Learn the In-The-Hands Faro Shuffle Ebook


The ability to do perfect faro shuffles is a powerful weapon in the card magician’s arsenal of sleights. It is a genuine shuffle; the cards are truly being mixed. But it is also a controlled shuffle, meaning that the resulting order of the cards is not random. For this reason, it is an excellent adjunct to memorized deck work.

Over the years, I developed an effective method for teaching the faro shuffle, which I used in personal instruction. However, the method of teaching is so clear my presence isn’t necessary; I can teach the method long distance. In 2001, Lisa and I put out our first digital version of this training.

You’ll receive detailed information on conditioning the deck, the proper grips, applying pressure, the twist, and further hints and tips. All the videos and photographs have been updated and additional text has been added.  The combination of text, photos, and video provides you with the most effective learning experience possible. Pay attention, put in some practice time, and you will soon be doing perfect faro shuffles with confidence.

We have also updated the look and functionality of the ebook. You will receive the training in two formats: a PDF file and an EPUB file. This will allow you to view the material comfortably on your desktop or laptop computer or on an iPad or an Android tablet.

This product has been highly praised for its method of training. For the first time, you’ll have all the information you need to master this most useful of sleights.

If you want to master a perfect Faro Shuffle... the Faro Shuffle ebook by Michael Close is excellent. Highly Recommended.

Best treatise on the Faro

Michael's multimedia coverage of the Faro Shuffle should get everyone weaving seamlessly in no time! I have been attempting to reliably Faro for years, but have been limited to 70-80 % rate. With Michael's insightful tips I can confidently Faro >96.34% of the time. Do not hesitate to purchase this Faro instructional PDF/EPub if you want to incorporate a Faro into your repetoire.


Thanks for the kind words, Steve. I'm glad you found the material useful. - Michael Close

Finally got the hang of the Faro

I was struggling with the Faro Shuffle for quite a while (meaning: months+++) and occasionaly I got it perfect, but it wasn't enough to rely on this shuffle at all. After my first read-through, I realized two things that helped me immensely, one was the "knack" the Michael mentions, and the other one had to do with how I held the cards. Michael explained this so brilliantly, that I just needed to readjust my handling, and was able to do most of my faros perfect after an evening of practicing the new handling. It is not yet at performance level, but the practicing gets easiert everyday, some old habits still remain, which need to be unlearned. (which is also an important point: learning the Faro badly from the start, like I did, is something you have to unlearn, I honestly wish, I would have come across this ressource earlier). I am really glad about the purchase, like everything from Mike, he explains it really in depth, and I cannot think of any other resource to recommend with regards to learning the Faro.


Hi Rene: Thanks for the kind words. I'm happy you found the faro ebook to be helpful. Good luck "unlearning" your old habits; I'm sure ingraining the new handling into your muscle memory will happen quickly. - Michael
