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 quelques-unes des cartes, et de les arranger de telle sorte que celui qui doit couper ne puisse guère couper quʹa lʹendroit quʹon vent.”
