The Muy Bueno Shuffle

An extremly deceptive false shuffle

First published in the underground magazine Penumbra #9, this tabled false shuffle of Bolivar J. Bueno's creates an uncanny illusion of the cards being mixed. After seeing Steve Forte execute a legitimate shuffle that ended with the cards being bowed and cascaded together onto the table, BJ sought to develop a false shuffle with a similar appearance. To this end, he has combined two false shuffle techniques and the result is called - The Muy Bueno Shuffle.

Please enjoy the Muy Bueno Shuffle, compliments of BJ Bueno.
