Smooth False Cut ending

Now place the first pile on to the second pile making sure there is a indent so you can find the break easily. Then place this pile now onto the third pile making sure you keep another indent to the second break.

Pull the cards towards yourself making sure your hands are covering the indents on the right side of the pack. Your handling of the pile will make or break how the spectator will see the pile. It should look like a complete squared deck. You hands will do the covering if done correctly.

Using your thumbs find the indents and separate the piles and the follow up but placing them back into the correct order. This way the cards will be as they were at the beginning of the false cut.

Its really easy to do and once you get the timing right it will be a great way of fooling your audience in seeing the cards have been randomly mixed.
