A card press is very useful if you want to do a perfect faro shuffle. Makes your cards flat/level.

In Between ("8 Effects and a Sleight" book by Michael Kociolek, 2012)

A card that's only in the spectator's mind appears sandwiched between two lost selections that were used to create that thought of card.

Denis Behr is the only one I know who could manage 8 perfect table faros in under a minute. Incredible.

Anyway...the link to Denis' 8 perfect table faros did not work for me so in case this happened to anyone else, here is a direct link to YouTube for his video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I8AEfRu-RSg

In case anyone is interested in learning the useful table faro: https://store.theory11.com/products/tabl......england#

In my opinion, it's one of the best instructions for the move out there.

There are many tricks, and many effects, but rarely a Grand Effect. There are many entertainers, but few real magicians. Many technicians, but few artists who use their art to explore their vision. - Derren Brown, Absolute Magic

Wow a really nice long list of faros, thanks Kjellstrom! I used to avoid faro magic effects like the plague then I realized that I was using cheap decks that were just impossible to faro! After using bikes I realized that it is not so difficult after all Smile now I love them and yes I also find them addictive Smile

Anti Faro

Dani DaOrtiz and Christian Engblom DVD:
!Que Raro! that teaches the Anti-Faro.

In the Anti-Faro you spring the cards from hand to hand from a very short distance
and every other card jogs slightly. This allows you to strip out the jogged cards, and essentially reverses the action of a Faro Shuffle.

Hello Smile wow I didn.t realized that here is included my POETRY IN FARO :O. THANKS Smile

Well, Poetry in faro is my lecture notes ebook it,s over 70 80 pages.

Those who know me know I'm a faro crazy , I ve been most of my time as a magician studying and working on the faro, I have studied lot of names , such as Vernon, Marlo, Gertner, Swinford, Elmsley,Diaconnis, Riser, Otero, and some others some that are famous but some that arent that famous.

Poetry in faro is full of some of the best tricks I have found, work and even developed with the faro shuffle, and there are lot of combination of principles with the faro , like Finnels Free cut, Stay stack, and some more, then I have published my "Guide deck" study wich I believe is one of my best colaborations to the faro literature Smile.

I put tips, ideas, and a lot of information about the faro and one of the things I believe that is nice about my booklet is that I have tried to make it FUNNY and entertaining to read Smile

Now the bad news for now its only available in spanish so if someone know spanish just contact me and I will tell you how you can get it Smile , but its in mi plans to translate it into english. That would be awesome Smile

The good news is that Poetry in faro is almost 4 years old, and I continued my journey and I have developed some tricks ideas and even principles and a study on the critic points of the faro, and how to work on them, today I can do 8 perfect faros totally blindfolded by the hands of a spectator (of course that is uselees but the ability to make the faro while you are talking and looking the spectators into the eyes that is kinda nice Smile and right now I'm planning to put all my work on a big book almost 300 pages of FARO work soo my friends keep in touch! Smile

cya!!!

I had a faro routine in Pabular Vol. 8 No. 10 (May 1985) called Quaternity. I expanded on the basic idea in several more interesting directions although I never published any of them.
