This displacement of two cards in the center of a spread, as the hands split the spread in two, was published as a new idea by P. Howard Lyons in Ibidem, No. 9, Mar. 1957, p. 202. However, Herb Zarrow reports that he came up with the move years before and described it to Lyons in a letter, months previous to it appearing in Ibidem. Why Lyons published it under his byline is a total mystery.
