Re: Royal Road on DVD???

Is Rudy Hunter the same guy who renamed the Zarrow Shuffle to 'The Hunter Shuffle'?

Re: Scarne's Cutting the Aces.

Well, I use 7 shuffles in that video clip and the cull only takes 60 seconds to do. I don't think that's too much to sit through really.

Each to his own though.

Re: Scarne's Cutting the Aces.

You've got the numbers slightly wrong (more like about 6-7 max, 3 at the bare minumum), but yes, that's the general idea.

Re: Scarne's Cutting the Aces.

Or if the deck is handed to you cold. You as the magician have no idea where the aces are in the deck. That's why it's impressive, because you genuinely have no clue where they are. If you have to spread through the cards to see where the aces are, you may as well do a pseudo cutting the aces effec...

Re: Scarne's Cutting the Aces.

You only need to do two shuffles, as if you fail to spot the card on the left you can do a push through shuffle so the ace will be on the left during the second shuffle.

Re: Scarne's Cutting the Aces.

Backdating aside, it's not really your effect Glenn. I think Scarne had you beat by quite a few years. And the method is important to the effect, because the method affects the effect. As an example, compare these two methods. one: Have a spectator shuffle the cards, take them back and spread the de...

Re: Scarne's Cutting the Aces.

Come on Glenn, it's cheating. Admit it! ;) If you have the spectator shuffle, surely you don't need to spread the deck face up four times to show them mixed. It's not like they're going to forget the fact each time you find an ace.

It's a bit of a cheat to have to spread the deck face up between each shuffle.

Re: Scarne's Cutting the Aces.

Oh,I'm not claiming anything, just messing about with riffle culling. Jennings cheated a little with 'Gamblers Aces' as he used a multiple shift to get the aces on top before he started the riffle cull.

Scarne's Cutting the Aces.

My attempt at emulating John Scarne's Cutting the Aces, using the Stevens Cull. Little sloppy, but I'm working on that.

Re: Here we go again, Ebay

I tend to report these things when I see them. E-bay remove the listings within a couple days or so.

Best thing to do (if you own the copyright) is to contact the seller, threatening legal action.

That's not the same thing at all. As you said, you didn't explain the workings, you only described all you had to add; the presentation.

Re: Double standards?

If Ron Bauer found a way to perform the routine so that it is both more engaging and also less stressful on the performer... I'd be delighted.
'If' being the operative word. What 'if' it was published without this 'more engaging less stressful' qualifier.
