- The Trick With No Name
Two stacks of at least 3 chips (but mostly 5, up to 10 or more) are pushed together, so that the two stacks will become one like a zipper.
With one hand, the middle chip in a stack of three is pushed out, turned, and put back in between the other two.
The objective of this trick is to flip the front chip in a stack to the back of the stack.
Same as the “The Thumb Flip”
The butterfly is a technique in which 4 chips are used. With one hand, a stack of four chips can be divided evenly between the five fingers, clamping the sides of each chip in between. They are basically ‘spread out’.
One of the more difficult techniques, in the knuckle roll a chip is clamped between the thumb and index, and from there moved to the other side of the hand, clamping it three times between the fingers. The chip does not actually roll, but is flipped over each time.
