Shuffle tracking tutorial and guide

 

Shuffle-tracking is a mathematics-based approach, just like card counting.

Casino shuffle tracking is one of the techniques that are being used by blackjack players. It is an offshoot of card counting, but it is more difficult to learn.

 

To understand shuffle tracking you need to understand card counting first.

 

/Shuffle tracking is only one of the advantage gambling methods. There are many more. Check out the other advantage gambling methods and learn to make money gambling like the professional gamblers./

 

 

Shuffle tracking

 

Summary:

 

 

 

Basics of shuffle tracking

 

Shuffle tracking is about tracking certain cards, or sequences of cards through a series of shuffles. Shuffle tracking is typically done in blackjack, but it is possible to use it playing other card games (e.g.: baccarat, poker) as well.

Shuffle tracking is feared by casinos. While casinos have become very adept at identifying card counting, shuffle tracking is much harder to spot.

The technique involves tracking clumps of tens and face cards and monitoring them in the next round of shuffles. The prominence of cards with a value of ten increases the possibility of the dealer getting busted, and thus gives the player advantage. Advantage gamblers will then increase their bets, once the bunch of tens emerges from the shoe.

However, continuous card shuffling machines (pictured below) have become very widespread.

On the picture is a CMS machine, that makes it impossible for players to perform shuffle tracking. On this page you can read about shuffle tracking in poker, blackjack, baccarat. Under the picture is a shuffle tracking tutorial and there are two video tutorials near the bottom of the page to help you learn shuffle tracking.

CSM (continuous shuffling machine) – the arch enemy of shuffle tracking

CSM machines make card counting and shuffle tracking impossible (on the picture to the left).

 

Many shuffle tracking strategies exist. Generally, the player, or a team member keeps track of the count (high cards vs. low cards) of one or more subsections of the cards as they are played.

The selected sections may or may not be predetermined by observing and mapping the shuffle. These sections are referred to as “tracking zones”.

The player may attempt to follow slugs of cards through the shuffle, or have a good idea of the final location by previously analysing the shuffle. After the shuffle, play zones exist which contain most of the cards in the tracking zone as well as other cards. The player can then cut zones with high cards into play, or with low cards out of play, thus changing the normal composition of the shoe. Betting can then be altered to reflect the altered composition.

 

 

Advantages and disadvantages of shuffle tracking

Dealers' hands move fast, shuffle tracking is not an easy money scheme.

Shuffle tracking is the practice of keeping track of cards as they are being shuffled.

Advantages of shuffle tracking:

  • hard to detect by casinos,
  • +0.225-0.9% player advantage.

 

Disadvantages of shuffle tracking:

  • does not always work,
  • even harder to learn than card counting,
  • knowing card counting is a prerequisite.

Shuffle tracking tutorial

 

The premise of shuffle-tracking is that shuffles are not random,  the location of cards after the shuffle is to some degree predictable. Counting is necessary to have some idea of the favourability of different regions of the played cards, so that these regions may be tracked through the shuffle.

A common shuffle used by casinos is the “zone shuffle”. Here, the cards are broken into piles, and then the shuffling is only performed between the piles.

Thus, even with the uncertainty in pick sizes and riffs, a particular card has a zero percent probability of being in certain portions of the shuffled pile, and a high probability of being in one or two particular portions of the shuffled pile.

Casinos do not use more thorough shuffles, because more thorough shuffles take more time and dealers are instructed to be fast.

Shuffle-trackers actively exploit the inherent non-randomness in casino shuffles. The technique, sometimes called ‘zone tracking’, involves keeping track of the count in different portions of the discarded cards.

 

In all the examples, you can consider the count, according to the Hi-Lo technique to be:

  • 2,3,4,5,6 = +1
  • 7,8,9 = 0
  • 10, A = -1

 

However, tracking works with just about any card counting system.

Almost all counting systems assign low/negative values to high cards (such as 10’s are valued as -1) and high/positive values to low cards (such as 6’s are valued as +1).

