Here it is used to control the card which is not a forced selection in the true sense. In other words, after a shuffled deck is handed to you, on the initial peek you will know if you have hit a Sudden Stop card. If you have, go into a jog shuffle and get the card back to its original position.
Now holding the deck face down, in Fingertip Position, you say, "Remember I had you just peek at a card and then I shuffled it." During this patter you riffle the corner to the Sudden Stop, push this corner, moving the top block over to the left. Then go into an Overhand Shuffle, taking the stepped block first, then shuffling off. The noted card is now on the bottom of the deck where you can control it as you wish. You can also glimpse the card for a safe measure in case the spectator wants to shuffle the pack.
