From 2004, Rudy Hunter released this teach-in of a single full deck false riffle shuffle, which he dubbed "The Hunter Shuffle". It is an excellent false shuffle, and Hunter teaches it very well -- he pays attention to important details and makes sure that you will understand exactly how this false shuffle is executed.
I recommend this DVD. I agree as the DVD cover exclaims that this is "the best false shuffle ever."
But I also want to point out that the Hunter Shuffle is actually the Shank Shuffle, which Ed Marlo detailed in his book of the same name, which Jon Racherbaumer edited and published way back in 1972. The Shank Shuffle was invented by Frank Shank, and if you read pages 8-11 of the Marlo book, you will get the exact same handling that is taught by Hunter on the DVD.
However given that Marlo's book is now very difficult to find, and also because Hunter does such a good job explaining and teaching the shuffle, I think the DVD is a good buy for anyone who wants to learn an excellent false shuffle. (even if you happen to own the Marlo book).
I see this one selling elsewhere online for up to $20, which is too much (in my opinion) for a single shuffle teach in. Best Price I found was $9, so you can get it here for less :-)
New and sealed. (Photos show open product from my own DVD library -- you will receive a shrinkwrapped DVD.
