“When dealing with cyclical stacks you can cut the cards as many times as you want but you can’t shuffle. With that being said many times it’s recommended to use a Charlie shuffle which actually only cuts the cards. I was thinking why not use the Hindu shuffle which also seems to only cut the cards? Or an overhand shuffle as long as you don’t peel off individual cards but in clamps. This means you can use the Hindu and the overhand shuffle instead of false shuffling and still retain the cyclical stack.”
