Hehe. I liked the subtleties. Are they published?

Hideo San,

You may want to private message Kent directly, rather than "revealing", even accidently, the method he's using.

I think the routine looks GREAT Kent. I saw this at, where else- GGG last year (a fantastic convention. Contact Kent for more info!) and think you've added some killer touches to it. Bravo!

For those wondering though- you CAN show the cards front and back, it CAN be a borrowed deck, and everything IS examinable at the end.

Glenn Bishop,

Thanks for the insight on the slop shuffle.

Did you watch the routine, Glenn?

I hope this helps.


I have never heard Jay Ose credited with the Slop Shuffle, though I don't doubt he used it. The Slop Shuffle was Sid Lorraine's creation.

Kent's handling here (which is different from that or other standard handlings) is quite nice.

Kent, you are right. The aces are superfluous. This handling is the best you've come up with so far. Most would have been satisfied with what you were doing last year at the G3.

Good job,

Dave

Uh, wow. Glad I could express that in writing since my jaw is still on the floor.

Davester,

As usual I was making stuff too complex. I think it was some guy named Nelson who talked me into continuing to work on the concept . . .

Thanks Dave,

Very nicely done. I admire the nice little touches and clean handling of the deck throughout the routine - and the routine was fantastic!

That looked great; has to be the fairest looking routine I've ever seen.

Just to clarify. I didn't spit out some ancient pasteboard wisdom that I'd picked up from underground masters. I said, "Please don't make me sit through this %$%@ again! Stop inflicting this @%#& on your wife and your other friends!".

I guess you interpreted that to mean you should continue working on it. I'm glad you did but my bitterness and cynicism had nothing to do with the quality of your creation. Now, a real piece of advice, just like the Cups, call this one done before your fiddle it to mediocrity Smile

It's a wrap kiddo. The simplicity of effect is all Vernon's. It is a wonderful effect. I hope to do this version, extant, for a very long time.

T'anks kid.

So he fooled you: there were two midgets and you only noticed one... and you said nothing about the smart use of the currency sorting out machine.

Congratulations Kent, it fools me and I looked at it several times.

Dang! I knew I shouldn't have looked at it again! (and again. And again. And again... a few more times). Now I think I have an idea how you did it. Which is way worse than knowing how it's done, or having no idea how it's done.

All I'll say is, if you're doing what I think you're doing, it's a) really frickin' smooth, and b) pretty ballsy in a couple of spots! Not that there's anything to see, obviously...

Still mind-blown,
Luigi
