Yes, it's definitely Daryl's Rising Crime Display sequence. A beautiful thing.
I have a different handling of Daryls display sequence which Ive been using since I learned Daryls original handling.
The idea is simply to use the Stuart Gordon Stud Double Turnover to display each card before dealing it down. (This turnover is in print in Darwin Ortiz's CARDSHARK.) This handling would seem to be a natural outgrowth of Daryls orginal handling, in which the packet is held in RH end grip, and the first three are counted into the LH, leaving the double positioned in RH end grip, ready to be "Stuart Gordoned" face up, and then tipped down onto the LH cards.
Some of the benefits of this handling are: 1. Economy of action (the card doesnt have to be rested on the fan each time before the turnover). 2. Each face can naturally be displayed only briefly, and in transit, thus masking the fact that two faces are seen twice. 3. If using court cards (as in "Diamond Bar") after the Gordon turnover, the R thumb naturally "kills" the pip of the court card, and the L thumb can even touch the opposite index corner to mask that one as well.
Im curious if anyone has ever seen this kind of handling in print, or if anyone has been doing it this way. Id imagine so, as the idea seems quite natural (provided you do the Gordon Turnover).
