Here is an idea I came up with for a card transfer I have never seen before using a knuckle crack. What do you guys think?

Looks great, not only good skill, but video quality is excellent. Quite enjoyable to watch. Center deal looked very well done.

Clock excellent video. The card transfer you use is not new. We use that exact technique when we're playing heavy and have to get that card back to the deck.

Take Care

Could you use this method to get rid of the card, after you have done muck. By doing knuckl crack method to sly card into jacket.

I agree, great work, and am slightly embarrassed to admit that I can't nail the initial steal, assuming that's what you're doing... Always show the cards first!

Keep it up...

Hi Mr. Z,

I'm using a technique hat is rarely used. My right thumb pushes the card facing me (closest to me) about half an inch to the left. My left hand then acts as a lever swinging the card into palm. The card goes into palm right after I fan the cards the first time. When I fan the cards the second time, the card is already in palm.

Hope that clears any confussion, Mr. Z!

I figured it had to occur during that action, but you did it so well I wasn't sure. Didn't want to accuse ya of any funny business or anything.

That actually sounds like a bit of a variation of the standard breakoff which is done in the act of shuffling the hand. Neat.

Thanks Clock that looked cool.
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

Nice steal. You always seem to make pretty pictures.
One time, when I was young, I botched a sleight so bad, Vernon, Marlo & Miller rolled over in their graves. But I didn't see Elmsley, probably because he was behind the others.

Clock,

VERY nice....I played it a couple of times and though it looked great....

Keep up the good work !

However, I would love to see the center deal with the cards face down too.

Thanks for posting !
