Note he is standing up and we are looking down at the deck. Sitting down in a game and looking across the table, or from the sides while sitting, would not be so forgiving. It is okay to learn something like this for demonstation purposes. Takes a lot of work to come up with a fair center deal for demos. The reason it survives to this day is because it was heavily promoted by Dai Vernon. Although I greatly respect Vernon for his advancement of close-up magic and his great contributions in this regard, he was not a hustler nor was he able to get the money himself. He was a magician's magician if you will, which is great. But he definitely was not an expert on real world gambling methods. He tried to learn as much about gamblers' sleight of hand "moves" as he could because in his day those moves were much better than the moves that magicians were using. There are much better, simpler, safer and more deceptive methods to get the money in a game than the center deal. The Kennedy Center deal is really more of a demonstration move rather than a "get the money" move. If someone is looking for a challenging demonstration move, I'm sure the Kennedy Center Deal will fit the bill. [/quote]
