Example text

The left hand, holding the inverted deck, is apparently there to prevent exposing the cards to the player on the left. At this moment, the card is peeked (Fig. 3). A peek can also be made with the deck perpendicular to the table and close to the body. In that case, the move needs more cover. Some sharpers keep a drink or a stack of chips to their left for just this purpose. As the right hand moves across the body to pick up the drink, the left hand “gets out of the way” Fig. 3 by moving toward the chest, The Top Card Peek 27 and the peek is made by looking straight down.

All that’s required is a corrupt house dealer and one or more associates. In this case, the dealer memorizes one or more of the face-up sequences in front of him, rather than the discards. This is relatively easy to do, as the dealer is supposed to study the exposed cards to verify the winner. In studying them, he memorizes a string and later maneuvers them to the top of the deck. He then quarterbacks the next hand by signaling all the pertinent information to his allies. The signals are minimal: check, bet, raise, fold.

Marking Cards During Play A deck that starts out honest may not end up that way. There are many, many systems for marking cards on the fly, involving nicks, pricks, crimps, waves, and daub. Any type of card can be marked with the appropriate system: casino cards, logo cards, airline cards, Bees, Bicycles, paper, or plastic. This topic is fully explored in later entries. Selective Use Just because the cards are marked doesn’t mean the cheat will use his advantage on every hand. Too much staring at the cards is suspicious.
