False Riffle Shuffle


The false riffle shuffle is extremely easy to do, and in its simplest form, it keeps the top card at the top.

There is a more complicated false riffle shuffle which maintains the order of all the cards, but let's keep things simple for now!


How To Do It

Perform a standard riffle shuffle, with the spectators card on top.

Time the cards as they fall down, so the last card to fall in the top card of the deck.

After some practice, you should be able to perform this without having to slow down/speed up. It should look totally natural.
