Re: Steven's Cull

Very nice - my suggestion would be to get the book Revelations the older copy or the newer one that was just published. They may have a few ideas and tips in them. I have no idea if you want to use this card table technique for magic - cheating - or just to do for your own enjoyment. Speaking of th...

Re: Steven's Cull

Where'd you learn this one from? The Vernon write up, or in the Classic Magic of Jennings book (incorrectly described)? If you love the Steven's cull, check out Wimhursts Kicked in the Face, which can be found on here : http://www.elmwoodmagic.com/?nd=full&key=2674 As well as in his Down Under ...

Re: raise rise performance?

The card needs to rise more times. You need to set the stage and make sure that the conditions are understood. You are putting the card down very close to the bottom and if you watch closely you can see it slowly rise a little at a time until it makes its way to the top. If someone watched your per...

That's got to be older than Roger Klause.

Put the time in and learn the Pass. BUT, if you're out late at a conve...

Ray, In the video, I did bring my hands toward my body. However, it wasn't intentional. In real life, I would've shifted the way I'm standing.
