That is Jeff Sheridan. He has a series of DVDs out that teaches all of this.

See his three DVD set "The Sheridan Course in Card Manipulation" found at most magic dealers including Penguin Magic: http://www.penguinmagic.com/p/2131

Or maybe just try Volume 2 of his 4 DVD set "Genius at Work" (although the entire set is well worth having and studying). Again available via Penguin Magic: http://www.penguinmagic.com/p/671

The DVDs are often available on the second hand market.

Thanks.

Please also advice how do I check if I am practicing right. For example, I can easily vanish a card using back palm but sometimes (1 time out of 5 times) a tiny bit of card is visible above the pinky.

Please also advice how to improve speed. As I increase speed, the accuracy is decreased. Is it just a matter of practice?

Thanks for your time and help.

Regards
Anatole

The "tiny bit of card... visible above the pinky" is normal, as Lewis Ganson pointed out in his book _Card Magic by Manipulation_ (which itself was excerpted from Ganson's larger book _Routined Manipulations Finale_). The solution, as Ganson points out, is to keep the hand in motion during the production until a card or fan is produced, and then the single card or the fan can be used to c---r the "tiny bit of card is visible above the pinky."

If you are on facebook, I invite you to apply to join the closed group
Routined Manipulations
where you might be able to get additional advice from the nearly 300 members who contribute to the discussions there. (It's a closed group, but since you are already approved for membership here on The Magic Café, your application should be approved with no problem.
