WTB: Richard Turner and Stewart Judah Three Card Monte manuscripts

Hi all,

I'm looking for "Three Card Monte Fully Exposed" by Richard Turner.

I'm also looking for the Stewart Judah manuscript from which Daryl got the hipe based Judah routine on his "Daryl Does The Full Monte" DVD.

Thanks,
Andru

Re: "The Greatest Cardtrick Of Our Time"...not the one you think!

This sounds vaguely related to the "Telepathic Deck of Cards" described on page 245-246 of Tarbell 4.

Re: New sleights , moves, techniques, principles?

When you say "important", what do you mean? Popularity? (used in lots of tricks/by lots of magicians) Deceptiveness? (made some move or trick a lot more deceptive) Scope? (made new effects possible) Something else? There's also the question of what you mean by "invented". There a...

Re: Seeking original Ireland Drop Cover Pass description

I've found that according to Marlo (in M.I.N.T.) it is described in one of Ireland's "Year Books". Does anyone here own these? Could I trouble you to check and see which one it's described in?

Re: Cogitations Lives! (Until Oct. 5th, 2005 at least)

Matthew 20:1-16 might also be apt, for those who are into that sort of thing. Personally, I hope that those who use this material do it justice. Some of it's been in my working set for years, and I would hate to see it butchered. I also hope that those lucky enough to get this material will not skip...

Re: You won't believe this

One concern comes to mind immediately. It obviously uses a gimmick. Is it going to wear out? If so, is it something that the purchaser can rebuild themselves, or will another $99 investment be required?

Re: Knuckle flash

Relax the fingers and pretend you're pulling the card straight through the fingers. The card will bend up a little, and the fingers will straighten out a little under the pressure of the card, but they'll snap back faster than they would if you tried to voluntarily open and close them. Beveling the ...

Collected tricks of type X

It was mentioned on the SECOND DEAL thread that there is a current trend of packaging up a bunch of tricks of type X and selling them at once, rather than making a newcomer do the grunt work of finding the classics for themselves. I've heard mention of this before, and I've heard people criticize it...

Re: Chinese Shuffle

Just for fun, if you want to get into any memorized setup from a random order, try upjogging the following sequence. First, upjog and strip to the back the cards whose positions in your stack are: 2,4,6,8,10,12,14,16,18,20,22,24,26,28,30,32,34,36,38,40,42,44,46,48,50,52 Then: 1,4,5,8,9,12,13,16,17,2...

I think it is more effective to have the spectator pick once at the very end, since it creates more of a "gaming" atmosphere, but I don't like the idea of insulting them or risking them pointing to the wrong card. What I do is to glance up at the audience briefly while I am moving just the...

It seems awfully easy to reinvent something that already exists. I know I've done it more times than I care to remember.
