Question for those of you who perform this. In Bill Tarr's explanation in Now You See It Now You Don't, entitled Five Card Trick (pg. 46), when Bill takes the cards one at a time, he takes them BEHIND the right hand. I learned it taking cards in FRONT of the right hand. Obviously if taking the cards behind the right hand, the front face card will not change. Taking the cards in front of the right hand the front face card changes. IMO, that's a convincer you're taking single cards, but I'm not sure if that's necessary. Taking cards behind the right hand makes it much easier to hide "the move", but that may just be unnecessary; I think my move looks just fine moving the cards in front.

What do you guys think? What's your experience?

THANKS for your insights and help!

My favorite version so far is this version by Pop Haydn: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LuRd957z30I

It looks so fair, and it's so much fun to watch. I wonder if he's offering this for sale?

Barry, I like Pop's version also. I'm actually working on my own handling of Ramsay's / Galloway's version using a hat with a kicker ending.

Yes, the DVD of my 6 Card Trick is $20, but the downloadable video is only $10.

I've decided to take the cards in front showing the faces. Managed to figure out a Four Ace kicker ending.

Will show the Magic Club next week.

Thanks.

My upcoming new book will contain an effect titled Easier Six-Card Royal - it's a 6-card repeat ending with a royal flush - eliminating all ECs. It's my take-off of a Doug Edwards routine that I wrote up in DEPAW.

I am as well. Harry's produced much for magic and I'm sure he has much more to give.

I posted a Perverse Six Card Repeat to the Perverse Magic thread of the Genii Forum on July 1, 2012 based upon Senator Crandall's and Roy Benson's ideas for this wonderful effect.

Just be sure I have your email address (send it to my "earthlink" address listed under this post), if you're not already on that list - so that you can be notified when (and if) it's available. Best - HL.

I did the Effect for the Magic Club last night and they liked it quite a bit. I had some audience participation and the Four Ace kicker surprised EVERYONE!

I've seen Pop Haydn routine when he lectured at our ring, and it's quite funny.
