-====== Biddle Count ====== 
-Elmer Biddle published this sleight in //[[|Genii]]//, April 1947, p. 241. Marlo maintained that Tony Kardyro had independently devised this steal and was using it some years before its publication by Biddle. However, a new contender, discovered by Max Maven, is Eddie Joseph. See his "Repeat Six Card Trick" in //Strictly Magic//, 1939, p. 8. The false count Joseph describes is identical to Biddle's in mechanics and intent, differing only in that the packet is held by its sides, as in a glide, rather than by the ends.
