When you guys complete a cut or a flourish, what do you do?

I've seen many guys rub their fingers together. Some guys will do a deck flip.

What do you do?

I square the deck and do another one.

I usually dribble the cards or waterfall them.

But that can get annoying for spectators I believe.

I will usually spring the cards in the spectators faces and walk away.

Well, I suggest you routine card manipulations together into a beautiful segment, so then you wouldnt have to worry about this question.


Who would do just one flourish or cut anyways?

I just do a couple cuts at first and end with a one handed shuffle then I pause for a second to let the effect set in then do a trick.

Depends what flourish I just finished.
Some look good with differnt things after, some are in the wrong position to do certain things so you do another...
It all depends.

Depending opon the situation, I'll do a variety of things. One thing I've wanted to try was sign the deck and give it to the "audience". I did'nt really know if this would make people think I had a huge ego, which is not what I go for.
I like cards.

I usually square up the deck and place it on the table, or if there is no table I square it up and give it a swing cuttish spin.
Stick to the classics,

Hold the deck in mechanics grip and take a bow.

ROFLMAO (I usualy don't drop to this internet geek level, but what the heck)

answer:
I do another one. XCM moves (or flourishes) done after each other should flow naturaly without a "stop" "start", if they don't flow naturaly you shud insert a kind of "transition".

if I ever just do ONE move, I take a bow. Becasue it has to be a pretty sweet move if I'm only gonna do one and wait for reactions...

But to answer the question like I know you intened it:
I do a quick deck square, if the move itself dosn't square up the deck.
