Anyone know where this is in print? I thought it was in Expert Card Technique, but I haven't been able to locate it there.
Thanks in advance.
The bubble peek is taught on page 101 of Expert Card Technique, and is used in part of the routine Denis referenced, "Reading the Cards of Any Deck" (step 9). Here, it's used to peek at a card not on top, but several cards down (at a number named by the spectator).
The idea is also used in a similar routine in Card College 4, on page 993.
I can recall baffling my sister many years ago with a repeated bubble peek. I'm almost certain I got the idea from ECT.
