Kingston Bridge

A card bent, so that when the pack is cut, it is cut at this card. “Faire le Pont” is thus described in Fleming and Tibbins's Grand Dictionnaire. “Action de courber quel-ques-unes des cartes et de les arranger de telle sorte que celui qui doit couper ne puisse guère couper qu'a l'endroit qu'on vent.”
