 +====== Overhand Shuffle Force ======
 +The principle that a spectator tends to shuffle the top card to the bottom in a single Overhand Shuffle of a small packet of cards was discovered by John S. Frazee and published as "The Shuffle Force" in //​[[http://​​display/​37501/​Linking+Ring/​55-57|The Linking Ring]]//, Vol. 26 No. 2, Apr. 1946, p. 56.
 +It was popularized by Ed Marlo, who described it in //​[[http://​​display/​10976/​Estimation/​36-37|Estimation]]//,​ 1962, p. 33, but didn't recall the exact reference, writing only the following at the end of the description:​ "To my knowledge, the only place this 'top card to bottom'​ in an Overhand Shuffle idea appeared was many years ago in the LINKING RING".
