QuoteMeaning 'Inbetween Move' in German, Zwischenzug comes from Chess, where it refers to having an intended move, performing an additional move, then completing the intended move afterwards. In the context of pen spinning, a Zwischenzug hybrid is a sequential or combinational hybrid that starts with an interruptible intended trick, interrupts into an intermediate trick, then continues to complete the second half of the intended trick. Practically a Zwischenzug hybrid starts and ends in the same slots as the intended trick, while adding thoughtful complexity. The rules for a Zwischenzug hybrid are: It must consists of two tricks or hybrids, and one of them must be interruptible. e.g. a Half Tap is not interruptible Half or close to half of an intended trick is to be performed, then interrupted with the intermediate trick, then lastly the second half of the intended trick is to be performed after the intermediate trick is finished.It may be annotated 'zwz' to highlight its use in notation.The benefit of Zwischenzug hybrids is their use in connecting tricks, where the goal is to find some connecting method between two links that start and end in different slots. A single trick e.g. sonic 12-34 could be used to transition, but it lacks depth, while a Zwischenzug hybrid offers a way to accomplish the original goal while adding an extra layer of complexity without much need for experimentation.
