Ah. Finally a cobra variation (groans) that I think I might have invented. That I haven't seen/heard De'vo do. (Please correct me if I'm wrong.) The packet is held, ready for cobra cut. A coin in placed on top of packet. Cobra cut is done while coin stays on top packet. Top packet is flipped out w/ coin on top; both are caught by cobra mouth. I don't see any real reason for performing this, but it does help in practice, to steady your hand.

That could be a pretty good practice drill to steady your hand. Nice thinking, I haven’t heard this before.

Coin Cobra is old news. Not the way you mention though. When I read the subject line I figured you were doing the cobra with just coins. We talked about that on the handlordz forum, but it was just done with coins and not the deck.

You should call it the Bling Cobra… lol. Paint the coin red and the cobra will have a tongue.

I personally think it's great, and it's probably the only cobra variation that De'vo HASN'T done!! Hey Firedice, I'm getting the idea that you're liking that carrot!! Smile Smile Smile
