Just a small question for my own personal learning. I am trying to do a multiple card exchange. I hold four aces and swap them for for 'queens' on the top of the deck. I want to do a similar to a top change move.. as in an off beated switch. do you put your cards on top of the deck in biddle grip then pull out the queens or should you put your cards under the top four then just take them off from the top??

cheers

Have a look into the 4 for 4 switch in Kenner's book, Out of Control. I'm not sure if it's published elsewhere but it looks like you show the 4 queens fanned out and turn them face down onto the deck and the switch is done.

Pinky break, let the 4 on top fall sidejogged outwards from the deck.

Come together putting 4 cards flush with deck, then grip sidejogged with right hand and come away.

Works as an off-beat topchange for 1-20 or so cards.

I think John Carney's versa switch would accomplish what you're trying to do. It can be found in Carneycopia. Hope this helps

Carney's 'Versa Switch' came to me also. I just wasn't sure if that was the name or it was the 'Yenrac ?' thing. Don't have the book handy.

I've done switch by holding a break under say four Qs.
Then place the four Aces firmly in the crotch of the L.thumb, at an angle and above the Qs. Using just the dealing LH, you can then allow the Qs to slide over the breaking finger and be tossed to the table (or RH) as the As fall onto the deck.

If I do the Biddle type switch Alex mentions then the Aces are above the Qs.

Jaz,
You're right, there is also a sleight in Carneycopia called the Yenrac packet switch that would also work in this situation. I had forgotten about it when I made my post.

Yup, there's one in Totally Out of Control by Chris Kenner

You might wanna take a look at that

Kenner's and the Versa switch seem to be about the same.

The other place you might want to look is in Simon Lovell's book Simon Says.
He has several routines that use a switch of four for four.
