See the Magicana section of the May 1987 issue of GENII magazine - Earl Nelson's "An Approach to the MacDonald's Aces". Although not EXACTLY the same as the Jay method, it is BASICLY the same. Mr. Nelson's handling is actually a bit cleaner and slightly more natural looking than Jay's (but not to the extent that it makes any real practical difference). The price you pay for the somewhat cleaner look, is that you must create a reason to pick up the leader pack once more (before you begin the vanishing sequence). The most obvious reason would be to hand the packet to a spectator to hold. If you work this way, the Nelson method is all you could ask for. If you aren't going to have a spectator hold the cards, it would be better to use Jay's method (which I prefer anyway). If you can't locate this issue of GENII, then just watch the video of Jay's performance over and over. You should be able to dope out the method with a little thoughtful study. The Nelson article is worth hunting down though. It contains a lot more information than just the stuff on the lay down sequence.
