I have been working on the Beamsly Count, but have been having some problems. Anyone have any advice for me?

Oh stop my stomach... sigh..
krazy, in another thread Steve Beam said this: The "Beamsley Count" (so christened by Phil Willmarth) was originally published in "Magic, The Vanishing Art or How to Turn A Trick for Fun and Profit" (1979), and later "The Trapdoor" (1983). If you don't have access to any of these, the best description of the move along with updates and a truckload of material using it is in "Counter Attack" (2008).
Best,
Steve

hope this helps a little

So what does the Beamsley count do that the Elmsley doesn't?

Hello,
I just read the description in The Trapdoor and the ilustrations and the descriotions are too vague and I do need some help with que key part of the move (buckling the bottom card with the third finger)
Can anyone help me a bit with that?

I can allways do a regular Elmsley count but at least for the trick Back to Aces (the one right after in The Trapdoor) its much better, because it avoids the grip change.

In fact, you can simply do an Elmsley count with modified grip.
So much to do, so little time . . .
