-====== Divided Deck Riffle-Shuffle Glimpse ====== 
-Jack McMillen and Judson Brown contributed "Telltale Color" to the March 1934 issue of //[[|The Sphinx]]//, Vol. 33, No. 1, p. 12. In this article, McMillen and Brown explained how the odd-colored card could be sighted while riffling for the division of the deck in preparation for an in-the-hands riffle shuffle. (The trick was curiously reprinted as "Tell Tale Color" in the December 1940 issue of //[[|The Sphinx]]//, Vol. 39, No. 10, p. 247.) 
-Milbourne Christopher published the idea of spotting a single selection resting in a different colored bank during the interlacing of the cards for a tabled riffle shuffle in //[[|Hugard's Magic Monthly]]//, Vol. 18, No. 9, May 1961, p. 99, and quotes from private notes made by Jean Hugard on July 18, 1934. Those notes, though, are predated by four months by the above //The Sphinx// citation. 
-Gordon Bruce has built on all this, with an elegant strategy for sighting two selections, using a push-through shuffle (see Giobbi's //Secret Agenda//, 2010, July 8 entry, p. 210).
