I'd like to comment but I find the videos too jerky, thus it's hard to have a fair opinion (or maybe it's my computer?)

Anyway, I admire your courage as we are down to two only to show videos here now.

I'll try and help the situation, it's not great but at least you'll get that up to three people

Looks good Joey, there was not a lot of finger movement and the thumb moves well!
Random question, what type of cards did uou use? I couldn't recognize the back design

Very nice. The mecanic grip is definitly more deceptive (and natural) than the Erdnase grip we see so often.

Thanks Bobby and Jean-Jacques Smile

@Bobbycash:
"Phoenix Deck". They were designed by a german magician (maybe they are even produced here in germany, but I don't know for sure) and apparently they are quite popular among german magicians. They feel like regular bikes. Nothing special really. I like the design though.

Cheers Joey,
I've read about them and they're meant to have some nice inbuilt properties. Great video as always.

I only have the standard deck. It has a subtle one-way design but no other markings. The creator sells a fully marked deck
as far as I know but I don't know anything about the system behind it.

Thanks for the kind words Smile

I like the control at the end of both clip.. After a first look it's not obvious at all!

Very convincing

Good videos Joey.

Now that you have reached a good level, don't you think you could start dealing seconds without that lame mechanics grip Smile?

About the strike method, Charlie Miller. About the push-off, there's not that much either. Hugard and Braue for instance, or my videos.

A good description of the Charlie Miller second deal can be found in Harry Riser's Secrets of an Escamoteur, pp. 29-32.

Thanks for the hint/source @AMcD and Kabbalah. Looks like the book isn't that easy to find but I'll keep my eyes open Smile
Thanks again for the help!

There are very few references about dealing seconds without the mechanic's grip. In fact, if some of you have any, it would be appreciated.

I know "Expert Card Technique", Hugard & Braue and "Ghostly Seconds" by Vynn Boyar. Maybe someone could ask on the Workers section?
