Re: Practicing Cards Anywhere

I love going to the movies, so I do a lot of practicing there; side steal, pinky count, passes, etc. I'm in a wheelchair, and the section for us is always in the back in a somewhat secluded area, so it's easy to get in some productive practice time.

I, too, learned the Faro from CUCM and so was doing it from top to bottom for years. I started playing with doing it bottom to top over a year ago. I switched to it permanently after one of RK's previous posts. It really is easier and more consistent.
