This is especially adapted for shifting the "Bottom" card to the "Top" of the deck when cards are held backs up in left hand.
Hold pack in left hand, thumb on top of it and fingers under it. Grasp pack at A edge with first and second fingers of right hand and at B edge with thumb of right hand. Figure 17.
With fingers of left hand slide bottom card toward the right so that it is automatically slipped into right hand with AD corner pressed into first joint of little finger and second joint of third finger and BC corner pressed into first joint of thumb. Figure 18.
Draw deck just far enough to left to allow placing of deck below card in right hand. Right hand does not move; the left hand performs the move. The "Bottom" card is now on "Top" of the deck. Finish by bringing up the deck into position between thumb and first and second fingers of right hand with faces of cards toward audience. Figure 19.
