But:

Move your thumb.

Thanx Jeff!

With this deal though, you are not supposed to move your thumb at all.

Indeed very nice, It would be great if we could see you sailing the card, but anyway it was really good and the brief was minimum,

This is the frozen
thumb second, an expostulates Martin Nash. I thought
it looked good. it is possible to do with 50% less brief, just practice
every morning for one hour. In a couple years you will see a great improvement.
Forget the sail and up tempo a half beat. Much time spent, good work.

This belongs in another thread, but I thought I'd put it here for the gambling sleights enthusiasts to see it.

I have written a tutorial based on Walter Scott’s strike second deal in an eBook form. The eBook is geared towards beginners and it is a detailed explanation of this type of second dealing.

The eBook is 17 pages long with clear instructions accompanied by high quality coloured photos. I cover the basics of the fine brief and I've included several practice drills to improve your overall progress in learning the deal.

Visit my webpage at http://www.gamblingsleights.com where you will find information on how to order the eBook online. The eBook is immediately downloadable from the website.

If you have any queries please PM me or email me at: yiannis@gamblingsleights.com


Thanks!

Looks cool Yiannis and its great to see some of your work. My inexpert advice might be hold the deck parallel to the table top, when using it rather than demonstrating it to the camera. Which you probably do in any event, so I don’t why I mentioned it, other than I can’t think of what else to say. Smile
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

I agree with Tommy but that was excellent, keep up the good work. I'm proud of you.

Just A Note: If you're going to use your video as a reference to your notes then video tape the sail but technically speaking in a game, it's not necessary,

Again excellent work.


Respectfully,

Doc

P.S. Yiannis what I would like to see if you ever get the time is to video tape yourself flashing cards and remembering them in and out of order or whatever you do best; I just wanna see it done.

Doc,

thank you very much for your comments. I'll make a video sailing the cards as suggested in a few days.

As far as the memory technique goes, I'm currenty working on a detailed guide about the memory system I use using the techniques of Dominic o'Brien and Ben Pridmore. This system is exclusive to card handlers and very easy to learn. I'll make the video with the release of my notes.

That's the kind of stuff I'd be ready to buy.
