My performances of:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a3Sl74r4aKE - Boxing Match

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a3Sl74r4aKE - WOW

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D0TCp6crgf8 - Mystery Hole

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R6F05A9W8p0 - Awatenai Awatenai

Also:
Triumph - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_5cYlqxUtFA
Ambitious Card - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vAr9vtg2afw

I would like some advice for Triumph and Ambitious Card. My DL get ready's in the Ambitious Card are pretty obvious to magicians but now I learned how to do pinky count.

Thank you.

A couple of comments:
"Fife black holes": You should use a different technique for the card selection since it looks totally unnatural. There is absolutely no reason why you should pick the card up from the table, put it face down on the deck *then* reveal it unless there is 'something fishy'. I think you would be lucky just to stop the person selecting the card from turning it over on the table or pick it up and look at it. Your lift also need some work.

"Triumph": You need to work on the shuffle. It looks awkward and doesn't 'flow' very well.

As for the ambitious card I recommend Illusionist's "Crash course 2" DVD. It's an entire DVD devoted to the AC and the moves and subtleties are taught in minute detail. I especially like the very detailed instructions on the push-off double lift. A DL with no get-ready at all.

Overall it's not bad though. Keep up the good work :)

PS: The link to WOW is wrong. It points to Boxing Match.