It is a fact that high cards favour a player and low cards favour the dealer. Hence, removing a high card from the shoe reduces the running count and removing a low card from the shoe increases the running count.

The higher the running count, the more favorable (or less unfavorable) the game is for the player. True count is running count divided by the number of unplayed decks, and for the high-low system, each unit of true count is a +0.5% advantage.

As an example of a simple tracking method, if the end-of-shoe count is -10, then you know that the count of the unplayed cards is +10.

If the unplayed cards all get shuffled into the top half of the shuffled pile, where should you cut the cards?

The answer is, right in the middle.

The reason is, that the unplayed cards had a count of +10, that means there were 10 more low cards than high cards, and you don’t want to play those low cards which are now in the top of the pile, so you cut in the middle to put at least some of them out of play during the next shoe.

You might also want to pat yourself on the back and raise your bet during the first half of the shoe, even though the count will probably start to go negative.

The reason is, that on average, the first half of the shoe should now have a count of -10. This means there are ten more high cards than low cards. An important thing to remember during shuffle-tracking is that high count regions are bad, and low count regions are good. This can be counter-intuitive.

 

Shuffle-Tracking Strategies

 

Ace sequencing method

Ace sequencing is about attempting to determine when an ace is about to be dealt. If a player knows that he will be dealt an ace as his first card, he gains a 50.43% advantage, which is really significant.

This is because a player has about a 31% (depending on number of decks) chance of getting a Blackjack, or a good chance of making a strong hand if he is not dealt a Blackjack.

First the player needs know what segments of the discards are likely to appear relatively intact after a shuffle.
Then, the player observes aces as they are placed into the discard tray within a segment.
Then, the player remembers the two or three cards placed on top of the ace in the tray.

These are called key cards.

After the shuffle, the player looks for the key cards.
The ace is likely to follow these cards and the player may be able to raise his bet in anticipation of receiving the ace.

 

Zone tracking method

The previous section gave a trivial example of shuffle-tracking, where you just use the running count at the end of the shoe. Tracking more regions can give you more detailed information about the next shoe.

Suppose it is a four deck game, with three decks actually dealt. You record the running count for the first deck and call it A, the second B, and the third C (the recorded running count is for each deck individually, so you must either take differences in the new and previous running counts).

The unplayed deck is D, and it is assigned the opposite of the final running count.

 

Suppose that shuffle starts by putting the unplayed cards on top of the played cards. Then the pile looks like this:

  • D
  • C
  • B
  • A

And now if the pile is cut in two it looks like this:

  • B D
  • A C

And if the top halves are shuffled together, and then the bottom halves are shuffled together and placed on top, you wind up with this “profile”:

  • A+C
  • B+D

The profile shows how the tracking units are combined. The plus sign indicates that the estimated count in each two deck region is simply the sum of two tracking units.

So if A=-4, B=+2, C=+1, D=+1, then the counts in each half of the shuffled shoe are estimated as follows:

  • -3
  • +3

Here, you would cut as close to the bottom, trying to keep the -3 in front of the end-of-play card. You would bet more aggressively in the -3 region and more conservatively elsewhere.

Shuffle tracking video tutorial – make money playing blackjack in casinos

 

The outcome of any shuffle tracking scheme is largely dependent on the individual’ abilities of the player, as well as his knowledge and analysis of the shuffling style of the dealer he’ll be playing against. Therefore, no uniform shuffle tracking exists – it has to be tailored to the situation each and every time.

The videos below are not exactly tutorials, they only explain and showcase how powerful shuffle tracking can be in practice – if done correctly.

 

An explanation of the shuffle tracking technique known as “zone tracking”

 

 

A video showcasing the power of ace sequencing in Black Jack

 

If you read the tutorial and watched the video tutorials you only need to practice to master shuffle tracking and make money playing blackjack in casinos.

