Re: The really odd things one finds on the Cafe

"Vlad" is among the Internet's most reliably tiresome blowhards, always quick to make an insipid observation about the subjectivity of opinion or to advertise his soft-toned sensitivity. He sounds like a middling student halfway through a master's degree in dumbed-down philosophy at a thi...

Benzais Cop

I have been reading a thread on another forum (which, BTW, I am banned from) that has mention of the Benzais Cop. After reviewing Marlo's variant of the sleight in Advanced Fingertip Control , I see that Marlo said that in his first meeting with Persi Diaconis, Diaconis claimed that the sleight was ...

Re: Original Card Control to the Top

2 cents on BrianB2s comments. Your feedback is perfect for my variation on the Bluff Pass. What I am doing is controlling a selection to the top with deck in same sequence order. Unlike the Bluff Pass, the selection has to be removed to be bluffed at least 2nd from the top. With my control, there i...

Re: Original Card Control to the Top

Well, I will revise my comment. When done expertly, and I have seen Frank Thompson do his bluff pass, granted many years ago in my youth, I will state that any expertly done bluff pass is far superior to this technique. Howie Schwarzman also has an expert bluff pass technique, complete with sound ef...

Re: Original Card Control to the Top

Looks more like an inferior variation of the Marlo-Thompson Bluff Pass to me.

Since the effect first appeared in The David Berglas File No. 1, in 1976, 35 years ago, how could you be collecting over 40 years?

Re: WTB Johnson Products Himber Wallet

I believe there were two versions of the Johnson Himber.

Are you looking for the first version that had the flap?
