against the law. Players sometimes cheat and that is one of the jobs of the dealer.

Re: Math Pick-up Lines

How can the players cheat in blackjack? They just say split, hit, stand, double, etc
