Poker Chip Slinky:
Do you remember a slinky and how it goes from one step down to the next, down again and to the next? Well, sort of how this trick will work. The chip goes from one finger to the next. Then over and back up traveling between the fingers very swiftly. It’s like how Captain Jack Sparrow plays with the medallions in the movie
Pirates of the Caribbean.
To begin you start in between your thumb and your index finger. So that when the chip goes over to the finger it hits the top of your finger right in between your one knuckle and your other knuckle. For once balance your chip on your finger in the middle of your knuckles. This will give you an idea about how the first step works. Once you balance it on your finger take an idea on how you’ll get there by sliding it from between your thumb and middle finger.
Once it is on your index finger, use your mid finger to slide it up on the adjacent finger.
So once again…
Start with your thumb and your index finger. Then you kind of let go of the chip and the chip will fall. Your finger must be sufficiently away from another finger so that when you touch it you will be able to generate enough friction to flick the chip over and then again and then again. Now the last bit is a little tricky.
It could be because a lot many people don’t have a lot of strength in their tiny finger. But because you are just squeezing the two, you do not need a lot of strength. Finally, your thumb comes from the underneath and catches the chip and you are ready for another round.
The Next trick in line is the chip roll. Keep reading to stay cool!
