So today I made some major improvements in my card handling skill. I was watching "Fast Company' (thanks again Ex for the recommendation!) and Luke Jermay's "Strip out triple cut" and I had my Bee's out and I was just working on some basic controls and everything clicked! I tried it out on my mom to see what she thought. I combined Jermay's strip out triple cut with a simple gamblers cut, and a forced shuffle to retain the card I wanted. My mom is extremely observant and incredibly smart so whenever I get something by her I know that it is crowd ready. I completely baffled her! she had no clue how I had done that. I even was able to do a pretty good second deal. Just wanted to let you guys know. Ever since I saw Shade I've been dying to learn how to it all and I FINALLY feel like I'm on my way!

I'm glad you liked the video. One point of interest, a Card Shark is a person that's just good at card games, while the term for someone that cheats is Card Sharp. Very few people will make that distinction, but the guys here tend to get a little more angry than they should when they know something that you don't.

oh thanks! I didn't even realize I typed a "K" instead of a "P" I'll go edit it (this is what I get when I try to draw and type at the same time lol)