 

Places to practice shuffle tracking

 

If you are new to shuffle tracking, or you are just starting to get the hang of it, you need to practice in an environment that has less distractions than a brick & mortar casino.

The best place to practice shuffle tracking is a so called “live casino” (online casino with live dealers, see below).

A live dealer casino is the perfect place to practice, because you can have a tutorial open while you play.

If you are not an experienced advantage gambler, your behavior would draw suspicion from the dealer in a casino, but in a live dealer online casino nobody will notice.

 

Share your success, if you made any money in a casino with the method you learnt here, please drop a comment, I would love to hear about it.

Important: 

This is a picture of a card shuffling machine. These machines make card counting impossible, if you see them don2t try the card counting methods discussed to the right of the picture.

Continuous Shuffling Machines (CSM)

  • CSM (Continuous Shuffling Machines, to the left) make shuffle tracking impossible (live casinos have CSM sometimes too, don1t forget to check, I haven seen it in the casinos on the page, but if they have it, please leave a comment).
  • Remember, shuffle tracking is not illegal but you can get banned from a casino (or even from online casino, although it’s exceedingly rare).
  • The higher the count, the more you should bet, but keep in mind that if you range your bets too much, you might draw some heat from the casino. Subtlety is important.
  • The theory of shuffle tracking has not been substantiated as card counting has, so even if there are more or less working methods out there, there is no standard technique that would yield the same results every time. The outcome of shuffle tracking schemes depend largely on the abilities of the player and the extent to which he is familiar with the shuffling style of the dealer he’s playing against.

 

/Card counting is only one of the advantage gambling methods. There are many more. Check out the other advantage gambling methods and learn to make money gambling like the professional gamblers./

Thank you for visiting:
This is a selfie of the author and owner of Simon's Casino Gambling Blog, me, Simon András Péter, a.k.a. by the internet pseudonym SimonTheSorcerer, owner of Simon's Online Marketing Kft. This is the homepage of my online casino gambling blog, you can see what's on the website, the links to all the different sections of the website.

That's me, Simon, thank you for visiting.

Don't worry, this is not an ad! ;) Just wanted to make sure to tell you that I'm glad you visited this gambling blog. I'm Simon, the only author and the man behind this blog (if you are interested, my unusual life story can be found on the homepage, under the "About me" dropdown section).
I'm an independent gambling blogger since 2012. In this sector dominated by huge media companies, casino operators and online marketing networks, who can easily spend $ millions on their online gambling blogs, it's not easy for an independent nobody like me to survive. It took me about 6 years, working my ass off, to even have a chance to be noticed by visitors like you. I'm lucky enough that for a few years now, I make enough money to be able to do this full time (before that, I had part-time jobs, ghost writing gigs, online marketing this and that).
Now I can finally do this full time, thanks to visitors like you! And it means a lot! If you are interested, please bookmark this site (no social media profiles, I no longer have any, but please feel free to share anything on any social media networks, if you still use them). I don't have any money to advertise, and if you have a personal blog, any social media profile, please mention my gambling blog and link back to it. This the only way for a small website like this to grow. Thank you!

Logo of Kiva.org. You can read about my non-profit activity right next to the picture.
Charity: As a way to help others, to give back, I sometimes donate to Kiva. If you click on the ads on the website, I make some money. And in a good month, if I make more than my expenses, I donate to people and projects on Kiva.
Kiva helps young entrepreneurs in developing countries, which is an issue close to my heart for obvious reasons. If you have the means, please sign up with the revolutionary non-profit company Kiva.org and help people lift themselves out of poverty, through hard-work, and an initial investment (non-profit loan). These non-profit loans encourage entrepreneurship and hard work instead of creating a dependent class that is afraid to get a job, or start a business (because if they did, they would no longer get support and free money, disincentivezing hard work and entrepreneurship). This is the right way to fight poverty in developing countries (or anywhere else really), and if this is something you are interested in, and if you would like to know more, or to help out, please check out Kiva.org here. Thank you!
