Hello Everyone,
I am looking for sources of riffle culling, that is, culling desired cards to the top/bottom of the deck using a riffle shuffle (or zarros or strip outs). I have read Jerry Sadowitz book Thanks to Zarrow, which is very nice, but I am looking for some more sources. I heard Andrew Wimhurst has some material on riffle culling, but the only item I can find of his is his dvd Card Artistry, and it doesn't have any stacking of this sort (it has plenty of other stacking stuff though).

Any suggestions?

Thank you in advance,
Rmax

Here are some suggestions you can look for. (Some are not easy to find.)

I am having some difficulty finding some of these books. Anyone know where I can get the Andrew Wimhurst book or the Karl Fulves books/notes or the Marlo magazines?

I know where to get revelations and the castle notebooks.

Andrew Wimhurst is on the Café, so you can ask him.

If the Fulves manuscripts you seek are still in print, Karl Fulves is happy to sell them directly: Karl Fulves, Box 433, Teaneck NJ 07666. Other works of his that were published in hardbound editions by L&L are all gone. Check the auctions.

The Marlo Magazines are out of print and occasionally appear on eBay or other outlets for some pretty high prices. By "high prices," I mean several hundred dollars per volume. Good luck.

Thank you Open Traveller

I have tried emailing Andrew Wimhurst, but he hasn't responded. Is his member ID simply "Andrew Wimhurst" or does he have a different title on the Café?

Also, is Riffle Shuffle Setups the same as or very similar to Riffle Shuffle Methods or Riffle Shuffle Techniques. All three are by Fulves. Anyone know?

Thank you, everyone has been very helpful.

No, Riffle Shuffle Set-ups is a different book.

I'm currious to know if there is an entire book out on culling in general. I've been practicing culls for a few weeks now (not anywhere close to useing them in preformanc) and am trying to get 2 down (force, and a method of stacking (I've been working on the million dollar card trick improptu, and need a method to get the top 3 cards in order)).

@Magicmaven: He's here as ASW. The last I checked, you could become a member of Jon Racherbaumer's site for a fee and then download every e-book he has there at no additional cost. I believe Marlo's Riffle Shuffle Systems is included as part of that.

@skillzilla: Are you ****ing kidding us?

@Demonbrn: Marlo had a method of controlling three selections to the top of the deck in two cuts. Check your Heirophant (which, by the way, is also available on Jon's site).

Try these culling techniques....although this cull uses marked cards, so no peaking is involved:

OT,
Isn't it because of Vernon that the Steven's Cull even saw the light of day?
