Hey I was just wondering, is there such a thing as the one handed bottom palm? I know you can do a one handed top palm, and that got me thinking... Is it possible?

I suppose you could from a gambler's cop position.

You could I guess.

Jennings however pivots the card into the regular palm position, it's quite the show of dexterity if you ask me.

Couldn't you just do a one-handed top palm upside down with the left hand? Wouldn't it come out the same?

I think the problem is that you hold the deck perpendicular to your bottom hand, while the top if parallel, thereby much easier to palm the top card than the bottom.

hey tyran101 are you maxcron? You asked about the one handed bottom palm just as max was on the itricks frequency recently and you asked about a move for your celebrity name trick in another thread (assuming it is you).

No, because that's not at all a natural way to hold a deck of cards, in order to make it work you would just have to hold the deck face up in a biddle type grip - Which would result in your one handed bottom palm being a one handed top palm. ;)

No acebrawler, i am not. But to everyone else, do you know where I can find this one handed bottom palm. Bravesaint's first post seemed full of excitement like he was seeing magic for the first time again, and this immediately got me to feel that as well. Thank you, bravesaint, it is a wonderful feeling. Only Dai Vernon made me feel that when I had seen a recording of him when I was younger. If only I could have met him. Back to the point, where can I see and/or learn this luxury of dexterity?

In his column in Genii this month, Aaron Fisher mentions two one handed bottom palms. These be Ernest Earick's OHBP in By Forces Unseen, which is based on Paul Curry's OHBP. So you can check those out if you like.

Your local magic shop, if you have one.

Or from Genii directly:

Or from any of a number of on-line magic book dealers.
