Pull through shuffle

I've recently been working on the pull through shuffle and thought I might post video HERE. Any and all advice would be much appreciated. Any good sources to learn this move other than expert card technique and RIchard Turner's dvd would also be welcome.

Thanks a lot,

Re: Bob Stencel Passes...

Shame I never got to meet him. Bob seemed like a great guy and a great magician as well. I would be interested in learning some of his work. Where can I learn stencel's aces? (The version Jennings first showed Vernon, not the Jennings '67 version).

My condolences to his family

Ultra Cervon Book

Hi:
I am looking for Bruce Cervon's book, "ultra cervon". This could be some out of print highly sought out collector's item so forgive me if this is just a dumb request. But anyways, I am looking if anyone has ultra cervon, the book, not the dvd.

Thanks,

Re: What is your favorite torn and restored card effect?

When you do a Torn and restored where there is one corner left at the end for proof, you shouldn't have it signed. Because signing is proof and them tearing off a corner is a note of proof as well, at the end there will be no questions asked if you didn't have them sign it. because, that torn corner...

Re: What is your favorite torn and restored card effect?

Although I said list one other than reformation it's the best because it's visual and fully restored, and can be handed out at the end, the only problem being it's extreme difficulty............torn by garcia good as well in my opinion.
