usual motion of squaring the ends of the cards with the tips of the fingers and the thumb.4.Grip the pack between the right thumb and fingers, releasing itfrom the hold of the left fingers and thumb, and move themoutwards as if merely squaring the sides of the deck, but in thisaction the first joint of the left little finger levers the cardsabove it upwards into the right palm, being assisted in themovement by the tip of the left thumb on the opposite side of the deck. Fig. 2.5.The right hand must be held motionless as the cards are.pushed up and palmed. The pack is again gripped by the lefthand as m move No. 1, and the right fingers and thumb are slidalong the ends of the deck, squaring them as before.6.Finally seize the pack with the right hand at the Outer top andbottom corners, at the same time extend the left middle fingerand with it push against the middle of the palmed packet,pressing it securely into the palm.7.Remove the left hand leaving the pack gripped by the righthand at the outer top and bottom corners between theforefinger and thumb and bend the other three fingers inwardsa little, bending the cards in towards the palm. Fig. 3.
Note particularly that speed is not required, the action shouldbe simply the apparent squaring of the ends and sides of thedeck. Reference to the One Hand Top Palm in Volume 1 willshow that the principle is the same but, in place of one cardonly, any required number of cards can be palmed
