Pando Posted June 12, 2015 Report Share Posted June 12, 2015 Hi EllisI have a question about cutting the deck, and the effect that the cut willhave on the shoe.I am very surprised that nobody has talked about this before.We often see the shoe change abruptly during the shoe and I wonder howmuch this is related to (or caused by) the deck being cut.So I did an experiment yesterday. I sat at the table to the right of the dealerand had the option to cut the deck. I did so, almost smack bang in the middle of thecards. I went further back in the shoe about 15 cards which is the common numberof cards the dealer cuts from the front of the shoe.So in theory, the first half of the deck as they were dealt should be untouched and should be as they came from the factory (Angel pre-shuffled cards).As the shoe played out the character of the shoe changed half way through, just whereI made the cut.So my question really is, what effect does cutting the deck make. Does one card eitherway make a difference to the subsequent hands. I think these are vital issues.I hope you can give some insight into thisThanks in advancebest regardsPando Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
