There are three kinds of people in the world those who can count and those who cant.
As it turns out, I am (ironically) numbered among the latter. The way I usually perform Rematch is to start with a match fingerpalmed in my right hand. I open the matchbook, secretly bend down one match, hide it under my left thumb as the spectator counts the matches, then openly remove one match from the right side of the matchbook with my right hand and perform the two-phase time-travel routine as described. However, for some reason known only to God and possibly Michael Weber, I decided to describe a completely impromptu approach to the effect in my column, forgetting that, if youre going to pull two matches out from the right side of the matchbook at the outset, you must also hide two bent matches under your left thumb, rather than one.
Magicirishman, you have my sincere apologies.
