7 Ways To Cheat At Poker

Apr 24, 2008
CHeating at poker is as old as the game. There are a number of methods to cheat at poker from very simple to very complex ways. There isn't much harm in knowing a few ways to cheat at the game, even if it is only to recognise when someone is cheating you.

1.How A Child Does It There's not a whole lot of skill required to the old peeking routine. Cause a diversion of sorts and when the other players are distracted sneak a look at their cards. It's hard to prove that someone is intentionally looking at your cards. Just don't do it too often!

2.How the Mean Players Do It A miser never likes to lose their money or part with it. A miser will try and avoid paying house feels and may also 'palm' his chips when he is seemingly placing a bet. Don't get caught though or you may get banned for life!

3.How Would A Magician Do It? A magician can make cards appear and disappea at will through sleight of hand etc. It would not be hard for a magician to swap a bad hand for a better one that he had hidden elsewhere.

4.How the Unscrupulous Dealers Do It Unscrupulous dealers save their favorite cards (culling) and place those cars on the bottom of te deck, or second from bottom. They sometimes use their index finger to peak at cards before they deal them. Its amusing to see how closely players watch a 'self appointed' dealer!

5.How Manipulative Dealers Do It There are unscruplous dealers and there are downright crooked dealers. Any good cheat knows that they cannot win every hand. However ensuring another player gets a good hand will ensure that the pot continues to boil!

6.How the Card Makers Do It Bringing your own deck of cards to play with is a low blow, since you can use your own cold deck, a set of prearranged cards (such as every fourth card dealt will form a winning hand) or even specially marked cards that tell you the value of the card from the back. (Common markings include a scratch, a circle or a sun discoloration)

7.How the Confederates Do It Collusion is one of the best ways to cheat at poker, since everyone suspects a single cheat, but not many will jump to conclusions that two people are in on the deal. Collusion techniques might include forming failing to bet or raise each other, raising and re-raising each other to trap other players and in strategic signaling.
