The Advantages 1. Marked cards allow the cheat to realize his ruling mantra: Know thy opponent’s hole cards. This is the number-one use of marked cards. It turns poker from a game of incomplete information into one of complete information, like chess. The cheat can study both sides of the board before making his move. This is the strongest advantage a player can have. 2. ” The marks allow a crooked dealer to identify the top card without having to literally peek at it (his other option). If he wants it for his own hand, he keeps it in place and deals the second card instead.

Size usually—but not always—determines the distance at which the cards can be read. Second-dealers need to see the marks close-up, in which case they are usually camouflaged in a small design element in the card’s back pattern, often near the left edge. This allows the cheat to push the top cards slightly to the right and “read” the cards below it as well. To read hole cards at a distance, however, the cheat will use a marking system like “juice,” where the marks are large but nonetheless invisible to the untrained eye (see the 14th Way, “Shade and Flash”).

This may seem like a glaringly obvious way to stack a hand. And it is. But it makes no difference if no one is paying attention. Prevention and Detection Pickup and discard stacks can be assembled very quickly, and with an air of nonchalance that belies the fact that order is being imposed on seeming chaos. Most of the time all the cheat is looking for is trips or a high pair, or sometimes just a single card. To spot this kind of cheat, watch how the board is cleared. Is it done in sections, rather than all at once?
