Misdirection Palming

Place right hand over cards. With aid of little finger of left hand, palm the top three cards of the packet in right palm. Figure 19.

Hold the other nine cards in right hand also to make it appear that you merely transferred packet from left to right hand. Figure 20.

"You are convinced, are you not, that there is nothing in my pocket?"

Figure 21 shows position of cards in hand. Three cards are palmed in right hand and remaining nine cards of the packet are held by thumb and forefinger.

The audience sees only the back of your hand.

Place the packet of nine cards into left hand again and draw right hand with palmed cards away toward trousers' pocket. Figure 22.

Put right hand into right trousers' pocket and push the three cards into the upper corner. Hold them there a moment with thumb. Figure 23.

With tips of fingers bring out the pocket. You will find that pocket can be drawn out and shown empty even when there is something in it. Figure 24. Replace pocket.

NOTE THE USE HERE OF EMPHASIS. You requested spectator to reach into pocket. He found that it was empty. Now you pull out pocket and show it to be empty. The audience is in this way convinced that you have nothing in your pocket.

"I will now recount the cards to make assurance doubly sure."

FALSE COUNT the nine cards as twelve. Refer back to the first effect in this lesson for explanation of false counting.

Count the cards one at a time aloud. ALWAYS HAVE BACKS OF CARDS TO AUDIENCE in this form of false counting. There is danger of detection if the audience can see the faces of the cards for they are likely to notice when the same kind of card remains in sight for two counts.

"Twelve cards."

Hold the packet in left hand, backs of cards to audience.

Figure 21 shows position of cards in hand. Three cards are palmed in right hand and remaining nine cards of the packet are held by thumb and forefinger.
