Capitulating Queens

Is it true that Jennings liked this trick very much despite the fact it needs a gimmicked card?

I can't tell you about Jennings' reaction to "Capitulating Queens," but he was certainly not averse to using gaffs.

One of my favorite tricks of his is "Pineapple Surprise" which is, as they say, "gaffed to the hilt."

"Capitulating Queens" is a trick by Jim Swain. He was a good friend of Jennings and if Jim says that Jennings liked it, then I'm sure Jennings liked it.
Jennings created quite a few routines using gimmicked cards. "Pineapple Surprise" is one of the best and can be found in my book "Jennings '67." He also created an excellent version of "McDonald's Aces" which appeared in Genii sometime in the last three years.
