Re: a circle?

no, your answer was far from dumb mate. It brought me STRAIGHT to the right direction :D this fan is working a bit, it's not that hard. But I was wondering how Ricky Jay does it.

a circle?

I'm not sure how to call this thread but what I am asking is how this 'trick' is called.

with one hand the cards (the entire deck ) become like a circle.
I see this a lot and I think its quite simple ( but ofcourse difficult to do )

its a fancy way of saying to someone to 'pick a card' .

Where do you buy your books ?

I have been searching for "Gene Maze and the art of bottom dealing" but cant find it anywhere. it's as if the book has been disapeared.

so my question basically is where do you get your books from and if mine ain't there, do you happen to know where I can get it?

thank you,

It takes two to wander online. How's it going with finding a tutor or tutorial for the false deals? bad. Haven't found anything yet. England gave me some global tips, but none specific.

Re: who is wesley james

When youre by yourself, the bottom deal goes almost perfectly. When you are in a table where money is involved, there is this feeling that takes over, even when you just shuffle, that will mess up not only the deal, but even the shuffle if its that big. The more comfortable you sit at a table the ea...

But.. which one? which one suits best for at the table?

I heard it doesnt really matter which grip it is. So should I just not go into the erdnase? just ignore it?

Re: who is wesley james

To be honest I didnt really like the grip because its so weird looking which will give attention. But like the book said, use it for normal deal too. If in same company always use it. The mechanics grip is even more noticable since it comes on media more often to give a tell on cheaters. But I agree...

I think about buying it but can't find a review about it or about any other movie.

I hope someone can give me information. And should I be checking out allan ackerman instead?
