Ok fine, I'll succumb to the badgering.
Another delightful, deceptive, devious, subtle, diabolical peek appears in an effect called In the Bluff by Ramon Rooibo

There is a very practical card peek taught in action by Greg Wilson, very innocent looking.

Hey Magicfish, isn't the point of a spectator peek to preclude any notion of you potentially glimpsing the face of the selected card?

Remember fellas, as with any glimpse, context is key.
I use Fechter's incredible Fan glimpse in this way: I riffle the corner of the pavk and look away as the spectator calls stop and peeks at her selection. The deck is squared and lowered so that there is no way anyone but the spectator knows the identity of the selection.
Now I turn to a second spectator and fan the cards face up for a mental selection. This is the Aronson routine I mentioned earlier. Anyway, Fechter used this to great effect at the Forks Hotel.
For me, the beauty of this is that after the spectator peek, there is no surreptitious "peeking or glimpsing" by the performer. The card is peeked at fairly by the spectator and the pack squared. Then, in the midst of a motivated, overt, action, the performer learns the identity of the first selection.
Thankyou Eddie,
and thank you Jerry for writing it up all those years ago. It has served me well. Hopefully some of you may find uses for one or more of the great peeks listed here.
And thanks to the OP for a great thread!

Another beautiful, efficient, deceptive peek is Harry Lorayne's The Super Peek from Quantum Leaps.
The deck is pressure fanned, the selection returned into the fan and pushed home. The fan is closed and the deck tabled. The end. It's a beauty!

Ah, thanks for the clarification. The peek is less than stellar without that context, haha.

Which Aronson routine are you referring to? I went back through the thread but couldn't locate the reference.

Thanks!

Sorry you mentioned my Super Peek - I've been fooling magicians with it for a decade or three.

Is that the one that is on the 'Completing the Cut' DVD? There's a great peek that Ryan teaches on there and I think that's it. I'm not sure though.
IIRC, the 'Mr Lifto' effect is on that DVD as 'The Mayhew', and he teaches the 'Pivotal Peek' in 'The Mayhew' instructions.
I somehow was able to pick that up on vanishingmagic for $6.00, gimmicks included.
