  1. Start by holding the deck in dealer's grip.
  2. Rest the tip of your other hand's middle finger on the short edge of the deck that is farthest from you.
  3. Rest that same hand's thumb on the short edge of the deck that is closest to you.
  4. Use that thumb to secretly lift two cards vertically about a quarter inch from the deck.
  5. Take both cards and lift them away from the deck between your middle finger and thumb.
  6. Turn over the cards as one in the air, as if you were opening a book.
  7. Show the face of the second card, and then turn your hand back over, dropping the two cards, as one, back onto the deck.
