Marlo's Slip Cut?

Postby Sean-Dylan » September 25th, 2009, 1:49 pm

Can anyone tell me where I can find a description of Marlo's Slip Cut? I am reading a routine (in Marlo Without Tears) and it references this move without a description.

There's a few references to Marlo and Slip Cuts over at Denis Behr's site.

There's one in particular for a tabled, multiple card slip cut that's in Marlo Without Tears. I don't know if this is what's being referred to, though.

See The Patented Shuffle (1966) Section Two - The Slip Cut.

The Slip Cut was invented by T. Nelson Downs and established in private correspondance. Marlo claimed to have invented the Slip Cut, to which I say "baloney."

Can't recall. It's a single paragraph in a letter. There's a lot of Downs' correspondance in private collections.

And that's enough to call it "established in private correspondance" ?!

What slip cut are we talking about? Aren't tabled slip cuts coming from the gambling table? (There's one in Erdnase after all.)

Talking about doing a Slip Cut in the hands.

Many of Hofzinser's ideas were established in private correspondance that has yet to be published.

This reminds me of Jerry Sadowitz claiming credit for the gambler's double deal.

Hey, if those gambler's weren't smart enough to establish credit, that's their problem.

He claimed invention or usage? Mutatis mutandis and all that.
