How to Deal Blackjack
Pitching
How to Pitch - hand placement
           When you deal a handheld game you will be asked to pitch the cards. To start the procedure hold the deck in your dominate hand and look at the palm of your other hand.
How to Pitch - Finger Placement
           Put the top corner edge of the card parallel with the top part of your forefinger.

How to Pitch - Flicking the Card
           Using your middle finger, flick the card while letting go with your thumb.
           This should send the card flying. Your wrist should be firm and straight. Do not flick your wrist to deliver the cards. Your fingers should do all the work. When holding the deck and delivering the cards; hold it at the level of your stomach and slightly away from your body. Do not dip the deck when you are delivering the hit card. Do not hold the deck chest high and close to you body. You want to protect that deck at all times. When practicing aim, practice going from left to right since this will best emulate being on a live game. Also, use an object as your target, because at the table you will be pitching to the bets not the people.
Tucking the Hole Card
           Some casinos will want you to tuck your hole card while others will want you to do the simple maneuver. Every house is different so make sure you know your house rules. The procedure for tucking your hole card starts when you get to your hand. Remember to tuck the hole card underneath the top card as fast and low to the table as possible.

           Take the top card from the deck and using your thumb push it out so it is ready for delivery. Put the deck low to the table and close to your card but try not to cover the top card because the cameras always need to see them.

           Use your left hand to hold the up card in place and press down slightly on the left edge so that the right side is lifted and the hole card can be tucked efficiently. In a fast movement take the card from the top of the deck and slide it under the up card.

           Be careful because if your deck is too far away from the table or if your tuck is too wide then you will flash your card and show the players. This is bad dealing and you could get fired.

           The simple procedure for tucking the cards starts when you lay a card face down in front of you. Make sure the deck is low and the maneuver is done quick enough that no one can see the card. Then you’ll deliver the players their second card. When you get to your hand you will flip over one card so it is face up. Straighten the cards so you can’t see the hole card underneath.
