The Palm False Count

This is another method of counting less cards than you appear to. Assume that you count twelve cards apparently into spectator's hand, but in reality count nine.


Hold nine cards squared up, backs of cards up, in left hand. Push off top card about half way to right. Place right hand over it and palm it, Figure 27.

This is not an invisible palming. You do not try to conceal card in this case. Place card on a spectator's outstretched hand and count "ONE." Continue this with THREE cards.

As you pretend to remove fourth card, pull it back on to the deck with left thumb. Continue motion of hand to spectator's, pretending to place a fourth card on top of the three already there. Spectator will not be aware that you do not actually place a fourth card in his hand.

Place the fifth card down legitimately. False count the sixth. Place the seventh down legitimately. False count the eighth.

Place the next four down legitimately. Count—"TWELVE." NOTE:

After first two cards are laid down on spectator's hand, palm is not exposed to audience. They take it for granted that you have a card each time, but they cannot see it.

The "Pick Up" and "Palm" False Counts may be combined and used to begin the experiment "Cards That Pass in the Night"— or other experiments. Have spectator count 24 cards into your hand, then you False Count FIFTEEN as TWELVE into one spectator's hand and NINE as TWELVE into another spectator's hand. Thus you can cause three cards apparently to pass from one spectator to the other.
