The other three fingers are a bit curled under the deck. The right hand is moved closer to the left hand and the right thumb locks by applying pressure on the top car a few cards from the top of the deck. Then the right hand moves back and the locked cards are drawn from the top of the deck to the left hand. This procedure is repeated until all the cards are in the left hand. Another common shuffle you see in all casinos is known as the Table Riffle. Here is how it's done. First thing to do is place the deck flat on the table with the longer side facing towards you.

Cut about a half of the cards and place them next to the rest of the cards so the short sides of both stacks touch. Put your right hand on the stack on the right so that your thumb is in the left corner of the deck on the side facing towards you, your index finger should be on top of the stack in the middle of the short side close to the edge and the rest of the fingers are on the longer side of the deck opposite to you.

The left hand is placed on the left stack in mirror symmetry with the right hand.
