Front to Back
You can do this by holding 3 to 5 chips sideways on your hand, then move the front chip to the back. You can start using 4 chips, but you can use more than 5 chips. You need to hold all chips using all your fingers, excluding your pinky. It is important to hold other chip firmly. Some choose to hold more chips because it is easier to grip it firmly if you are holding stack of chips.
You need to hold three chips at the edge using all fingers excluding the pinky finger. Use your thumb and the index finger to lift the two chips outside and leave the chip in the middle. To separate the middle chip from the two outside chips, you can lower the middle while you lift the two outside chips. Rotate the bottom chip using the middle finger while you balance the chip using your pinky finger. Once the bottom chip has been rotated, slide the outside chips around the chip at the middle. Its sounds complicated, but through practice you can surely master this trick.
Chip tricks are exciting to learn even if you are not an avid poker player. If you are a player, then it helps you get an advantage.
