Vernon's routine in Stars of Magic is seminal.

I could never do that darned shuffle convincingly. Years ago I started doing it with a Zarrow. I have also done the slop shuffle variant. Truth be told the slop shuffle version seems to work quite well for me.

Magicians yawn when you start a slop shuffle. For the yawns we have one more technique.

Jay Ose is often credited with he slop shuffle. However I have read in the Jimmy Grippo book that Jimmy Grippo showed it to Jay Ose and Jay Ose made quite a reputation with it.

I hope this helps.

I was minimally concerned about how badly you fooled me...but seeing the post by Mr. Lorayne I feel wonderful about it.

I think I just peed my pants a little... Smile

That was completely baffling. It's certainly not as hard to fool me, I am sure, as it is to fool Mr. Harry Lorayne, but it's such a nice thing when it happens. And funny, too! "Buck twins, eat your heart out"... lol!

I'm tempted to go back and watch it again, but I kind of don't want to at the same time... You know what I mean?

Great job, of course!

In June 1983 issue of "Apocalypse", Bob Hirsch has a Gaffed Deck version of Triumph using different gaff from this version, namely 'Killer Triumph'.

The editor of the magazine (I guess it was Mr. Harry Lorayne) mentions that there has been a version in which gaff cards (other than this version) were used.

However your handling is very nice to cover the use of the gaff.

Very nice version.

P.S.

It seems Mr. Harry Lorayne forgot that he mentioned that.

This was incorrect. It should be :

P.S.

There has been a similar version but you can spread all the cards face up and the selection appears face down.

I searched my notes and found almost same tricks in principle as this trick.

Al Koran's version using same gaf which was published in April 1949 issue of "Wizard".
Almost same time, U.F.Grant marketed an similar trick (in principle) as 'Cheek To Cheek'.
Jean Hugard and Fred Braue wrote a similar but 3 cards revelation in their "Miralce Method With Prepared Cards". (Publish date escaped).
Later in July 1964 issue of "Genii", Al Koran published a variation with Glenn Gravatt's handling.

I must note the OP'S handling is never included in the forerunners. It is very strong to deceive magicians.

Kato-san,

I use no gaffs. This is done from a borrowed deck, in use.


Harry,

I'm pleased beyond measure you liked it.

Great job Kent! Gaffs were my first thought as well.

It's great you can do this with a normal deck.
Then the effect would be stronger if you spread the deck face up in the beginning to impress the deck is normal.

Sorry for the former post. I now know your method. I know the reason you can't spread the deck face up in the beginning.

I believe it is different from the versions I listed above.
