I don't know, I just feel that it looks like doing something. Like too much motion.

(and yes I present it as a sucker effect. I know that may be controversial)

Thank you for sharing this. I see two things that would make it better.

1. Eliminate the prolonged cover. This would allow the people to think that you are already doing something behind your hand for that length of time. The cover should be part of a movement...like waving your hand over the card.

2. Eliminate the shaking of the deck. Again, even if the people does not know the method behind it...they will assume the dirty deed is done behind it. It lessens the "magic" in some way.

Hope that helps!

1) Why do you push the facing card forward?
2) Why do you shake?
3) No need for the finger ring thingie at the end of the video.

This last one is a generational thing, which he's using as part of the sucker move.
All about borrowed coins.

I would eliminate the shaking thing. Your audience wil think you "did something".

It has a very mechanical feel to it.
Reminds me of breakdancing. You know, that robot thing.

Better than I can do. Good job. The more you do it the more natural it will be.
