Example text

Begin the riffle but thumb off the bottom three cards of the left hand packet, then continue from the right hand packet, making a normal riffle with the entire pack. Push in the two packets until they jam. Place the second finger of each hand at the ends of the packets and push in and square up by running the second fingers from front to back of the edges to meet the thumbs (Figure I ). Page 52 By sloping the right second finger to the left, the right end of the pack is bevelled slightly. In Figure 2 the pack has been picked up by the right hand to show the under portion of the pack—this is not done in performance, of course.

The third card. Hold the packet on end in the left hand, make the click as before (Figure I ) , then remove the third card from the pocket and toss it onto the table. The fourth, fifth and sixth cards. With their faces towards the audience spread the cards between the hands and say, "Some of you card players can remember some of the cards and see that I use the same cards throughout". As the spread is closed, jog the two back cards slightly downwards so that when the packet is placed back in the left hand in the position for making the click, the left little finger can get a break between the two jogged cards and the rest of the packet—the second and third fingers are curled behind the packet.

From this position it is now simple to transfer the open break to the tip of the left little finger. NOTE. Although we have dealt with the formation of the step in connection with the riffle shuffle, it will be realised that the step can be formed directly as the result of the SPECTATOR'S PEEK, and the pack placed down on the table when the foregoing ruses will apply equally well. THE PULL THROUGH SHUFFLE This shuffle retains the complete order of the pack, even though the cards are seen to be fairly mixed by a method of shuffling accepted by the most experienced card players.
