Hello everybody,

I recently became aware that using only a marked card allows me to do my tricks using a key card in better conditions. I would like to go further on this concept. Would you have references to bones routines using only a marked map?

Thanks all,
Minus

Minus,

I like this idea. If you utilize a double backer/marked card I like the possibilities. I look forward to hearing what develops.

I suggest looking into Martin Nash´s "Infinity & Beyond".
Instead of a marked card he uses a breather crimp and the effects on the dvd are very strong.

I recall falling in love with the idea of repositioning a marked crimped card so it's adjacent to the selection, which meant I wouldn't have to hold breaks and could delay the control. Super deceptive. I'm sure Martin Nash has a bunch of suggestions along those lines (and some more sophisticated) in the video you mention. In "Dead Reckoning," John Bannon floats a keycard half the deck away from the selection.

Ryan Schlutz has many tricks with one marked card.

Wouldn't a single crimp card or short card be more helpful? Not only does it do the same as a key card, you can also find it without having to look at the deck

Sometimes Yes, sometimes no.
