I love dai vernon's twisting the aces, and I practice the trick again and again in a few weeks. then I decide to show it to my friend... everything went well, until I came to the end of the third phase, that is flip over the third ace face down again. but unfortunately I did a little flash, and my friend caught something about the aces (you know what I mean). she looked very happy that I "show" her something. but fortunately, it's the perfect position for doing elmsley count. she said "i've seen the card!" then I did elmsley count, showing all the cards facing down... she screamed! then I did elmsley count once more, the last ace turned face up, and she couldn't say anything

just a little experience with a trick that I think I'd enough practice on it

It's little accidents and recoveries like that that really help build your reputation as a wonder worker. Congrats!

Yup when you know enough sleights you can apply them to rescue yourself when somebody flashes sumthing. For example a KM move when someone notices a double lift etc.

Well done!!

I'll never forget doing the linking rings out on the street. I had about 50 people or so gathered. Then I heard a tiny but very loud voice...

"He's cheating us!"

I looked down and there was a little boy standing directly BELOW me! I hadn't even seen him walk up! I told him, "I'm not cheating, that's how the ring is supposed to be". He just said "Oh" and I shooed him back to his parents.

What separates the pros from the amateurs is how they can get out of a bad situation. Why I love Harry Lorayanne. Man is the best I've ever seen recovering from a flub, wish I had half his talent. Flashes and mistakes are going to happen in magic, it can't be avoided, knowing how to recover is what distinguishes the artist.

Actualy, what seperates pros from amateurs is getting paid. LOL, sorry, couldn't help myself.

Flashes will always happen. The goal is to reduce them as much as possible through practice and repetition, and learn ways to get out of them when they do occur.

What happens more often to me now that I'm older is dropping the object. "Watch closely as I place the coin in my hand... and drop it on the floor... Hey, wasn't there supposed to be carpet in here? Sir, just pretend there is carpet and you didn't hear the coin fall... See? It vanished."

Heheeh good 1 rik.. also I like your ring story.. it proves that people are all thinking different things.i like that medaille routine from Osterlind bc of that reason. The spectator sees someting completely different then the audience.

This is the beauty of what we all practice for IMO. We practice and practice and learn different approaches/theories and it's our knowledge and practice that save and entertain all. Bravo!

I remember my first (gladly still the only one when performing live) mistake. It was card trick and I was performing riffle pass, I still cant understand what went wrong anyway I messed up Smile Gladly I came out also via smooth talking and turned everything the way I wanted...so instantly audience thought that it`s the way it suppoused to be Smile
