Flynn, it's not that hard to rise a thought of card. Simply follow Tom Baxter's method, or Derek Dingle's for that matter, and rise the card you believe is the target. If it is not the card, proceed with your "Out" for this effect. The Fred Robinson/Krenzel pinky card rise method does the trick nicely.
That is a clever approach, Erlandish, but this gentleman performed name-a-card effects--not-think-of-a-card.
Finally, Danny Archer never responded to my inquiry--no matter--the Garrett Thomas routine is most likely the one on his third L&L DVD. According to Dustin Stinnet in his Genii review, Mr. Thomas weakens this effect with his embellishments. Onward... (With apologies to Racherbaumer)
