Aren't these all old VHS releases simply now being re-released as DVDs?

They're both listed as being A-1 videos on Meir Yedid's website, and I didn't think A-1 was still in business.

Back To Hierophant
Mayhew Poker Again

Finally Matched
Close Encounter
Ungaffed Ted
Ten Card Trick
One Kiss
CR Move
Cipher
and
Return To Ishtar (coins)"

http://www.mymagic.com/dvd/dvd-ackerman.htm

After watching this dvd I can tell you this is a great card dvd. Several routines is truly amazing. Ungaffed Ted, fooled me badly. And, Ten Card Poker was extremely strong, the best I have seen!
This effect is a winner many times, SURE.
Most effects looked very good.
I need to watch it again, so many goodies on one dvd.
I recommend it very much!

Dont miss the effect Back To Hierophant, superb card magic!

The Bottum-Up Zarrow False Shuffle is very convincing and in-the-hands, sure. Even very close it will look great.
I will add this false shuffle as a true killing card weapon!
Killer card magic is fun, hehe.

Most of the effect can be found in this lecture note:
Classic Handlings by Allan Ackerman
Notes from 1999
These notes contain a dozen moves and routines.
