I am an Asian and Asians generally have smaller hands in comparison to Westerners.

I used to think poker size cards are really big and bulky and I found it extremely difficult to keep all the cards in control(well, I still can't) but as you begin to look past that stumbling block, you will begin to appreciate the effort that you have been putting in to practice with a poker size deck.

It's worth it.

When I was in my teens (a few years ago Smile ) I started with Bridge cards. Those cards were popular for magic because a lot of trick cards were for sell in that size. As I got older I switched to Poker size. I see nothing wrong with starting with Bridge size. If you become professional using Bridge cards, I bet you will be able to perform the same tricks with a Poker deck if you have to. I can do the same manipulation using either size. Go ahead and try/compare both. Do what fits you best.

Aside from magicians and a few card players, I doubt many people even know the difference.

Over the door of our new rehearsal studio/theater is a 3D emblem with a magic wand, a top hat and a rabbit on a big red heart.

This week we had a theatrical visitor who seriously asked the question, "Is that a real wand?" (How do you tell?)
