Palming Volume Three – The Side Steal
UPDATED! Palming Volume Three – The Side Steal
The quality of instruction offered here will quickly put you on the road toward mastering this most useful sleight and this volume covers all these aspects in detail.
Topics covered are:
•The Left-Hand Diagonal Palm (a simple, pivot-point based steal that can be quickly learned)
•The Left-Hand Peek Steal (a remarkably efficient steal of a peeked-at card)
•The Erdnase Diagonal Palm Shift (the move that separates the men from the boys, examined in a clear, easy-to-understand way with an emphasis on the key points and the problematic moments of the sleight)
•The Arthur Findley variation of the diagonal palm shift
•The Standard Side Steal (with variations of Ed Marlo’s Technical Steal and Deliberate Side Steal) •The Gambler’s Flat-Palm Steal (three methods that will be of great value to those of you who, like me, have small hands)
•The Loewy Palm (a fast way to steal the top card of the deck into the left hand)
In addition, there is information on the psychology of card controls (including an easy control that will fool anyone – magician or layman), effective methods for delaying the side steal, methods for delaying the diagonal palm shift, turning the diagonal palm shift into an “action palm,” and resources for further study.
Also included is new analysis of the inherent problems of moves like the DPS and ways to dispel “the heat” when using the side steal as a card control.
