Example text

In this chapter we will deal with the methods Dai Vernon employs, but as we will be constantly referring to a step in the pack, we will commence by explaining how this step is formed. BASIC FORMATION OF A STEP It is often desirable to cut the pack before commencing a riffle shuffle on the table. Additionally, it may be desirable to cut the pack after the shuffle. It is therefore necessary to be able to restore the position before proceeding, and Dai Vernon uses a step break to enable this to be done.

It will now appear that the top half of the right packet has been shuffled down into the left packet. Push the packets straight in together until the cards jam. Place the second fingers against the ends of the packets and press the tip of the left forefinger on the top card of the left packet. Retaining the pressure with the left forefinger, push the packets completely together. This squaring action and the pressure of the left Page 55 forefinger, causes the single card dropped by the left thumb to pivot out and project at the right end of the inner side of the pack (Figure 1 ).

This could be done under the closest scrutiny. Page 46 A variation which Dai Vernon has evolved for preserving the entire order of the cards is:— Begin the shuffle as before up to the position shown in Figure 1, but when commencing to release the cards, release about half of the right hand packet before the left hand starts to release any cards. Continue the shuffle, but this time there will be an unshuffled block of about a quarter of the pack on the right hand side. Push the cards together and through as before, until the position shown in Figure 3 is reached.
