Is this a metaphor or simile?
You'll get kicked out of the Saloon faster than a card shark can shuffle.

It's neither. There is no figurative language used here. A card shark is understood to be a fast shuffler, so the comparison is used for rhetorical effect. But it's not figurative. The reference presumably refers literally to the time it takes a card shark to shuffle.
