Guest CarlosM Posted November 4, 2007 Report Share Posted November 4, 2007 To prove that casino shuffles do not randomize the cards is easy. Anyone can do this at home. Use whatever number of decks they use at your casino, 1, 2, 4, 5, 6 or 8. For now, forget washing the cards. Duplicate the the excact shuffle they use, pick size, intertwine. Now, before doing all this, put all the 10's, J's, Q's, and K's all together. Or if you want, you can put all those ten value cards with all the 9's together. Try just the ten value cards first. I know, the casinos do not do this before they shuffle. It's just an experiment to prove casino shuffles do not randomize the cards. Say they use 8 decks at your casino. Put all the ten value cards (128 cards of ten values) on top of the rest of the cards of A's, 2's, 3's, 4's, 5's, 6's, 7's, 8's, and 9's. So, you have one pile of 8 decks. It can be 6, 4, decks or whatever they use at your casino. The top portion of the pile is all the Ten value cards which are on top of the rest of the cards. Before you perform your casino shuffle, take a magic marker and mark a straight diaganal line from top left to bottom right edges of the cards. Now perform your casino shuffle. After this shuffle, and you have the cards back in one pile again, look at your diaganal line. You'll see that line is not totally broken up. Segments will still be intact. You will either have that line slightly broken, still seeing an almost perfect diaganal line or the line broke up into sections but, will still have segments of it still intact. If their shuffle truly did randomize the cards, that line would be totally or very close to it, all broken up with no or lillte sections of the tens intact!Ellis, Keith, Mad Dog, Char.
