That is a really tough question.

I still haven’t gone through the whole book yet, so I’m not really ready to answer that question.

But I do know that I would pick all one handed cuts, just out of preference.

A quick plug and for those who might not have “the Bible”

He’s referring to Jerry Cestkowski’s Encyclopedia of Playing Card Flourishes, available at http://www.flourishman.com

It’s $75 plus shipping, and it’s a really great book.

And worth every penny. Thanks. I should have named the book.

Spring (and its variations)
Giant fans (and its variations)
Card juggling (can't do it)
One-hand shuffle
Card throwing

I like just about everything in his book except for the two-hand cuts and deck twirls.

For the book, 5 of the most memorable moves that struck me were

-Deck Twirls & Spins
-Armspreads
-L-Cuts (Interpolations and Displays)
-Aerial Cut (just to brag that you can do it Smile )

Oh snap, I just realised I can't count. I only put 4... should really stop doing all these intravenous drugs!!

The Overhead Spring is a must as well. But you already knew that Smile

I'd pick the L cut section if I could do them, I didn't have much intrest in them before but I get more and more into one handed cuts, and I think the interpolation ones or whatever they are called (Yeah, told you I havent studied the chapters a lot. Smile.) look very nice.

But for now of stuff that I can DO.

Charlier. (Well duh, this is the most useful cut existing...)

One handed revolution (Other name in the bible though, but the handling is a little different too.)

Spring. (Impresses lay people a lot and is very easy to do.)

Helicopter Throw cut. (Wonderful aerial cut, my favourite.)

Giant fan. (Looks great, everyone love it.)


That's it. ^^

I like some of the tips in the Companion DVD. Especially the one about overpowdering the deck.
