Biddle Move (or Steal or Vanish) is a card sleight developed by Elmer Biddle and described in Genii 1947 April, Vol. 11, No. 8, page 241 under the title Transcendent.

Used the Biddle Trick, this move enabled the invention of many False Counts, most notably by Bob Veeser and Brother John Hamman in the 1950s, which in turn, helped pave the way for the packet trick boom in the 1970s.

K.B. Move

K.B. Move (Kardyro-Biddle) was a false count developed independently of the Biddle Move by Tony Kardyro, but included breaks to give the technique flexibility.

Described by Ed Marlo in M-U-M, Vol. 49, No. 7, December 1959, page 280.

Originally called the "T.K. Move", it was developed by Kardyro in the early 1930s when he was in Honolulu for a gambling routine.[1]

It also has been referred to as the "Biddyro Count or Technique", this move later inspired the Veeser Concept.
