How to Do the False Cut Card Trick

The False Cut Card trick is another simple type of the Sleight Index. You can play this trick simply by holding the deck by the sides, such that you have the index and the ring finger on the top of the cards and the thumb at the bottom. Now spin one card from the bottom in the anticlockwise direction ensuring that it is not visible to the audience. After doing this show the bottom card to the audience and deal a few cards on the table. The audience will feel as you are pulling cards from the bottom of the deck. However, after pulling a few cards when you will show the bottom of the deck to the audience, the cards that they saw previously at the bottom will still be there.
