Article move[edit]

Moved from Cut (playing cards) to Cut (cards) because many card games do not use standard playing cards, but do require cutting. The term cut also applies to non-game card activities such as tarot-reading. --Netoholic 14:48, 19 Jul 2004 (UTC)

Who cuts?[edit]

Who is supposed to cut? I've heard left of dealer and right of dealer. I'm thinking right should make more sense if you are the dealer and you are dealing clockwise starting from your left. 19:57, 3 January 2006 (UTC)

Number of cards[edit]

There are different ways to cut cards and have seen them cut "heavy" by cutting more than half of the deck and "light" by cutting a few cards off the top. I have seen people simply knock on the deck as if to say "I'll have you deal as is". I believe there is a symbolism to such actions and such meaning can only be inferred...such as a "wimpy" cut or a "macho" cut or a "cocky" cut... all these as attempts to psychologically affect the games outcome and appear in control. When each move counts and the stakes are high enough, what would each move symbolize.. I wonder. Comments welcome —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 02:40, 11 August 2010 (UTC)

Some advocate that a cut must take at least 10 cards off the top and leave at least 10 cards on the table, i.e. when doing a table cut. Newwhist (talk) 16:02, 3 November 2016 (UTC)
