Shuffling Card Tricks
The Black Jack Shuffle
This cool Shuffling card trick is done in such a way that the audience might not even see the movement of the cards.
In addition to that…
This trick does not get the cards dirty or rough.
So how do you do this trick?
Decide the cards into 2 halves, not necessarily equal.
Place the 2 halves on a table with the back of the cards facing up and the bottom corners of each half facing you.
Position your thumbs on the corners facing you. And your index fingers on the other corners (the two corners of the card facing each other). Ensure that the thumb and index fingers are tightly placed on the cards.
Now raise the opposite corners of each half with your thumb then make the cards at each half fall on the other half.
It is quite simple and fun to do just that it requires practice to be good at it.
The Hindu Shuffle
I love this because it can be used for many things.
One, you can use it to control a card. Two, as a top stack false shuffle.
And it is a good shuffle.
So how do you do the Hindu shuffle?
Place the whole card on your left hand if you are a right-hander.
If you use your left to do most things, place the cards on your right.
I will assume you are a right-hander and the card is on your left hand.
Using your right hand, raise the whole cards on top of the left hand with two or three fingers…
Usually your thumb on one side and your index and the middle finger on the other side.
Now use the left hand to pick a little chunk from the top of the card.
Continue to use the left hand to pick little chunks of the card from your right hand until little chunks remain on the right.
You then put the little chunk that remains on the right onto the cards on your left hand.
Shuffling card tricks can look hard at first but I can assure you that it will become easy with practice.
