Richard, in the December 2001 issue (Dai Vernon issue)this routine was published...I was wondering who made the improvment...was it Vernon?

Yes, of course Vernon!
We also included Paul Wilson's shuffle sequence.

Don't feel silly: we produce so much material every 30 days in doing Genii that it's likely things get overlooked. Keep watching closely: you'll catch me screwing up something or other. :)

Richard:

If you are a professional publisher, there is no excuse for making a mistake.

I forget who said this, so maybe it doesn't apply to you. :-)

This is a tremendous, anywhere, anytime effect with a shuffled deck...I'm adding it right into the set...
does anyone here use it professionally?

I used a handling slightly modified by Bob Kohler and Barry Wood for many, many years. I often used it as a follow-up to Derek Dingle's One-Hand Fan Force (From Derek Dingle's Complete Works, available from Kaufman and Co. I'm sure). It's great if someone says, "OH, he could only see one card." Then you can say, "Well, let me go slowly then..." This "think of a card" stuff can get very addictive. Be careful, if abused it can sometimes lead to...mentalism ;)
