I think it is just the opposite of that. Shuffling more often lowers the house edge. Continuous Shuffling machines are better for the basic strategy player.



Incorrect as to preferential shuffling. If the casino shuffles when the count goes positive more quickly but letís negative shoes run their course, the player is worse off.
The race is not always to the swift, nor the battle to the strong; but that is the way to bet.

I agree and continuous shufflers are better for the majority of players.

Only if you assume the same number of hands per hour. Iíd think the time between shoes would offset the couple hundredths of a percent of house edge. Also if weíre shuffling more often without continuous shuffler machine then youíve got the cut card effect.
