Hi Chad:

I really like your above captioned routine. FYI, as a preamble, I do a few comedy-shuffles (while keeping the stack in place) before I launch into it.

But I was wondering if you have any more "work" on it?

Best regards,
Apurva Sanghi

Hi Apurva,

Thanks for writing. I don't really have any more work on it, but Doc Eason gave me a neat tip that I don't think he'd mind me sharing. If, when you start the routine, the spectator messes up and really shuffles their half, don't act like anything's wrong. Just switch halves with them like it's part of the trick, and keep going with the rest of the routine. At the end, you'll end up with an indifferent card on top of each of your piles and they'll have the four kings, so it'll still make them look good! Take care...

Chad
