To make the description easy to follow, visualize the deck in three approximately equal sections. Section A is the top third, Section B is the middle third, and Section C is the bottom third (figure 1).

a) Start with the deck face down in dealing position in your left hand.

b) Bring your right hand over and grasp Section A at the inner corners between your middle finger and thumb. Your right first finger rests on the back of the top card (figure 2). Pull Section A inward and then slap it onto the table.

c) Immediately return your right hand to the deck and grasp it at the inner corners once again. Remember to rest your first finger on the back of the top card as before. This time, however, you pull the bottom third, (Section C) inward (figure 3) and slap it on top of Section A (figure 4). Your right first finger creates the illusion of the top section being removed as it glides over it and onto the lower section.

d) Come back and pick up the last third (Section B) and drop it on top of all.

At the completion, the order of the three packets is: B, C, and A. The effect on the deck is the same as a single complete cut, where Section A has been cut to the bottom.

a) Start with the deck face down in dealing position in your left hand.

b) Bring your right hand over and grasp the middle third of the deck (Section B) at the inner corners between your middle finger and thumb. Your right first finger rests on the back of the top card. Pull Section B inward, your right first finger riding with it (figure 5), then slap it onto the table. Your left thumb retains the break at the left side (figure 6).

c) Immediately return your right hand to the deck, grasp the packet above the break(Section A), pull it inward and slap it on top of Section B on the table.

d) Finally, come back and pick up the last third (Section C) and drop it on top of all.

At the completion, the order of the three packets is: C, A, and B. The effect on the deck is again the same as a single complete cut, with Section C having been cut to the top.
