Hello again folks...I was messing around with the Bluff Pass and independently came up with this http://youtu.be/fJk4cu-fR3c Where I have never seen it before, maybe one of you out there has. I like this because of the 'no awkward' hand covering and the 'no doubt' on the separation of two halves of the deck. 1st phase is a second deal, 2nd is a double turnover, and third ofcourse is just the top card from the double. Anywho, hope this is inspiring and/or gives me knowledge for crediting who came up with this first. Always Now - Robert

You might want to check out my move, "Passtitution," in Harry Lorayne's Best of Friends - Volume Three, p. 403.

Unfortunately, the book isn't in my collection.......yet. Is this the move?, or are you refering to a 'same idea, different concept'? Either case.....I like this move....and if it is yours....cudos!

I'm not sure of how your move works, but it looks similar.

Hi Bob....my first finger pulls the top card open while my middle finger points to the other half....thus opening the gap for it to be able to slide in second from the top.

You definitely need to read my version. Incidentally, my version is completely angle-proof and is completely deceptive even if you are surrounded.

I also have a variation which delivers the card to the bottom of the deck.

Cool Bob....if it is indeed all in 'Best of Friends Vol 3, then I will bump that book up on my wish list and will look foward to indulging into your material. Hopefully this string will send others there as well.
