Card Game Cheating

Card Game Cheating involves using a variety of tactics to gain an advantage during a card game. Some methods are as low-tech as a quick glance or leaning over the table to peek, while others require a bit more skill and ingenuity. The basic principle is to observe the behavior of the players while they play and look for opportunities to cheat. The most common methods involve peeking at cards, but some advanced cheaters have been known to use a shiner, which is basically a mirror that allows them to peek into other players’ hands.

Another method of cheating is to manipulate the deck. This can be done in a number of ways including culling, palming, and mucking. A third way of cheating is to deal second deals. This is where a player will move a card from the top of the deck to their own hand by manipulating the cards with their fingers as they are dealt.

A final type of cheating is through marking. This can be done in a number ways such as secretly scratching, bending or changing the design on a card to tell its value. Some more sophisticated cheaters have even resorted to marking the cards with invisible ink and other hi-tech techniques that would look more at home in a James Bond movie. Players who suspect a player of lying during their turn can call out “cheat” or something similar. The player who was lied about must then reveal all of their cards in their hand and show them to everyone else.
