The cards are fanned one handed and the third finger pulls down at the same time.

BOB OSTIN'S THE "FAN HIDE" MOVE

The cards are fanned one handed and the third finger pulls down at the same time.

BOB OSTIN'S THE "FAN HIDE" MOVE

Here is a way of hiding a card when fanning a small packet of cards. For instance having used the Buckle count to show say five cards, when actually there are six. The move can follow up as a convincer before proceeding with the effect. I use it for Skullocation — fanning the cards for a last check just before they are placed in the skull's mouth.

Hold say — six cards face up in the right hand as in Fig.l. The side of the third finger by the top joint is pressed against the edge of the packet.

Now, the cards are fanned — one handed — the right first and second fingers moving to the left beneath the packet, and the thumb moving to the right above. At the same time the third finger pulls downwards, this causes the bottom card to bend downwards out of sight of the spectator — although in full view of the performer! as in Fig.2.

The main thing to remember with this move is that no conscious effort should be made to separate this bottom card — just fan the cards — pull down — and it happens of itself.

Points of interest are:—

1. You don't need to know how many cards are in the packet.

2. You can glimpse the hidden card in a natural way.

3. The card in its "pulled down" position could easily be slid beneath another packet, envelope, etc.

4. Being one handed it seems casual and beyond suspicion. 110
