in the majority of casinos, very great pains
are taken to try to randomize the deck. Often
the cards are "washed" before shuffling.
This involves taking three or more decks at
a time, placing the cards face down on the felt,
and moving them back and forth like in a washing
machine for at least a minute. This breaks up
the new-deck card sequences, which eliminates
most of the deck order. A fine riffle shuffle
can then be used to separate blocks of cards.
Moreover, the discards are often not inserted
into a discard tray, which would preserve their
order, but into a big can which allows them
to fall about in an unordered sequence. At big-table
Online Baccarat Games, new cards may well be
brought in after every shoe.
The procedure at the smaller tables is very
different. Often mini Online Baccarat Games
dealers do not bother with these complex processes
and use a online blackjack games-style discard
tray. Sometimes a casino will simply slap a
miniOnline Baccarat Games felt on a online blackjack
games table. The gaming industry is clearly
unaware of the reasons for the elaborate shuffling
of a Online Baccarat Games shoe and treats it
simply as a ceremonial measure.
With three riffles of six or eight decks, there
is a slight correlation between the two-card
sequences of a pack of cards dealt before a
shuffle and after. This correlation is probably
not exploitable. Sometimes you may find shuffles
which are less thorough.
With the sloppiest of one-pass shuffles, it
is possible you may be able to predict the order
of entire hands as they repeat. In cases where
the proper procedure is not followed, the games
may be vulnerable to the method described next.
a player intentionally shows his cards to another
player with a live hand, tile entire hand is
considered exposed and must he shown to all
players immediately; if a player shows his cards
to another Player who does not have a live hand,
the exposed hand must he preserved and, upon
any request, shown to all players after the
hand is complete. This rule applies even if
the card exposure occurs after the hand is decided.
