Marios Push Switch

The card in the right hand should be in the Thumb Clip Palm as in Figure 3. The left hand plays no part in this Switch. The tabled card is to the right of the right hand and slightly forward as in Figure 69.

2. The right hand moves in towards the tabled card in such a manner as to get the palmed card under the tabled card. To facilitate this you can previously have taken the trouble to bend the sides of the tabled card upwards so that the palmed card in the right hand can enter easily beneath it. Also the right side of the hand lifts ever so slightly just as the palmed card is being introduced under the tabled card. This lift is very slight and just enough to prevent the right hand from actually pushing the tabled card away. The upper right corner of the palmed card enters under the tabled card at about its center as in A of Figure 70.

3. After the right hand has completed the action of getting its card under the tabled card, the right hand will be covering both cards which will be in approximately the position shown in B of Figure 70. The single X at lower left corner shows the card still in the Thumb Clip.

4. When the cards are under the right hand and the lower card still in the Thumb Clip the right hand moves both cards forward just as if pushing the

one tabled card aside. When the two cards have been moved sufficiently forward, the right thumb releases its hold on the clipped corner but the length of the right 4th finger applies pressure only on the right side of the top card as shown by the three X marks at B of Figure 70.

5. The right hand now moves back to its starting position sliding the top card along under the right hand while the lower card is now on the table. The Figure 70 at C shows the action of the movement, as the right moves away with its card. The Figure 69 shows the finish of the action.

6. After the Push Switch the right hand can travel to the edge of the table and then get the card into any position you wish such as a Rear Angle Palm, Rear Flat Palm or even a standard palm. From here unload as you wish in accordance with your effect.

7. The Mario Push Switch can be used in the effect described previously under the Mario Card Switch, The First Effect. In this case your right hand would do the Push Switch so the card would be moved above the spread of cards then on the return you would scoop up the spread as already shown in Figure 68. You will find the Push Switch plus this method of unloading, into the spread deck, an ideal combination.

Push Switch Variation

1. In this case the right hand has the card in a Rear Flat Palm. (See Figure 1 and 56} The tabled card is Anchored by the left fingers and the situation is as in Figure 71.

Figure 71

2. Once both cards are under the right hand, as in A of Figure 72, the upper right corner, indicated by one X, is still clipped between the 4th and 3rd fingers at the base of the palm. The side of the right thumb, indicated by three X marks, presses down on the left side of the top card. In this position both cards are moved, still under the right hand, to the right as in B of Figure 72.
