First you get a stack of about 6 to 8 poker chips and place your hand over them with your thumb and pointer finger on one side and the rest of your fingers on the opposite side. Now lift half the stack and set it to the side and with one swift motion, use your thumb and pointer finger to bring the poker chip stack that was left behind up and on top of the other stack. Easy cheesy.

The Finger Flip

Another fun trick is the finger flip. This is an easy one that is nevertheless impressive and will make you look cool in front of your friends. It is just making one chip jump over a small stack of poker chips. For the best success start with 3 chips.

So how do you do this? Take a small stack of 3 chips in your hand. Place your forefinger and thumb in the center of the chip, with the rest of your fingers at the side. Using these fingers glide the back 2 chips downwards using your thumb to support them and prevent them from falling. When they slip down make the front chip jump to the back with your forefinger. Remember that this little ploy takes some practice, so perfect it before you show it off to your friends.

The nice thing about the above mentioned poker chip tricks are that they are easy and you can keep on repeating them. So go ahead have fun with your poker chips and enjoy being a cool poker player.
