Re: What card principle is this?

I would say, it is a cyclic set-up with the last card in the stack goes back to the first card. It is a closed cycle. Interesting is that, if you count off any number of cards into a pile, and riffle shuffle this pile into the remaining packet, then any four cards right next to each other are a 1, 2...

Re: Frederick Braue

Was Fred Braue ever known as "Fritz" Braue? I see card routines published by that name in the early days of Genii (1937, 1938). As far as I know, that's the same guy. -Jim "Fritz" is a common first name in Germany! And "Braun" is a similar last name to "Braue"...

Re: The History of the Two Card Transposition

Most two-card transpostions are inspired by the Scarne effect done in the old Schaffer beer commercial. The Bluff Shift was first published in a small British book (Wesminster Wizardry?)--before the Tarbell SYSTEM in 1927 (not the Course, which didn't start until 1940). The other one commonly used ...
