Poker Card Manipulation App

Poker Card Manipulation App is a free-to-use app that helps users surprise their friends with a variety of card tricks and tutorials. The app includes step-by-step instructions and detailed video demonstrations of a number of different tricks for all skill levels. It also allows users to practice their skills with a virtual deck of cards and coin before trying them out in front of an audience.

A custom Android app powers the hardware, which consists of two stacked circuit boards and a hidden camera. The device can read black dots on a card from a few inches away and determine its suit and value. It can then tell which player has the best hand. The device can also record video of players and analyze the cards they are holding.

The device can even predict who is winning in Blackjack. It can do so by counting the number of high cards (such as tens, jacks, and queens) that are left in the unplayed deck. Card counting requires a lot of practice and takes years to master.

Another way that professional cheats are able to get an edge is by peeking at cards during shuffling. With a little stealth, a dealer can peek at a few key cards while he or she is gathering the cards together after a hand has finished and bunching them up to square them for shuffling.

One of the most devious ways that cheaters can tip off other players is with a customized smartphone that can remotely read cards. A Google anti-abuse researcher tracked down a device that looked just like a regular phone but had a secret built-in card reader.
