"up" to Cards
Card Palms are usually categorized by where the card begins:
|top of the deck||(ex: Erdnase Top Palms)|
|bottom of the deck||(ex: Erdnase Bottom Palms)|
|in the deck||(ex: Diagonal Palm Shift)|
|out of the deck||(ex: Card Back Palm)|
- From Expert at the Card Table: palming can be brought to a degree of perfection that borders on the wonderful. It is very simple to place one or several cards in the palm and conceal them by partly closing and turning the palm downward, or inward; but it is entirely another matter to palm them from the deck in such a manner that the most critical observer would not even suspect, let alone detect, the action.
