Today we also have the flourish where you spin a card on your fingernail. But wait, there's more... The face up into face down shuffle The very premise of losing a card into the pack after a selection (Nate Leipzig recognized this back early last century) Split fans Using Aces instead of Court cards for tricks. Like we EVER had that issue here so we need to fuss about THAT issue? Ha! Like the reason our judges wear black robes, some traditions seem to have lost their context. Tearing up a card only to restore it IMMEDIATELY afterward. The list goes on and on.. The leader ace, or worse, the "master ace"! Why are folks using those lines? Here's a two dollar tip! Look the card is blushing! Inverse color cards. Nice in context, though downright awkward for full routines. * no disrespect to Troy and the folks who invented the flourish cut stuff, it's simply become overused and trite. May as well add the rising cards to the list. I've been shown the pinky rise several times by layman. [/quote]
