Larry Jennings Bruce Cervon card effect

Discuss the tricks and sleights which appear in Genii.

Postby Stefano » 02/02/09 10:09 AM

I was looking to find a card effect by Larry Jennings and Bruce Cervon who appear in Genii Magazine, unfortunately I do not remember the number and the year.

I remember Richard Kaufman speak very well in his column Genii Speaks.

Can someone help me to find the Genii number?

Many thanks for your help!

Cheers
Stefano

Bruce is on the cover of the October 2004 issue. I would start there.

The ones mentioned by Philippe above were all originally entries in Bruce Cervon's "Castle Notebooks" which Charlie Miller published in Genii as part of the Magicana series.

Good stuff.

Thank you for your suggestios:

The effect which I can not remember the name is signed by both Jennings and Cervon, and I think it was published after the 2004, but I could not find it

No it was in Genii, I still remember the illustrations by Earle Oakes.
Maybe Mr. Kaufman can help me

I am not sure but the only thing I remember is the principle to miss call a card or show for example an eight but in reality is a seven by hidden the index and the card is half put in the deck (the cards I mentioned are only for reference)

But my memory is very poor at the moment

I get it!!
But I must to say to all of you I am very sorry
The effect is by Ed Marlo and the two mens cites by Kaufman are Michael Skinner and Derek Dingle

I know you are laugh... sorry for the mess...

Anyway a great effect The Princess Killer pag. 23

We are all on the shoulders of giants!

Vol. 71, no 9, sept 2008, page 23.

BUT the trick by Bruce Cervon AND Larry Jennings could be
The Diamond Revelation, page 72, oct 2004, because we can read :

"The appearance of the four Aces is perhaps the ultimate refinement of Larry Jennings."
