Example text

But how do you get from here to there? The cheat has mapped out all his moves like a chess player and starts clearing the board as soon as the winner is declared. The right hand picks up the A-7-10-10 and drops them facedown onto the previous discards so that the ace is on top. The left hand gathers the remaining three cards from the same hand and adds them to the heap (which now reads x-x-x-A). The J-Q are slid under the 9-A, and all four are dropped facedown onto the pile (which now reads from the top down, x-x-x-A, x-x-x-A).

This phase of the cheating operation—locating and isolating cards to be used in the upcoming deal—is known as culling. It’s the hunting-gathering stage of crooked dealing. To be sure, the cheat rarely culls a royal straight flush; it’s way too obvious and the stuff of poker movies. Instead, he seeks out strong pairs, threes of a kind, even straights and flushes, finding them among the discards, or lying openly on the table. The cards are assembled on the offbeat; between hands or during actions peripheral to the game.

Figure 4 shows the final position as the card is glimpsed. It takes a bit of a knack to lever the card into position using only one hand. In one method, the top card is edged slightly to the right by the left thumb and immediately pushed back and upward by the pinkie—causing the inner left corner to pop up. Or, the left thumb can push diagonally inward from the upper left corner, causing the lower left corner to pop up. The heel of the hand then Fig. 4 enters the gap, holding it open as the peek is made.
