The Double Undercut is a useful method for either controlling a specific card to the top of the deck, or for cutting a small packet of cards from the top of the deck to the bottom. While a single cut would, in most cases, accomplish the same thing, the "Double Undercut" has the advantage of being more deceptive due to the fact the deck is quickly cut twice and it is harder for viewers to mentally comprehend how two cuts could accomplish anything specific. Thus, the actions pass as a flourish.
First, a procedure for controlling a chosen card to the top of the deck will be described. Then, the "Double Undercut" is shifting cards from the top of the deck to the bottom will be covered.
