1. This makes use of the Clip Palm between the 2nd and 3rd fingers near the base of the palm. See Figure 23 for getting into Clip Palm. For the present assume you have the card in Clip Palm position in the right hand. The left fingers have a Corner Hold on the tabled card. Right hand now starts to move in towards the card held by the left hand. This is similar in action to Figure 25 except remember the left fingers have a Corner Hold on its card.
2. Move the Clipped Card under the card held by the left fingers. The action is similar to Figure 26. Continue the action untill you reach the state of affairs as shown in Figure 27 where the two cards are now more or less in line. At this point a radical change in procedure takes place.
3. You will note that as the cards are in Alignment, as per Figure 27, the back of the left thumb nail will be pressing down on the under card while the upper right corner of the top card will jam itself between the 2nd and 3rd fingers of the right hand. Now comes the important action. Press down, with the back of the left thumb, on the under card while the right 2nd and 3rd fingers pinch the upper right corner of the top card. Move the right hand away and the left thumb pressure will retain the under card on the table while the right 2nd and 3rd fingers will hold onto the top card. Thus this moving away from the card will result in a situation again similar to Figure 25 except the right hand does not move that far away but remains rather close to the tabled card.
4. Once more the right hand now moves in under the new card but only for the distance shown in Figure 26. At this point the left thumb moves over to the inner right corner of the top card in order to lever it so performer only can see the face of the card as in Figure 76.
The card at this stage can be turned face up or returned to the table face down. The latter is preferable, it being done by the left hand as the right moves away to Unload its Clipped card. The right hand can move to the edge of the table and the clipped card brought to a Rear Angle Palm. If you wish you can get the card into a Rear Angle Palm without moving to the edge of the table. By pressing inwards, with tip of the right 2nd finger, the card held out can be moved back far enough so that the ball the right thumb can engage the left side of the card to hold it in a Rear Angle Palm. From here Unload or handle as you see fit.
