SPRING SET FLOURISH
This is a very cool flourish devised by John Cornelius. It enables you to flip over the top card of the deck with one hand. Watch the flourish below then learn how to do it...
Start by holding the deck in your preferred hand. Hold the deck as shown in this picture. This is called the "mechanics grip" Push the top card to the side (towards your fingers) with your thumb. Move the second card below the top card out to the other side a bit with your thumb and tap down on its corner.
This card will then catapult the top card up into the air in a spin. You then need to catch it on top of the deck again.
This is a pretty easy shuffle that looks cool. It may take a bit of practice but is very satisfying to perform. Watch and learn the flourish below...
