Ackerman Routine in Castle Keep?

A place where beginners can participate, ask questions, and post their views. However, beginners typically ask a lot of questions about sources, tricks, books, and so on. In fact, all magicians are interested (or should be) in the provenance of tricks, ideas, and related matters. This department will service these needs.

Can anybody tell me what Allan Ackerman routine was written up in Tom Blue's CASTLE KEEP? Also, in what issue did it appear?

I have up through Vol.2 #4 and no Ackerman trick is in any of those issues. I'm not sure how many more issues of Castle Keep were printed, if any.

Ok, just found a few more issues.....Allen has OPTICAL RHYTHM in Vol.2 #6. It is a way to show four cards as four while secretly concealing the identities of two of them.

I believe that THE CASTLE KEEP went through Vol2 #12.
