If it's good enough for the likes of Micheal Ammar that way then it's good enough for me too....As I mentioned it's not really something I would do in a proper working situation as there are much better suited effects but it's a nice effect for informal situations.

I won't say anything about the prediction effect because I haven't studied it, but I will say don't discount this effect in real world situations. I wouldn't use it as an opener, but as a middle or a closer OTW is very very strong - especially if you set the deck in stages during the course of two or three other effects.

I agree that it is great if you can set it up over the course of previous effects, but I find it somewhat hard to believe that OOTW can be anything but a closer. What can really follow the spectator shuffling and then dealing the red and black cards perfectly into two piles? Just my opinion Smile

No doubt it's a great effect but in the working situations I usually find myself in it's just not practical as I mainly work in loud environments with limited table space.
When I work I only include one card routine in my set's and I have routines that work very well for me so it's very unlikely that I would change them especially for tables, these days I tend to be more interested in honing these effects I may even add to them from time to time but I most definitely couldn't see me replacing them for OTW as good as it is.

Yes-OOTW requires specific conditions for it to get the best reactions, and whatever works for you in your situation is obviously what you should perform.

What a timely conversation. I enjoyed reading through this and have quite a bit of research ahead of me!
