Figure 650.

You'll notice that the take is performed more off the front edge of the upper left corner rather than the side. This is so the card aligns itself correctly for the given sleight. You'll also find that once you have a card palmed, it gets in the way during a standard take. The easiest thing option is simply to raise your take slightly so the palmed card moves above the top of the deck. (See figure 651.)

However, this eliminates some of the uses for the lateral palm and thus at times you may find it favorable to move the palmed card beneath the deck, in which case you'll need to use your forefinger to skewer the alignment of the card slightly in order to facilitate the correct action. (See figure 652 and figure 653.)

Depending on your angles, it also works to transfer the card to tenkai palm where it is out of the way. There are other applications as well that I'll not mention in this volume but involve various other approaches depending on what you want done with the card. Ultimately, while admittedly, the Count's grip is not the best possible method of dealing for the snap deal, it is easily adapted and works well.

Finally, as with the punch deal, you may make use of the snap deal to correct a double deal by holding back the card. This is nice both due to the superior angles, but also because the snap deal is much more convincing than the Benzais cop. Keep in mind however, that if you wish to use this method you should perform the snap action on all of your deals. Generally, I don't find the snap deal is as effective for the hand mucking as I mentioned for the Benzais cop.
