It's very old.
No one knows who invented it.

Re: The Pass

There are so many great ways to use the Pass that I can't count them.
At the top of the list is as a card control.
I've also noticed that the people who most often criticize the Pass are the ones who can't do it well.

Bob, I see a lot of mixing by pulling the halves apart and then reassembling them by "kissing" the halves (what you call the drawbridge move), however it doesn't appear to serve the same purpose.
