Last nite Mike Ammar lectured in Fort Wayne, IN. Excellent lecture, with a lot of information and some new twists to his routines. He is a real gentleman, and answered every question, no matter the topic with great knowledge and informative advice.

I liked his bent corner finish for any 3 card monte, especially if using a verson such as Mike Skinner's, which is the one he used.

He is on to Toledo, OH next, so don't miss his lecture. Be prepared to stay awhile. His lecture was over 3 hours long. We had the best attendence for any lecture personality thus far. The longest anyone traveled to come to see Mr. Ammar was a 3 1/2 hr. drive.

All the material in his lecture is not beyond anyone's ability with the proper amount of practice. All usable material.

I saw him lecture last night at SamCon 2005 in Peabody, MA. I'd like to echo Wmhegbli's sentiments, and I'd like to add that Michael is a genuinely fantastic PERSON. Even though he's a living legend, he treats his fans like peers by taking photos and giving autograps each and every time he's asked. He even gave me a few pointers on a couple of card sleights. My night was capped off my Michael using my signed $100 in his bill to lemon routine. The great finish was that after my bill appeared in the lemon, he RESEALED the lemon and then retrieved the bill from it by cutting it open again.

I sent him a thank you note this morning.
