It is the combination of angle awareness and choreographed movement with the concealed card(s) that, when combined with proper execution of the steal and add-on techniques, that determines the overall deceptiveness of Palming techniques.

I am in the process of completing a major book, titled "A Call to Palms," which should be available within about a month--illustrations and the index remain to be completed. The book will not be targeted toward beginners but it comes about as close to being a comprehensive overview of the subject of Palming as anything previously published.       


Put me on the list of folks who will be buying, "A Call to Palms".

So great to have you here, Wesley!

I was searching for one handed top palm tips and came across this post. 

I know it is rather old, but i also have small hands. My fingers aren't long at all, but they are wide, so I have odd issues from time to time and have to modify things. 

For a long time I avoided palming but something that helped me was really studying what my hand looked like when naturally grasping a deck (that sounds so weird) and making sure that when I had a palmed card that my hand looked exactly or as close as possible to the natural position. 

I pretty much disregarded what I read as far as "where" the card should be and adjusted to where it should be for MY hand. 

Here is just a little video showing that process a bit without narration or anything.
