Marlo's Double Undercut Palm -- Reference?

Postby erdnasephile » January 21st, 2011, 11:49 am

Hello, all:

I need to learn this move for a routine I'm working on.

This move was published in Marlo's Magazine #4, but I do not have access to this manuscript.

Does anyone know if it has been published elsewhere please?

Many thanks!

Harry Lorayne

Probably in at least two-thirds of my books. HL.

Am I right in thinking that it is an Art Altman move? Anyway, I seem to recall that I saw the move described in one of Aaron Fisher's colomn in Genii one, two years ago.

Yves is correct. Altman's Double Undercut Bottom Palm is explained by Arron Fisher in his Column in Genii January 2009. Via iGenii: http://askalexander.org/displaypdf.cgi?pid=1873989

Also in Randy Wakeman's "Special Effects" and "Randy Wakeman Presents". (Has anyone else noticed the similarity in titles with Paul Curry's "Special Effects" and "Paul Curry Presents"?)

You are right and Marlo too because he attributed the sleight to Art Altman in Marlo's Magazine. But as usual, he gave also his own variants.

For anyone else interested in learning this move, the detailed description in Wakeman's Special Effects (pg 96-98) cited above includes a lot of finesse that is not included in the description in Genii (including an important bit of finger repositioning that provides cover).

Interestingly, I also found another reference where the angle jog is replaced by a straight side jog, but I think it's the angle jog handling that feels more natural.

If anyone uses this move on a regular basis and if you wouldn't mind a technical question, would you kindly PM me? I have a brief question that might help clear things up for me even more.

Thanks again everyone for all your help!
