      Q: “How do you drop cut?”

      A: Drop cutting is a technique that dealers use to deliver and count cheques. This technique involves separating 1-5 chips, from the bottom of the stack, without losing control, until you're ready to set the bottom portion of the stack down.

      First, grab a handful of cheques and hold them in the same way as you would if you had just finished sizing into a bet. By sliding your index finger from the bottom of the stack you can determine how many chips you want to cut from the stack.

      When you've determined the amount you want to cut from the stack, press in a little, so that you have a firm hold of the top portion of the stack. The chips should be pressed against your thumb and pinkie. The bottom amount is now ready to be dropped.
