Euchre Card Skills - One handed dealing and cutting in euchre

Since card handling is an important skill in euchre, we here at the Euchre Universe constantly search for new ways to manipulate the pasteboards. While stumbling around the web (literally) I came accross this nifty description and video of how to cut a deck one handed.

And if you want to see a video of it in action, check out this one over at The second version in this video is known as the Charlier Cut and it's the one I most often use.

While you're at it, you might want to learn to just shuffle a deck of cards one handed. This will take a bit more practice than the cuts. Here is a video version that is pretty good.

But all of these card handling skills will be useful for intimidating your opponents at the euchre table. And since euchre is a game with a significant amount of luck, any edge you can get over your opponent is worthwhile.
