The Broken Matzoh

Here's my friend Marc at last night's Passover Seder.

The Haggadah said to break the middle matzoh, of three matzohs, in half and remove it.

That becomes the afikomen.

The Haggadah then said to raise the three matzohs.

My question: If you break the middle matzoh in half and remove it from the plate, aren't you then raising 2 1/2 matzohs instead of three?
