The focus of the video was counting cards. The reference to the movie The Hangover and 21 were both emphasizing that. They mention a false shuffle once (I had to rewatch it because I had overlooked it). Obviously they weren't THAT good, because they were caught.
You might want to work on your tone. This is hardly worth getting upset over.
In all due respect ArchAngel, the focus of the video was not about counting cards. Card counters are well known. This was about being able to manipulate the cards "out of sight". i.e. false shuffle. You only SHUFFLE ONE TIME PER DEAL. So, how many times they have to mentioned that the players were false shuffling and getting passing all scrutiny?
Also, my dear friend, card counting and false shuffling are two different animals. False shuffling requires skill, the more the spotlight, the more skill. I think everyone would agree that in a casino operation, all dealers are under the tightest microscope going.
You said you don't see the relation to magic??????
Well, my dear uninformed friend. False shuffling is sleight of hand. To do something in plain view that is not what it seems. Seems to me that Magic shares that same trait.
Magic uses cards a lot, and as I said, false shuffling too.
Then after you couldn't figure out the connection, you say they weren't that good because they got caught!! Spare me..
They didn't get caught because their sleight of hand was detected, they got caught because they were winning too much, and was put under a tighter microscope, and finally they were caught.
I apologized if my tone offended you. However, the truth of mattters is always hard to accept.
Also, try to understand what you read, hear and see a little more.
