I've just got Apocalypse 3 and it is truley awesome. Anyone who says fifferent needs their head examining. Anyhow, I have noticed that one of the largest parts involved in the tricks is false counts, dispays etc.- Olram, flushtration,ascanio,etc. Is their any books out there which are devoted entirely to such things?

I think the book you're looking for might be Counts, Cuts, Moves and Subtlety by Jerry Mentzer...


Undercuts & Reversals: Double Undercut, Brave Reversal, Concealed Reversal

Counts, Moves, and Subtlety: The biddle Move, Hamman count, Vesser Count, Another count, Flushtration Move, Haback Count, Olram Subtlety, Downs Change, True or False

Elmsley, Jordan, etc: The Elmsley count, added comment, The Jordan count, The Siva count, Open count, Smile Count, Paris Count, Spirit Count

Spreads: Simple spread, the back spread, buckle count, ascanio spread

I haven't got the book myself but I've seen several sites selling it for 10 $ or less.

hope this helps.

The Mentzer book is one book (I can supply it in the UK) but there is also a similar book out now called, (I think) "Techno Magic".

Jon Racherbaumer wrote a great booklet just on the Ascanio Spread which included tricks with it. I can also supply that but in the USA you can probably get it from Lee Jacobs or H & R Books.

Roberto Giobbi's Card College books cover many of these false display techniques (and of course countless other utility techniques you might want to know and learn).

Racherbaumer's Ascanio Spread Booklet is great. . .I got it from H&R. . .There are a few great tricks in there using an AS to display three cards when you have four.

Problem: the font size and nomenclature style is primitive and sucks. Get out our microscope and prepare to make notes after every paragraph. I mean every sentence.

That is, if you want to learn the tricks you like.
