Re: Guy Hollingworth - The Expert At The Card Table

I just subscribed. The Hollingworth episode is stated to be “temporarily unavailable.”

I’ll check back! Thank you!

ERDNASE

Not sure if anyone in this forum listens to the Dan Cummins “Timesuck” podcast. But I submitted this overall subject as a suggestion for one of his involved expeditions. He put it up for a vote in the forum. It’d be interesting to hear it aired in such a way.

Re: ERDNASE

Martin Gardner apparently thought so, too, and explored the possibility that Twain might have helped edit or ghost the book for Milton Franklin Andrews, since both were residents of Hartford, Connecticut and billiard players. This thread should just be made into a book by itself. That’s cool, Richa...

Yeah . . . I thought about that after the fact, although I wasn't offended. Johnathan has always been really straightforward.

I would appreciate an elaboration on the "power of doubt" thought :)

Re: Alaskan Poker by Ricky Jay

Why go fourth rate to honor secondary sources? The Hofzinser routines are around. The power of doubt? Because I happen to have a scripted place in my act where I acknowledge the book's value to magicians and card-cheaters alike, and perform the routine as "the author may have envisioned it per...

Having read Auschwitz, a New History (Laurence Rees), The Hiding Place (Corrie Ten Boom), and Night (Eli Weisel)--all this year, I think this would be a great way to round out the subject for me this season.

Thanks.

One thing I can say:

The unrushed way he did the top change is a lesson in and of itself.

Beyond that, it's cool to see someone simply making a cool moment for someone else.

Re: ERDNASE

Upon finding myself flailing about in the agitation cycle of life, and being nearly completely absent from Magic Forums completely for a few years (with a few aberrant exceptions.
