Women are lucky...they also have the underside of their long nails to use.

So thatís why a couple of my young buck friends are losing all the time playing strip poker with this beautiful young girl. HmmmÖ I think Iíll keep that to myself and let them keep losing to her. They will never figure it out on their own. Smile

May be a good way to catch the dealer's hole card in BJ if they come in high.

If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

The best shiner, in my view, is their eyes.

Everybody knows you buy the "real work" from Joe's Real Work, Magic, and Vent Puppet Supply Shop.

But seriously, since the very beginnings of this forum, posters have referenced some specific bit of work, but then gone on to note that it wasn't appropriate to post the details.
No big deal ... and certainly nothing wrong with being discrete when called for.

But.... why talk about it at all? Or even acknowledge the subject exists?

Because the author needs the money?

I think Mr. Bones addressed the comment very nicely. I second the motion.

No. I tripped over a whiskey bottle and then posted my comment when I could crawl upright.

No. I am not a cop or own a badge. But it was just honest curiosity that made me post in such a very public forum the question...why would you talk about these things when Law Enforcement is reading your words? That's the part I don't understand.... I don't need to know and (at this point) could care less. No need to reply. Thanks for your replies though.

I had a request to make a shiner from a nickel.
After doing some research I came to the conclusion that filing and sanding it down by hand would just be too much work and not cost effective.
The most common method is to mount the nickel in a lathe and then with files and sand paper and then polishing paper and polishing compounds you could create a concave mirror surface on one side of the nickel. Unfortunately I do not own a lathe.

The start of his thread was good but the answers were vague.
Isn't it just better that we all brain storm and reverse engineer what could actually work?

He showed me one technique where you could look directly at your opponent's face as you dealt the cards and still get every card off the top. Absolutely brilliant!!!

Now this sounds like real work. Do we have any wild guesses on how this could be done if we were to replicate this shiner and where it would be located?

The first issue is his eyes are looking at his face.
Obviously there must be something by the opponent that is giving you the glim for every card.

I doubt you'll get many answers to your question. Silverking explained why in his first response here: "The reason for this lack of information has been talked about here in the Gambling Spot before, and it's related to the fact that some of the glims in use today, and some of the methods involved are still pretty advanced...still making money, and thus not written about or discussed in detail by those in the know.

There are a few people around here with enough knowledge to help you. Unfortunately for us, they wouldn't dream of posting this information on a public forums, due to the fact that they either make money with these techniques, or know the people who do.
Nevertheless, you should read carefully what Cag, AMcD, Doc & Co. write. By reading between the lines and doing some deducing of your own you're able to learn a lot this way, and what you read will whet your appetite for the "real stuff" they sometimes hint at.

The purpose of my post was to stimulate discussion.
I'll toss out some ideas to get the conversation started.

Putting something like a sticker on an opponent for some kind of convention logo they are participating in that is reflective.
Giving a gift of a watch where a reflection might be caught off of the clasps rectangular edge.
Having one contact lens with super magnification so you can catch a glim off of a black button your opponent is wearing.

One can do the opposite. ie Wear mirror sunglasses to flash your hand; except you don't - You use a torn corner. Do you see?

Ive been working for years on making chrome-plated hawaiian shirts popular but no one seems to be picking up on the trend. hate to drop the real work in a public forum but if anyone can introduce a glim into the world of fashion its you guys

I was just thinking are shiners any use for blind bets?

In Three Card Brag it would be very useful to know what cards one has been dealt before one apparently looks.
