Amazing. But why does he look up above him that often? Does he want to prove that he doesn't look at the cards? Are there nice pictures at the ceiling at Magic Tournaments? Weird.

This player is constantly under the speck of judges.
Rumor has it that the DCI doesn't like how this guy shuffles, but they can't really force him to do it differently.
Opponents don't like this either.
Might be just a bad case of collective envy for not being as awesome as him.

my guess is that it's to show that he can't possibly be sneaking peeks when manipulating the cards in that particular manner

Yeah, that's my guess too.
