Do not click and open the Link first or you will get an error, Right Click on the video link and click on Save Target As... followed by saving it to their prefered location. If this doesn't work for you, I don't know what will, I downloaded it just like he told me and it worked after I told my friend that ya'll was having problems.

Doc

To those who may be interested, my middle deal is up too.

Have you ever middle-dealt in a real game DOC? Your technique is so good that it doesn't matter for you to do a center or bottom, in my opinion. Both look equally good to me.
Once again I am stunned by your technique. Truely amazing. Work of art.

Go to the directory you saved it and THEN play it. It'll work.

Tielie why are you not reading between the lines?

I DON'T PRACTICE THIS ANY LONGER BECAUSE I NORMALLY DON'T BOTTOM NOR MIDDLE {{{{{{{{{ANYMORE}}}}}}}}} BECAUSE OF MY ABILITY TO COLD DECK.

{{{{{{{{{{ I'VE ADVANCED PAST THAT STAGE IN MY LIFE OF HOPPING THE DECK, PUTTING CARDS AT THE BOTTOM ETC. JUST TO DO THESE MOVES}}}}}}}}}}.

Cold decking is to exchange the deck on the table with an stacked one you have on your body?

Yeah I knew you dealt from the base, but have you ever dealt from the middle in a game? That question, I couldn't find the answer to.

I am missing something. 9 of hearts? What video is it in? Think I miss that vid ...

Very possibly, you may have to update your viewer. I know I did.

Is that the bottom that is in Tony Giorgio's bottom deal manuscript? Very good.

Tielie why do you keep asking me the same question when I answered it the first time. Read my post in Capital Letters and it will tell you.

I see why magicians have problems learning moves. They skip over information and it's right in their face.

Can someone answer Tielie's question for him because his reading comprehension is very bad.

Doc, you wrote:

"I know this to be true because Ive been a student of Walter Scott for over 13 years now and Im the real thing. Next to Gazzo, Im the best at this technique in the country."

In Phantoms (p. 198), Gazzo says he lost the "work" and can't show people how good he was at it. Did he eventually get it back for you to say you're the next best at this technique after him, or were you comparing yourself to Gazzo in his prime?

And thanks for your great videos ... and I'll say you look and act like a young guy, for an older one Smile

Awesome middle deals doc. The front of the deck looks great in both middle deals throughout the dealing process as well as the left fingers holding the deck and the natural position of the deal. I suppose that the side-step middle deal is the one described by Marlo, isn´t it? Marlo uses a push-off of the middle card, do you also use a push-off of the middle card or you strike it directly with the index?

The only very very small thing I noted, above all if you turn the volume down and do not follow the rithm of your words, is that there is a small delay when you deal the centre card in comparison with the dealing of the top cards. I assume that this is a consequence of using a small step together with a strike tecnique instead of a push off that speed up the action although the left fingers looks much worse with the push-off.

Best Regards

p.s. keep videos coming. They are great and one of the few sources I´ve found reaching such a perfection in these type of sleights.

Camador thanks for the reply and the compliment. You know I don't teach that's why I posted it so ya'll can visualize how it's suppose to look and then make up your own way of doing it.

I will answer your question regarding the delay. At the card table there is no rhythm that you have to abide by, this is something that magicians like to emphasize in which they can't do themselves. I can stop dealing at anytime I like, look up at the T.V., tell a joke, make a comment, take a drink of soda/water or whatever is I prefer and still continue to deal as I did in my Side Step Video.

Balducci I was comparing myself with Gazzo in his prime. Gazzo had a one on one teaching from Walter so I have to give him the respect that is due to him. To me it's not about who's first, it's just about me being able to do it too.

To be honest with you he should be better than me because I learned from the book, but it should be noted that I was around when Gazzo was demonstrating his moves and the people always told me that I was better than Gazzo and my punch hole was way smaller than his.

Darwin has my work and Walter Scott's and Darwin with those that he has shown my work to says that my work if far superior.

Note: The reason why my work is superior to Walter's is because of the advancement of today's technology compared to his time and it's getting even better.

Hey Doc,

you say you don't practice false deals anymore, because you can now cold deck. I can relate to that, since we magicians also "grow" into other routines that fit us better and therefor don't do the tricks we used to anymore.
I do have a question about that though.

I used to do some rubberband magic, but now I don't anymore. However, sometimes I just happen to be at a place without my props and I'm asked to do some magic. If there are rubberbands around, I do some tricks with them. That's the reason I still practice those tricks on occasion. I fall back on the routines I used to do, so I still need to practice those.

Of course, I occasionally fall back on something I haven't practiced for a long time, but for a magician the risk is much lower than for someone like you to fall back on something one hasn't practiced.

I figure there must be times you just can't cold deck for whatever reason. Do you fall back on the false deals when you can't cold deck, do you fall back on something else which you still do practice or don't you play at all? Or maybe I'm completely wrong in my assumption that occasions arise that you can't cold deck?

Thanks,
Peter

DOC:

You say you have passed beyond the stage in which you placed cards at the bottom, made HOPS!, and dealt from the bottom.

If you hopped the deck, I assume you don't do middle deals and never have done. But I can't know for sure by the posts you make, because on the other hand I don't think you would have become this good when you didn't use it. So you can't blame me. Never in your post you make it 100% clear.

Tiele:

He actually wrote, "I'VE ADVANCED PAST THAT STAGE IN MY LIFE OF HOPPING THE DECK, PUTTING CARDS AT THE BOTTOM, ETC.", thus listing the sleights he did, but never do any more. He doesn't hop AND he doesn't bottom deal (nor does he middle deal any more). He uses cold decking.

This, as far as my readings can figure, is quite clear from the posts he have made. It's only you who alter his writings to your your liking.

Please do not critique when you can't even read correctly!
