Re: The Rauschenberg Effect by John Hostler

Hi,

The switchout technique of 1 from five I have been informed was published by Roger Crothswaite in his book Arcardia and is known as the up jog switch.

I applied it to a mental discernement type effect yesterday and it plays so strong.

Re: The Rauschenberg Effect by John Hostler

Hi Guys,

To anyone who has this ebook, who gets credit for the devilish one from 5 switch with the upjogged card at the end of the five card mental leap? It's a brilliant idea with alot of applications I am sure.

Hi Harry, Martin's method uses side steal to get rid of the x card. A very good idea indeed because in that way the Magi can work with cards face down and never sees the face of spectator's card. Still another approach to the "One-eyed Jack Sandwich" is Jon Racherbaumer's Eyed Jack Sandwi...
