Hole Card Shoe, back side (black), by “nubs 1981”

Please enjoy this guest video by “nubs 1981”. In this video, nubs shows one of the most common ergonomic reasons for hole-card exposure in a blackjack shoe game, namely, the shoe is placed too close to the edge/lip of the discard tray. In order to avoid the tray, the dealer lifts the corner of the card over the edge, exposing the card to a spotter at third base.

I have a similar video taken from actual surveillance footage that I used to share in my seminars, but I am unable to share that video in a public forum.  What I am saying is that this happens in real life.

Thank you nubs 1981.
