This palm is deceptive because the impression of controlling rather than palming, is given.

1. Assume the four bottom cards are to be palmed. The left fourth finger separates these cards from rest of the deck. The pack is also held deep in Mechanic's Grip, (see Figure 1 for a similar position).

2. The right hand cuts off about a third of the pack and drops it onto the table.

3. The right hand comes back and cuts off another third of the deck and drops it onto the first tabled portion.

4. The right hand now comes over and takes all the cards up to the break. At the same time the left hand moves down to the side as it goes away with its palmed cards.

5. The whole action is that of merely cutting the deck several times.
