Good evening,

I am a beginner from Italy. Please I need your help. Let's suppose that I have a deck (face down) in my hands and let's suppose that I insert three cards (face up) in different position inside the deck. Now I want to spread the deck on the table. Is it possible to hide the three cards when I spread the deck on the table ?

Thanks

SAC move I don't know who originated it but I have seen it on the Oz Pearlman dvd Stealing Pips.Maybe someone could enlighten you more.

Assuming your right handed, one way would be to right jog the 3 cards under cover of your R.hand as you push them into the deck.

I'm not sure where you want to go with this but culling the 3 to bottom should work too.

John Bannons book Smoke and Mirrors has an effect called Shake Well Before Using, that utilizes a useful technique. He uses a pressure fan for display rather than a ribbon spread, and refers to "Elmsleys pressure fan concealment idea".

In this he hides 50% of the cards in the deck, so it is certainly an efficient method.

The method described in Smoke and Mirrors is apparently an improvement to the original handling he published in Mirage (out of print for a long time).
