The Downward Deal

In this the action of dealing the card off the deck is a sharp straight down to the table action. The card is not first pulled off the deck then dealt to table but rather snapped down directly from the deck to the table.

Holding the pack slightly higher off the table than normal is also an aid. In doing a Second Deal, using this action, a fine brief gives even more visual deception. It is, however, most ideal for a bottom deal especially one in which the bottom of the deck is free of fingers such as in the Missing Finger Deal wherein all fingers are curled in under the deck. This permits the bottom card to come straight down off the bottom of the deck. Do not let go of the card if you are going to deal it forward, but sail it instead.
