I know Luke Jermay is not "popular" here in the Café (if you know what I mean), but I really like his method of the OOTW.

There are so many methodologies for separating reds from blacks. Unless you use a stripper deck they are mostly going to require a set up.

However the most baffling from the spectator's (and the performer's!) point of view is to use the Gilbreath principle. Don't just stick to playing cards. Explore a more interesting presentation with any dualistic parameter such as positive/negative energies in tarot or dead and alive with photos etc...

Interesting...using the Gilbreath Principle for this effect. I will have to experiment with this idea.

One final hint is to consider utilising a marked deck to your advantage in conjunction with the employment of the Gilbreath Principle. Then you will be potentially be able to create a real miracle!

Another potentially baffling approach to an O.O.T.W presentation is to use a 'one off' methodology where the spectator is offered a red/black pair each time or so they think! It all seems so fair and half way through the remainder of the cards can be cleanly shown to all be in alternating red/ black sequence. However of course a subtle force is in play prior to this.

In my obviously biased opinion the best way to "create a real miracle" is to do something like my Out Of This Universe WITH A BORROWED AND SHUFFLED (so far as the audience is concerned)DECK. Which you can also do (with a REALLY shuffled deck) with my Impromptu Out Of This World - both of these as I published/taught quite a few decades ago.

I won that bet at a different - moments ago thread re: my Stabbed In The Pack (check it out). I had bet that certain trolls would immediately surface - two of them did. I won the large $100.00 bet.

I've been doing both of Harry's versions for years.... no need to change now eh ? I've played with Ammar's, David Regal's, and Eugene Burger's ...all good but seem to always come back to the Lorayne handling.

PS: Can't wait for Jaw Droppers II Harry ! WHEN, WHEN ? ;-)

Fascinated by the idea of a large $100 bet as opposed to a normal sized $100 bet.

Believe me, it's been done. And yes, it's a great tool for OOTW.
