What are chip tricks? Chip tricks are manipulations of poker chips. There is no magic involved, they are not performed to fool a spectator, they are indeed a way of passing time, relaxing, showing off, looking impressive or intimidating other players with self confidence. Players mix chips between their fingers as if they were cards, toss them in the air to take them up with specific movements, all as if they were young magicians or jugglers. Any particular movement has its specific name: the twirl, the thumb flip, the shuffle, the chip roll, the finger flip, the sweep, the butterfly, the bounce, the back spin, the knuckle roll and others a bit more complicated.
