To Vanish The Last Three Cards

This is a most important move and one which can be used in many effects to vanish a number of cards. With practice you will perfect this move and become skilled in its use.

The effect is that you just push the cards into left hand which closes on them. Then you open left hand -- and the cards have vanished.

When cards are almost all in left hand push tips of right fingers forward. This causes card to pivot on first finger of left hand and to revolve automatically into the right palm. Bend right hand slightly and palm the cards. Fig. 41.

At the moment when cards are propelled into right hand, close left hand as though cards are in it. Lift left hand up, constantly looking at it. Remember your MISDIRECTION here -- not to look at right hand at any time when you have cards palmed in it. Figure 42.

Open hand slowly and show that cards have vanished.

Now place right hand suddenly into right trousers' pocket, push palmed cards into upper corner of pocket, and bring pocket out empty. Then pull left pocket out empty. Look perplexed as though you do not know where the cards are. Push the pocket back in again. Reach up under coat to left shoulder, then feel around vest for them. Give your vest a shake as though you are shaking something down. Then suddenly reach into right trousers' pocket again and remove the three cards.

Or right hand can be pushed under left side of coat and cards produced from shoulder.
