Actually the double lift is in Erdnase, though he doesn't call it a double lift. Page 93 - "The two cards to be exchanged are held in the right hand by the ends between the second and third fingertips and the thumb, and close together, so that when shown to the company they appear as one."...

Hi

Just a note to say that the rub a dub vanish handling in this months issue of genii is fantastic! My hat goes off to Glenn Morphew.

Also on page 29 near the end of the penultimate paragraph it should read "and are now magically all face down" (not face up ;) )

Hi Paul If you hold the cards above the table and just draw small packets off the top until you get to the break it looks very careless and unstudied. Which is how I interpreted the cuts to look. You could do them very neatly but then you're giving rise to suspicion of skill. In the Introduction und...

In the section dealing with false table cuts the cards are, for the most part held above the table. Do you think this was a deliberate attempt to describe methods which hide any skill and look somewhat sloppy and careless? When you see a lot of magicians do gambling demos they tend for the most part...
