A freind told me that he thinks the cull is you spread threw the deck you find the first card you would like to cull take that whole right hand packet and injog it.Then you look for the other cards and injog each card the you do some move I'm not sure but is that along the lines of how it works?
Thanks A lot

The sleight you explain sounds like an Arthur Buckley sequence from Card Control (p. 12). However, it is most definitely not Marlo's prayer cull, which is, basically, a finessed version of the Hofzinser card pass. I believe it was the first method in print that allowed for multiple card culling using the Hofzinser move.

The cull is explained in fair detail during the explanation of the Bonus card routine on the Up In Smoke DVD.

I highly recommend that every cardician learn to cull cards below the spread. It is an unbelievably useful tool!

Hi Paul

Speaking of culls... I saw you at a WorkShop in St Jo a few years ago. One night in the lobby you showed a face up deck and ran thru the cards, hand to hand, showing they were well mixed.

Then you immediately re-spread the cards to show they were now divided into reds and blacks! You explained that you culled them. Not being a card guy at the time, I was completely floored!

Do you explain that in any of your materials? It would certainly be a valuable "tool".

I explain the cull on the UIS DVD. The explanation there is specifically about using the cull to control selections, but if you think of the 26 black cards as selections the finger movements are the same. Perhaps others who have seen the DVD can chime in...

I hope this isn't considered a fluff post, but I must second the notion of learning the cull. I'm practicing it now and it really is useful. I first saw it used by Kostya Kymlat and he's excellent with it. I've basically been working from his lecture notes and memory. Now that I know it's on UIS, I'll be getting the DVD soon.
