Example text

Showing the hands : To show the inside of the hands, the right thumb pushes upwards on the lower long side of the packet, which releases the corners clipped by the left thumb. The left thumb revolves around the bottom long side of the packet and comes up in front of the right thumb. By sliding the thumbs together, the left end of the packet is made to slide across Page 59 the back of the left hand (Figure 5).. The hands turn to bring the palms towards the audience who see the fronts of the interlocked fingers and the empty palms (Figure 6).

With the proper timing this double change is most effective, the right thumb appearing to make the face card change, on two occasions, as it wipes across the face of the pack. Page 46 3 — DAI V E R N O N ' S "PICKING OFF THE PIP" The effect of this change is that the performer appears to pick off the centre pip of, say, the Three of Clubs with the thumb and forefinger of his right hand. Have the Three of Clubs on the face, and the Two of Clubs on the back of the face up pack. Hold the pack in the left hand, almost in the dealer's position, the thumb along the left long side, the second, third and little fingers at the other long side and the tip of the forefinger resting about half an inch from the right outer corner of the back card.

To interlock the fingers, the right first finger goes between the first and second fingers of the left hand as in the previous method, but the second and third fingers of the right hand go between the second and little fingers of the left hand. With the fingers interlocked in this new fashion (and the cards in position), looking down from above you will see the right first finger, left second finger, right second and third fingers together, left little finger, then the right little finger (Figure 13).
