In poker, the game is mixed between shots.

The game mix methods are numerous. In order to guarantee a sufficient mix, the dealer will combine several totally different ones. It begins with the “salad”, performed by spreading the cards face down. Then he beats the package to the American, in “riffle-shuffle”. The package is cut in half, and the two halves are stripped, the cards being entangled by falling by gravity. Finally, the dealer finishes by cutting the game several times in a row.

Before distributing the cards, the dealer places a “cut card”, usually a plastic object, under the package so that no card is visible.

In some circles or casinos, a mixer is used. While a shot is being played, he mixes a second packet. Mixers of good quality are expensive but silent and fast.
