Poker is a card game that involves skill, strategy and luck. It can also be a deceptive and manipulative game. Over the years, players have developed various methods of cheating to gain an unfair advantage over their opponents. One of these techniques involves using glasses that can see through cards. Despite the fact that these glasses are illegal, some players continue to use them.
Poker cheating sunglasses are coated with special ink that allows them to see invisible marks on the card’s back. They look like ordinary sunglasses but have the ability to amplify luminous ink marks so that they can be read easily. 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 to cheat in many ways, including using sleight of hand. A card sharp will either riffle shuffle the deck and then cut it, or they may even use a cutting sequence.
Other poker cheating glasses can also be used to help players 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 popular among poker players and can be used in a wide range of card games, including Texas Hold’em, Omaha, Baccarat and low ball.
