No connection with no one. If you have it, you will see that what I wrote is true.
Well color me sceptical, but you join the forum, post about ACAAN in what reads like an Italian trying to speak English, then after a couple of posts you make glowing recommendations for a product that has testimonials from Harris and Magic Cafe idiots. And the product appears to me made by an Italian.
I could of course, be horribly wrong, but it just seems a little too coincidental.

Alen wrote:Hi Mr. Kaufman,
I consider this effect 100 better than The Berglas Effects.
The Berglas is an hands off acaan if it appears in your
performance. In the other case there is a lot of handling
and although the spectators won't remember it. Subtle Scam
is ALWAYS hands off before, during and after the performance.
David method requires misdirection and in some case a good handling, in Subtle Scam nothing.
For this reason Subtle Scam is 100 times better.
If Subtle Scam is crap I don't want to imagine what the Berglas Effects is.

Please copy what the 14th line on page 189 is in the book to prove you have it.

I'm sorry, for my colleagues, Alen. Do let us know a bit more about yourself, as you join our network. You may be new here (and welcome!) but maybe you've posted on other magic forums? Do let us know which ones, and what your name is there. Or maybe you are completely new to magic? Either way, let us know a bit more about yourself. It would certainly help me judge whether your criteria for a strong ACAAN are the same as mine.
with a warm welcome
El Mystico wrote:That's useful for us to know.
Since Richard's book is new (people have only been getting it the last couple of weeks), and you say your interest in ACAAN stems from then, you are telling us you are new to this effect.
I'm glad you're enjoying Subtle Scam, but, if you'll accept the advice of someone who has been on this forum for a while, I think you're a bit too new to this effect to be describing Subtle Scam as "the best product on ACAAN subject ever".
thank you for your post. No, this is my first forum where I start writing something. I start on this forum because I purchase a while ago the new book by Richard Kaufman.
After this book, I purchased other ACAAN effect until two days ago I have found this pdf. I was impressed: You need to pay 400$ to have the same info that I have found in a 12$ ebook.
As I posted that I was impressed for this pdf I was attacked.
Thank you Dominic, but this is not right way to accept a new member here.
Bob Farmer wrote:I looked at the description of "Subtle Scam." It is two effects, ACANN and think of a card (TOAC). The first spectator calls out a card and number and the second spectator looks at the deck and thinks of a card.
I have no idea how the trick works, but one way of accomplishing the effects would be to secretly position the card and number (first spectator) during the TOAC phase (second spectator).
After the revelation of the card and number, the thought card could be determined with, say, the Vernon "Out of Sight, Out of mind" approach (assuming the selection also used that approach).
So it's not really the pure ACANN effect--which to me means, at minimum, that once the card and number are named, there should be minimal or no handling of the deck.
It sounds like a good magazine trick, not a pricey manuscript trick.
Brad Henderson wrote:Alen,
There is a reason we have all heard of the Berglas effect and no one knows of the subtle scam effect; and it has nothing to do with a clever method for being able to position a named card at a named number. May I suggest that you may have confused methods for secrets in your reading of the Berglas text?
