I was very hesitant putting this us dure to exposre. Most people know we control cards. That's why I said Card Control. I did...

1) Dropping Packets Control, the one I use the most.
2) Side-Steal to me this is like the TOP THREE CONTRLS.
3) The Pass (Didn't look good and it wasn't smoothit?

OMG, I'm so sorry. Four friggin times. I really apologize guys and ladies. While awake during the performance, I was literally half asleep when putting the links up. For instance I remember on myspace ( http://www.myspace.com/Eddini wink...wink ... lol ) all I remember was sharing two out of the 9 embedded codes from youtube for someone. I remember doing two, then I remember waking up, and was out of their mail. No, I was NOT on anything just half asleep. I need to go to my sent messages part to see if I even pushed send and how much I sent.

That aside those are the three MAIN controls I use, 40% of them time using the drops cuts to the table, and then I normally won't do the up the ladder, but just usually shuffle remaining top card staying the same with a false cut usually my old buddy the affas gaffas cut.

The next one I do is the pass, like 30% of the time. HOWEVER the ONLY way I can do it is through misdirection. If for a small group, it just takes making a statement or asking a question, they look up if ONLY for half a second and that all I need, and BAM it's done. If they are burning my hands I use two techniques.

1) Pointing Technique - I'll gesture with two cands cards in hand maybe pointing to someone all the while doing the pass.

2) Drop To Table Technique - I actually think it's called the "table pass" and I think Vernon came up with it. As you hold the cards at belly button level, and basically as you quickly (not too quickly or jerky) set the cards on the table. Like Hot Rod, as you know the bigger movement hides smaller movement. That how (I) personally do and approach my Pass work. To me James Swain, again I've just seen it on video, IS the "Pass Master"....HANDS DOWN, and I've seen quite a few people on video do it. I have is volume 2 (Miracles With Card...I got the book too) where he teaches it good, using the trapdoor analogy, and Derek Dingles told him to tape two seperate halves of the deck, and practice it LITERALLY 1,000 times a day. Jay Sankey is good too teaching it too in his Sankey-Tized vids. To me how you know you have a PERFECTO PASS is when it's done face up, and without, even a flicker or glimmer of light the face-up card simply without cover changes as in James Swain trick "Vanshing Aces". Others I remember seeing (that alone tells me they're good) is Jamy Swiss, Peter Duffie, Jay Sankey, and David Regal's "Spread Pass". To me the ABSOLUTELY BEST 3 CARD CONTROLS are 1) The Pass ONLY if perfected as I wrote above, and it being a tie between the Side-Steal / Convincing Control. IMHO if you can master those 3 controls you are GOLDEN. Thanks, Ed...Ed, Ed who, Why (Eddini) of course HaHaHa 0_-, C.H.
