Poker is a card game that involves skill, strategy and luck. But it can also be a game of manipulation and deception. Over the years, cheating techniques have been developed by players to gain an unfair edge over their opponents. One of the techniques involves using glasses with a view through cards. Despite the fact that these glasses are illegal, some players continue to use them.
Unlike regular sunglasses, poker cheating glasses are coated with special ink to allow them to read invisible marks on the back of the card. They look like normal sunglasses, but they have the ability of enlarging luminous ink markings so that they can easily be read. They are used in magic shows as well as poker games.
Another method of cheating at poker is using a cold deck, which is a pre-stacked deck of cards that have not been thoroughly shuffled. This method can be used in a variety of ways, including sleight-of-hand. A card sharp may riffle-shuffle the deck, then cut it or even use a sequence of cuts.
Besides these, there are other poker cheating glasses that can be used to make it easier for players to read marked cards. These lenses are essentially modified sunglasses that filter out the green light and allow them to see markings on the cards that would otherwise be hidden to the naked eye. These lenses are used by many poker players in games such as Texas Hold’em and Omaha. They can also be used for other card games like low ball, Baccarat, and Baccarat.
