Richard is my favorite author! Anything that he releases is pure gold! I know that if he says that various things are coming, they will be great, as everything from Richard.

Re: What Is Your Opener...

I'm with Richard, I only do card magic. I think that we are like the doctors, we must know a little bit of everything, but you have to have a specialty, if I'm a neurologist I'm not going to do plastic surgery. My opener is a production of the four aces from a truly shuffled deck, involving four spe...

Larry had a very close friend who's name is Fenik, a great card magician from Mexico. Fenik is a very good friend of mine, if you want me to put you in touch with him just let me know, he may know the stuff that is on the books.

Re: Why Triumph Is A Great Routine..

My favorite version is Bonus Trick by Larry Jennings, it is published in his Classic Magic book. You shuffle two times face up/face down and show both sides of the deck before squaring, then it has a killer ending that Jennings said that it is for magician, not for layman, but I found that for layma...

I love Jennings' Bevel Palm, is the palm that I use the most. Another good palm from Jennings is the One Hand Bottom Palm. I agree with Mr. Kaufman, you don't need to turn the deck.

Re: Larry Jennings New Book?

I'm happy to read that Mr. Kaufman is still working on the Jennings' books. I know it is a hard task, but I think that I talk for everyone when I say that we appreciate all the years of work you are putting on the books, Richard. I will wait for them!

Thank you Richard!
