-Elmer Biddle published this sleight in //​[[http://​askalexander.org/​display/​36723/​Genii/​8|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.+Elmer Biddle published this sleight in //​[[http://​askalexander.org/​display/​36723/​Genii/​8|Genii]]//, ​Vol. 11 No. 8, Apr. 1947, p. 241. Ed Marlo maintained that Tony Kardyro had independently devised this steal and was using it some years before its publication by Biddle ​(see Marlo'​s comment in //​[[http://​askalexander.org/​display/​11088/​Ibidem+2/​196|Ibidem]]//,​ No. 23, Mar. 1961, p. 506).
