Hi, I've got a question about the Marlo-style snap change. I've got a trick where I use the move to split a four into the four aces. I can't imagine that I'm the first person to think of changing a single card into multiple cards, so I was wondering if anyone knows who should be credited with this technique.
At least the only work on using the snap change with multiple cards is from the Buck twins. I can't remember the name of the original effect (which involved spliting a three into an ace and a deuce and was featured in Genii), but an updated version is "Twin Split" (where a four is split into two twos, then the two is split into two aces). Again there might be older work along these lines, but these are the only ones that I know of.

Thanks for the info Ian and John. So far, that's the only previous source that anyone seems to remember, but I'm pretty confident I've seen the move somewhere before that...and that's a two-handed thing. Never mind...hopefully I'll be remembered for it anyway. ;-)
