Hi all, came across this subject area of 3 card Monte and bar betchas and thought I would chime in with my recollection of Paul Daniels in the Bunco Booth performance of an effect using a long length of chain deftly persuaded into 3 loops and a larger surrounding loop.
Spectator only has to pick the loop which will successfully lock onto his / her finger to win when the large loop is pulled to one side.
They of course never do and pick the wrong one ...
Brilliant effect but I never did track down the originator of this ............Does anyone here remember it ?

Is this the chain used for the effect ?

best wishes Nic

When Fred Lowe published The Triple Circle Routine in Ganson's The Art of Close Up Magic, he said that he didn't believe it was ever in print before. It was shown to him by Jack Salvin, who may have been the originator.

Hi all just an update to say I have managed to find the material I was looking for over at Lybrary Magic ; Chris Wasshuber : click here http://www.lybrary.com/the-endless-chain......628.html

A great instruction manual with credits , history and a reference to Paul Daniels performing it on his show !

I am glad I came across this post ....

thanks Nic
