Hi! :)

I just wonder what the palm where you push of the bottom card into the hand you would normaly do a top palm with is called and where I can learn it?

Thanks.

You mean a palm of the bottom card into full palm in the right hand?

Typically called a side steal or a side slip, commonly attributed to T. Nelson Downs and Nate Leipzig. There are numerous descriptions in print - far too many to list. I've included a partial list below of some excellent techniques and descriptions.

Roberto Giobbi - Card College 3 (a thorough basic description)
John Carney - Book of Secrets (an excellent description - outlines some important psychology behind the move)
Ed Marlo - The Side Steal (this is an excellent handling that eliminates the left finger flutter - it is David Ben's preferred approach)
Nate Leipzig - Dai Vernon's Tribute to Nate Leipzig (a beautiful handling that uses the left pinky to anchor the deck - allows the left thumb to remain straight along the side of the deck)

I would pay special attention to Marlo and Leipzig's approach - they each have merits that hasn't really been improved upon since their conception.

Hope this helps.

Cheers
Ted

Yes, thats what I mean. Thank you for listing those books! c: Do you know any dvd that explains the move? I've found myself learning better from dvds because my main language is swedish (it helps me a lot to look at the video). Thanks again! :D
