Whether you are playing poker online or playing in the casino for a live match, you may have your own particular chip tricks. These tricks you can simply use as a trump card to distract your opponent at the poker table. Basically, using poker chip tricks to distract the opponents has proven successful to numerous online poker players.
Let’s take a look on a few poker chip tricks which you can practice easily while you are playing poker tournaments.
This trick is where you take 2 stacks of chips. And use your fingers to splice them together into 1 big stack. You should start off doing 6-8 chips, so have stacks of 3-4 chips that are touching each other. You thumb goes onto the left lower side of the left stack. Your index finger should go in between the 2 stacks and touch the chips where the chips meet. Your middle and ring fingers go on the right side of the right stack of chips.
Most people don’t use the pinky. To do the trick, you push the 2 stacks together slightly while lifting up with your index finger and pulling both stacks up at the same time. Use 2 different colours of chips so that you can easily see how your results are. It helps when the surface is slightly soft because initially getting the chips off the ground is the hardest part. Doing it on an online poker India table is perfect as opposed to a hard table.

First you get a stack of about 8 chips. Two different colours look better and are highly recommended. Then you pick up half the stacks, which are 4. As you pick up the fourth chip grab the chip under it (5th chip) and slide it a little less than half way over the stack. Then as you bring the other stack of 4 chips to the right slam down on the poker chip which is hanging off of the stack still on the table. The chip will flip onto the 4 chip stack which you just slammed down. This will take a while to practice in order to develop how hard you should hit it. It also depends on how many chips you have, if you are using more than 8 total poker chips.
This trick is where you bounce a chip off the felt and onto your stack. This is less about technique and more about practice. It is best to just keep practicing dropping a chip and letting it fall and getting a feel for the amount and direction of the bouncing. The key is the angle at which it hits the table. The angle has to be very small and any subtle in accuracy in estimation will result in failure.
An alternate easy chip trick is the poker chip snap. This chip trick is one of the most straightforward tricks to master in light of the fact that it a simple trick to do and can divert your opponents focus. That being said, one should to a certain extent make the chip snap loud to distract your opponents but don’t make it a habit as other players could get irritated.
To learn this trick simply place two chips on the palm of your hands and place your thumb above the uppermost chip. Use your thumb to slide the topmost chip onto your fingers so the chips are lying next to each other. Now remove your thumb and close your hand thus returning the chip to its original position. By doing this fast and with pressure applied you will get the loud snap.
Happy playing online poker!
