Re: ERDNASE

magicam, I've been collecting Erdnase seriously for about 15 years I guess. Not really sure when I first "noticed" that I had a collection, but I bought my first edition in 2004 (I think) and that was 13 years ago. Jason I have a version, but not worth much i feel. Jason, met you in ottaw...

Re: Published Gambling moves Vs Magicians Sleights

Jason, I totally understand where you are coming from Jason and of course if like you say RogerM is referring to "Practical mastery" i can almost understand where he is coming from. I just took it as point blank 100% of the time. With a good deck like a Turners Bicycle or a bee's i feel c...

Martin Nash practiced a lot longer than 10 years. He still missed on occasion when the deck wasn't cooperating. It happens.

To most of us.

I know. And if you did not want to miss one, the stress goes up and guess what, you miss more.

Re: Published Gambling moves Vs Magicians Sleights

RogerM, There's no vitriol and I apologize if my choice of words made it seem that way. I wasn't mad - only confused at you appearing to say that you never missed tabled faros, then claiming you didn't say that. You've now clarified that you were only referring to the "hell of a card man"...

Re: Published Gambling moves Vs Magicians Sleights

As you also mention if Roger can indeed do table faro's and never miss then he is one hell of a card worker ..... I didn't, and would never say any such thing. Actually, you said exactly that. "I can hit a table faro, or an in the hands faro 100% of the time." -RogerM Or is this the part ...

Re: Published Gambling moves Vs Magicians Sleights

If you miss the faro then you push the decks together and do another trick. You should never never try again, unless you are really funny and can distract onlookers with a few witty comments. Better to just move along than fix the trick.

Re: Published Gambling moves Vs Magicians Sleights

I had a session with Jason England where I showed him my bottom deal and asked him how one could make the sound of the card coming off the bottom sound the same as the card coming off the top. He said that only I could truly tell the difference. So after 10 years of practicing the bottom deal, I sti...
