Does anyone know how this is done, or does anyone know where I can read a description of how it's done?

-Side note, I hate the way those people spring their cards. There is a much better way that doesnt look stupid and bend the cards, and allows much more control and distance. Why do so many people spring that way. :x *short rant*

I'm sorry, but I will never learn the move until someone can actually give me a reason to waste the time. It's a useless move.

It can be used to quickly turn the Tamariz memorized stack into a stay-stack. Right now I'm using a lack-luster trick which deals the required cards into two piles. A flourish would be much nicer.

Thanks for the link, but your rant doesn't get much credit if you don't tell us the "better" way. :P

The rant was for me mostly. I know a few others that spring the cards like me, and they like it alot better over that one shown.

Are you trying to keep this method a secret or something?

Yes, the Anitfaro is also a method to get the result of the faro shuffle through deals and specific pick up sequences with one or 2 hands. It is highly regarded and mentioned quite frequently by Tamariz in Sonata & Mnemonica. Very neat system!! So many nuances and justifications for it as well.

ps. I never seen the russian shuffle used like that before to make a fake faro. That may become very useful. Props, just needs to be cleaned up abit.
