I'm "ok". I just needed to take some time away for reflection and set some resolutions and goals for this New Year. I appreciate your concern - thank-you.

If folks are still interested, I'd be happy to share this routine with everyone as a nice way to ring in the New Year. Just send me a PM and if there is enough interest, I'll set about getting it out to everyone.

Happy New Years' everybody. Smile

Hi Sudo,

Have send you a PM about Enpassant a while ago.
Hope you will read it and reply to it.

@ Mark Chandaue: Thanks for taking the time to comment. Brian Watson's marketed effect you mentioned (Psychic Chess 2) is actually his "The Grand Master Gambit" which was first published in Syzygy and mentioned in my initial list. The *only* difference between the two is that his original routine used actual Chess pieces, while the "new" version is the exact same routine except that he uses cards with Chess pieces printed on them (instead of actual pieces) so that they can be easily carried around in a wallet. I prefer the original routine because there's just something visually appealing about actual Chess pieces that I really like and using cards with Chess pieces printed on them feels contrived to me. Additionally, the use of actual pieces also makes it much more suitable for a formal show. Of course, that's just my perspective - others may feel differently. Smile



Incorrect. Yes, Psychic Chess 2.0 does use plastic cards. These are very thin (and were expensive to produce) so they only take up a single slot in a credit card holder / wallet. You have the option of using the cards or chess pieces. However, that is *not* the *only* difference. The major difference is that all memory work (including the set up) has been removed in 2.0. That's the main difference. This gives people the option of memorising it all (set up, sequence and order removed) or nothing at all, or just using the cue / prediction and real chess pieces.

Respectfully,
Bri

No problem Brian.

I simply watched the performance video only, and the effect appeared identical - other than the use of cards. Sorry for the slight misrepresentation. Smile

Hey Sudo!

I hope you are doing well!

Would you please tell me more about your chess routine?
I would really like to try it out, as I am a chess player myself and I already do a little routine with chess pieces sometimes, so it would fit me very nicely, I think. Smile

Greetings,
Alex

As a owner/performer of Psychic Chess 2.0, I must say that I like it for many reasons. The built-in crib is nice for those of us whose memories aren't what they used to be. Plus, since it's just a set of cards, it's quite suitable for walk-around work.

If I was performing the effect for parlor or stage, I would switch out the cards for actual chess pieces.

By the way, I am a huge fan of Brian's work, and own several of his effects. Smile
