Bits Of Misdirection

move, or close very slowly on the cards to avoid any noticeable movement. At times it is impossible to eliminate it entirely. It is our theory that if the movement can not be eliminated then another movement must be used to cover it.

Let us suppose that the bottom cards have just pivoted so that they lie in line with the palm of the left hand. In order to curl those cards into the palm, it is necessary to move the left fingers very slowly, almost imperceptibly. Instead if you immediately go into the square-up position you will note that the cards curl into the palm. The movement looks natural because the shifting of the pack up to the left fingertips gives it an excuse.
