Ok, getting back on track...

I do love a nice bit of ace cutting, and, if Andy is to be believed (ordinary deck, no crimps, no slicks etc etc), I frankly have no idea how the hell this is done! It does look brilliant though. Possibly the best I've seen. Thoughts?

I saw this when it was video when he first put it up and have been loosing sleep ever since! I'm certainly no expert on Ace cutting routines but the use of a breather doesn't seem to fit!

The guy does a hellava job negating every method I know of!

How does the use of a breather not seem to fit?

Try it out. Make a breather crimp on 4 cards, shuffle the deck, cut to the 4 cards - piece of cake.

I'm neglecting to see any discrepancy that would indicate it's anything but a crimp of some sort.

I guess maybe the discrepancy is his claim that it's impromptu and doesn't use any crimps, but come on guys, you're smarter than that.

Come on pals, many ways to do that! Breathers is possibly the easiest one.

You know guys, there are many possibilities to put a breather, you can use breathers on the fly for instance. Don't always think about the ugly version you can watch in Vernon's vids, there are very nice methods...

If you want, I can show you videos with absolutely invisible breathers (but I won't teach it).

I think we ought not talk openly about how a magic trick is done.

Ahhhh man, I'm feeling pretty embarrassed at the moment! I reckon this shows I'm no expert at crimpage either! Back to the books for me!

Is there anywhere in print or DVD that you can direct us to learn how to put in a breather on the fly in front of the spectators?

Nothing I'm aware of Smile. Among the ones I use some have been grabbed "live" (true play) and one has been devised by myself.

If I remember well, some old magic books have a few pages on slick cards, breather and so on though. Say before 1960 Smile.

Arnold,
For those of us who are only half smart (at best!), you mean you saw someone use it in a game or while performing effects and you deducted the method? If so, was it pretty obvious, or did you just get lucky and catch a flash?
Inquiring minds want to know!

Well if that's what Armold means then Arnold is dreaming. Smile

I agree with Tommy here. And for Andy's sake, if you think you have it, don't tip it.

I disagree. The performer is claiming it's totally impromptu and is done with an entirely ordinary deck. In my opinion, by having that exaggerated disclaimer, it makes it acceptable to scrutinize what's really going on - he's basically asking for it. If he hadn't made that disclaimer, I wouldn't have bothered to say anything.

I guess a good analogy here is a video of someone walking on thin air and claiming it's gimmick-less and 100% impromptu - of course people are going to call shenanigans.

Needless to say, it was a fantastic performance.
