It takes SO long to learn how to do this, and I only do this once in my practice set with Darwin Ortiz's Maximum Risk from the book S & F With Cards.

Do you do the push-off or the strike BD? I do the strike. Also, how long did it take you to learn it? It took me FOREVER lol to get it down. I can't do the push off, ( I tried ) to learn it.

The BD is not just for Poker Deals, but is a sleightly used move that can do miracles with a deck of cards. What routines do you use it with ? What type of reaction do you get with your routines?

Thanks for your attention!

Rick,

In this video interview with Allan Ackerman, he discusses with Rudy the importance of the bottom deal.  He also discusses his original 'Minus One Bottom Deal', a "Greek Style" bottom.



Many Bottom Deals are made easier when working with less than a full deck.  Bottoms with packets are much easier than with a full deck.  I tend to use a strike action with a bigger pack and a buckle action with small packets.

Here's Mister Thickoe once again. What are the Strike Bottom Deal and the Pushoff Bottom?

I've been using the bottom deal for years and can only recall seeing these terms used in relation to the second, which I've also been using for years, along with perfect Tops.

I'm familiar with the Greek Deal, but along with the Middle Deal, it's beyond me.

A Strike Bottom requires a light grip on the pack and a gap between the second finger and ring finger of the hand holding the pack. The forefinger is at the front of the pack.

The dealing hand approaches the deck and the second finger reaches into the created gap and contacts the card, pulling it out with light upward and outward pressure.

This varies obviously from the disengagement of the bottom card via a buckle action.

Both have their strengths, limitations and I gave my person rationale in using one over the other.
