Hey Arnie, thank you so much. I just looked at the link and it was very helpful. I noticed some people who bought the dvd were having some complications with the second disc: it had skipping problems. Everyone seemed satisfied with the material however. I think I will purchase it but I'll make sure I buy it in person from a dealer so that I can check the quality of the discs to make sure they're not damaged.
Two things I'm really looking forward to learning are the "crossroad stripout shuffle control" and "Scarne's Aces." I'm hoping to be able to incorporate the control into a run-up sequence for a gambling routine that I have. As far as Scarne's aces, I just want to know how Scarne did it=) I usually just cold deck a stripper during the routine and I'm pretty satisfied with my handling. Usually people will argue that a borrowed deck can be brought in with Scarne's method, but no one has ever asked me to use theirs.
Other than that, thanks again for the help and the info.
My apologies again to Damian Nieman and Alfred Neuman.
Take good care,
