The Bammo Tarodiction Toolbox is going into its 6th printing. When I first decided to publish the manuscript I thought it would have a very limited appeal, but it seems there are a lot of people out there who want to be on the leading edge of card trick methodology. Thank you for all the support. Ri...

I'm not sure what you mean by resetting, since the gaff resets itself: there is no need to do anything. I'd publish all this material but: 1...
