Why is my comment gone? I'm not allowed to doubt of a "freaking deceptive" Zarrow?

Never seen one in my life! Prove me I'm wrong.

I have seen many people deceived with a Z but none of them was named Arnold as I recall.

Hahaha. Sure, it depends the knowledge of the guys around the table and... the procedures in use for the shuffling procedure. But usually Z-shuffles are far from being deceptive if you pay attention.

BTW tommy, we soon can't play Poker anymore in the pubs! WTF?

We have an interest in a bar but we never did have a game there. I don't know the rules really. I mean I am just a silent partner in that joint. I have not heard anything. I did notice there is quite a few poker tables for sale on ebay today.

I'm quite optimistic about the project, but I once again agree with your assessment about the state of the zarrow Arnold.
Here's to hoping Steve fools you Smile

Anybody can be fooled, me first. And I like been fooled.

But the Zarrow? Nah. It's just the mechanics of the move. I've seen good ones, for instance by the Magician Christian Chelman, and a couple of others. But it's always in a Magic contexts and it wouldn't go with Gambling procedures. At least the one I know.

Anyway, just my opinion.

I totally agree with you Arnold. Christian Chelman's Zarrow is beautiful:)

I thought I might bump this with some more news. Looks like Dan & Dave will be releasing the project which they announced would be out quite soon (on there most recent coffee with dan & dave, they are working on a trailer atm). However, Steve Reynolds has just been (maybe out by now) from hospital. Hope he gets well soon

I recently spent a few hours with Steve Reynolds (who is feeling much better thank goodness) at this years ('14) GGG convention and can attest that his work on the Zarrow is really something special. I have the Gary Plants monograph, which I really like. However, Gary's choice of cover just isn't for me. Steve Reynolds approaches the shuffle from another angle that allows (in my view) a more natural grip, square up and 360 degrees of cover, all without any excess coziness.

If you ever get a chance to see Steve lecture, or session with him, you'll find that the quality of his work is exceeded only by his kindness in sharing and explaining it.

I want to add that Steve's work on the Zarrow is great, and I watched him teach people how to do it within a workshop, step by step. He has a different take that Gary Plants, who also has excellent work on the shuffle, and if you plan to use this shuffle, I really think you need to get as much material as you can.

Steve's work is great. He's a nice guy as well. So is Gary. Do yourself a favor, get them both, and learn all you can learn. It's a great tool, and there's no reason to not avail yourself of all the information that you can. You'll wind up with a preference, I am sure, but you need to know your choices as well.

Are there any news about Steve's DVD?
I read in another post (from Jason England) that release date would be "later this year"...

BigSmile,

The video has been completely edited and we are having the DVD authored very soon. We could have been ready a few months ago but when Gary Plants released his Zarrow DVD we decided to wait a bit. That was so we didn't create any confusion in the marketplace and also because Gary is a friend of ours and we wanted his DVD to have the spotlight it deserves.

If you haven't already bought Gary's DVD, you should - it is excellent.

Hi Jason!
And thanks for your fast answer.

I already have ordered Gary's DVD (it did not arrive yet) but was curious about your and Steve's project.

All the best from Germany,
Carsten

I was fortunate enough to actually go and see Steve for a couple of hours in New Orleans a week or so ago. (He also has a great deal of knowledge of Marlo and Bro Hamman)
IMO it is the work on the zarrow shuffle. He knows how to teach it and it looks more similar to the style of shuffle that we are used to seeing. It will take a while for me to get used to the method of doing it, but I'll keep working.
I don't have any info on the release date, but I do when it is available it will be worth it.

Thanks ..I attended a lecture by Steve a few years as well and he did his Zarrow. I agree he is excellent and I never forgotten how good it was. Can't wait for the DVD.

Certainly anyone who was jazzed about getting Gary's take on the Zarrow shuffle has purchased his DVD.
Please release Steve's DVD.
