Yes I thought he was definitely the best of the entrants, and well deserved the 1st place.

Full run down of the convention as it happens is available over on our site: http://www.magicconventionguide.com/cat ... 2008-live/

Photos are also going up as we get them, and if i can grab some time with shawn tomorrow I hope to be able to get his reaction to his new (and well deserved) title!!

Our chat with Shawn is now online. In addition to sharing some of his experiences as a magic competitor, he tells us one of the most amusing antic-dotes on meeting Dai Vernon that we've ever heard on the show. Lance Burton, Ed Marlo, Larry Jennings and many more also make an appearance. ENJOY

Congrats to Shawn on the win ... I really do look forward to seeing what new miracles he has in store if a 'new' act is in the works for FISM '09 ...

Such a great guy and powerhouse of energy and creativity.

Great, Between Sterling Deitz and Shawn Farquhar the Pacific Northwest is going to sink into the ocean under the weight of all the awards and trophies these two guys keep bringing home.

Congrats Shawn!
