How To Shuffle Cards One Handed

December 28, 2011 — 8 Comments

No idea where these are from.

I don’t think I’ve ever won a game of poker in my life.

Go Fish?  That’s a whole different story.

And Speed.  Have you ever played Speed?  I remember playing that with my siblings when I was younger.  Thinking about it now, though, I’m not sure how I did it with only one hand!

Whatever the game happened to be, there would always be a time when it was my turn to shuffle.  So, I just did it.  Sure, it’s not the prettiest method or perhaps the most effective, but it gets the job done.

What’s funny to me is that there are actually machines that shuffle cards for you, but I’ve never owned one.  I’ve actually never even used one.

And while a machine might be slicker and more effective, I don’t think I’ll ever get one.  It’s just not the same.  (You can get one here, though)

Check out my method below and make sure to leave a comment!  Especially if you have ideas for a sign-off!

(You can also get a one-handed card holder here)

  1. Thanks! Micah uses the “mash ’em up” method…or just hands the cards to mom or dad to shuffle for him. 🙂

    No creative idea for a tag line, but we’ll keep thinking.

  2. Hey I went on a Carnival cruise! Did you steal my deck of cards? RUDE!

  3. This is great! I have a 3 year old LBE and it is so cool to see a smart handsome guy with a great sense of humor. I hope my son will be the same way when he gets older!
    One is fun! 😉

  4. That was awesome.. I too taught myself to shuffle cards. Although I have two hands just no fingers on the left hand.. never thought about doing videos to show people how we do things. Keep the videos coming..

  5. I’ve been wondering how to teach my son to shuffle cards. Thanks for the demo video!!
