In this episode of the PokePopCast, we return to our review of Pokemon’s Penalty Guidelines. Aside from the review of section 6, we go over how a judge should approach issuing penalties and dealing with players.
This is a short episode of the PopCast where we just look at the details of how to do a riffle Shuffle without damaging or bending your cards, or your opponent’s cards.
It’s a hot topic and if not done properly, can damage cards.
So a lot of players don’t want to have their cards riffle shuffled.
But that should only be a concern if it is done badly.
Here, we learn how to do it right, and not damage the cards.
It is the best, most efficient method of shuffling, so let’s learn how to do it correctly!
Well, this is an extra special episode of the PokePopCast!
We have an hour long interview with Vince Krekeler, Meganium45 on the Gym.
Vince is a Stage 2 Professor and runs a number of Regionals in the US, including the upcoming St. Louis Regionals in February 2018.
Among the features of that Regionals will be the return to the US of the Professor Seminar AND the Professor Cup!!!!!
If you are a Professor, reserve your spot at the Seminar and if you are Stage 1 or higher, sign up for the Professor Cup so that I can beat you.
The PokePopCast is starting a series going over the Penalty Guidelines in detail. In Part 1, we review sections 1 through 5. This also discusses how judges should approach handling issues with players, keeping in mind the Spirit of the Game and the goals of “Fun, Fair, and Fast”.
