It was almost midnight. I was with two colleagues. Until I saw this man set himself up, all three of us were heading back to our hotel near the Sorbonne. At that point, I talked the others into hesitating. By then, however, I was the only one who could actually get a decent view of the proceedings due to the size of the crowd and my surplus inches. My tired friends were willing to indulge me briefly. What I saw included some very difficult sleight-of-hand with cards performed without tells, hesitations, or guilt.
