No ace assembly? Sponge balls? Wildcard? Multiplying Billiards? Cut/burnt and restored hank?

okay, what criteria were used in making that list?

Good to see a mix of ancient and modern on that list with Al's Matrix, the arm twisting trick and Walton's Card Warp right there with the cups and balls and die box.
