Finger Break




Hold the deck in you left hand palm with your pinky against the edge. By lifting off X number of cards off the back edge of the deck with the right thumb you can force the cards to stay separated with your pinky. When you need to lift of those cards or remember the place you can do it without any problems. This move is critical when doing the double-lift and other multiple card maneuvers.
