Well that was like... the bare minimum of stacking skills.. only 3 players and only 2 cards.

just a few pointers,
-you need to go way faster on the shuffles, when you get to the actuall stacking part.
- practice stacking 4 cards face up. that way you can stack less cards with less difficulty.
- rarely when playing poker do you find a 3 player game. try stacking with more players.

when I started riffle stacking I started stacking the 4 aces, face up in a 4 handed game. I found this quite easy and reasonable to start with. then you can work your way up after that.

Well since most games will be playing texas holdem I like to just do 2 cards face up and then see how many cards I can hold back at one time I find that the more I try the eaiser it becomes to hold back the low number of cards

I just got I to open 10 hours after my first attempt.(lol)
I think when you do your cut then pass you need to do it slower and not leave such a huge gap between the two stacks. it looks like your doing it quickly becasue the cut doesn't matter.
I think the speed is fine it might be a little slow on the first but I think its really the sound that kills it much like the bottom

Well thank you everyone Smile Just to mention it I was kinda tired late that night when I filmed that, and I wanted to stack EXACTLY 2 aces because the game was texas hold em. and as steve forte mentions in his GPS tapes: Controlling only one or two key cards in a game can give you a major advantage. Yes, I can stack 3 aces, that's what I have been doing today, and I can stack even four, but I don't kinda like it because I think that in a real game, 4 aces would be suspicious. That I learned actually from Rod the hop. So I decided to stack 2 aces. I know I must go faster, and I am improving every day so far...

I also have practiced the shade switch, I could post a video soon Smile

Thanks,

J0ma

You've now got blackack. As time moves on you will be able to add more cards and more hands to the stack for different games. Great beginnings keep it up!

I got this idea yesterday, I started immediately practising it: I stack 3 aces, and get the 2 first for myself and the 3rd comes at the flop so I have a good possibility to end up with a full house Smile

Just because you practice stacking 4 aces doesn't mean you have to stack 4 in a game. it means you will be able to do it if nesessary, also it will help you for stacking multiple hands if you ever get into that..for things like double duking.

it has nothing to do with why you would or would not do it in a game, right now it's for practice.

sodman, I totally agree with you on the holding back more cards. at first I had problems holding back 4, cause I was so used to holding back 3 cards, I could do it without looking. I decided it was time to kick it up a notch and try 4 cards... well I couldn't do it well enough.. so I kicked it up 4 more notches and tried holding back 8 and stacking 2 hands at once... I tell you .... 8 is fricking hard... but 4 is a breeze now... second nature.

The hold back cards are the ones which you put between the 2 aces.
for example for 3 people texas holdem you hold back 2 cards.
I don't think there is a need to stack a 5 handed game in one shuffle since doing one shuffle in a game would not be enough although it would be good for pracitce.
Joma you should work on double duking which is dealing a good hand to someone else and an even better hand to you such as AA vs. KK

Ive been working on holding back more but I think 4 is about the most your going to need to hold back since in four shuffles it will stack you whatever you need in a 9 handed game
you can fool all of the people some of the time and some of the people all the time but never all of the people all the time.
