 +====== Leg Turnover ======
 +Secretly turning over the top card of the deck against the left leg is often credited to Jean Hugard, but it was earlier published by Alexander in //​[[https://​​display/​38533/​The+Sphinx/​26|The Sphinx]]//, Vol. 32 No. 2, Apr. 1933, p. 58. Hugard later popularized the same method in his and Fred Braue'​s //Royal Road to Card Magic//, 1947, p. 177.
 +Hugard also published a related idea in //Card Manipulations No. 2//, 1933, p. 34. In this version, the card is transferred from the face of the deck to the back, with no reverse occurring.
