Side Steal Cover

Probably the first one to use the top card of the pack in order to conceal a Side-Steal was Arthur Buckley in his Card Control in conjunction with an effect called The Extraordinary Queens.

At the time I felt that palming the card, then trying to slip it under the top card was not as efficient as first pushing over the top card, then Side-Stealing the card under cover of the top card.

We showed the following method to Bill Simon many years ago. He developed an entirely different technique which can be found in Effective Card Magic. If the card student has the other sources available he can compare and evaluate these three methods.
