Re: Genii Convention

Was there also a porfolio given out to the attendees like five years ago?
I still regret not being able to get one.

America's Got Talent performance

I'm surprised no one has started a thread about the performance of Will Tsai on AGT.
I thought it was quite interesting. I think the judges will remember that for along time.

Thoughts?

Re: The May Issue of Genii is Now Live Online and On Its Way to Your Mailbox

In the Jim Swain article he states on page 73 that Larry Jennings .."beat the casinos in Nevada using sophisticated sleight of hand". Is there truth to this? Its a great article but this stood out.
