You apparently show both sides of the card to the audience but in reality show only one. You must practice this in front of your mirror until you are able to perform the move smoothly and quickly. The illusion is perfect when the move is performed properly.
Hold card as in illustration 3. Blank side of card is toward audience. Back of hand is toward you. First and second fingers in back and thumb, third and fourth fingers in front of card.
Hold card in front of you a little below level of chin and in front of left shoulder, as in Figure 4.
Swing right hand toward the right. As you do this, the card is brought to a sharp angle in the vision of the audience, but it is not turned enough to expose the numbers on the back. Move illustrated in Figure 5.
When arm is about halfway down in the movement, force card downward with right thumb. Do this quickly. See Figure 6.
