Step 1: Grip
Griping the cards is easy. All you have to do is take your fingers ( not including your thumb ) and then put your thumb on the other side in the center. look at the pictures for reference. Once you do so move on to the next step.
Step 2: The Curl
This is a simple but important part of this trick. Curl all of the cards so they look like they do in picture two. Once that is done go to the next step.
Step 3: The Retracting Thumb
Now, hold your hand out to where you think the cards will land and hold your fingers to where they can catch the cards but, you feel comfortable the way you position you fingers. Now slide your thumb slowly upwards gripping the cards slightly tighter while doing so. Look at the pictures for more detail.
Step 4: Turn That Deck Over!
By now the cards will have mostly left your hand and into the other. Now remember, this part is very important... FLIP OVER THE DECK!!!!!!!! This will prevent you from bending the deck to badly and then try again.
