I have a technical question, maybe some have suggestions. There is a beutiful performance of Menage et Trois on youtube. I believe with some mods the basic construct is from the Kenner routine. At any rate, I love the flash appearance of the second and third coin in the right hand. I can manage the first coin well and the vansishes OK. But cannot manage the "pop-out" from the whatever palm behind the first coin. This move is not I believe described in the original Kenner routine. Any thoughts, references or PMs would be appreciated. Tahnks

The "pop-out" move as you describe it, is essentially the same thing described in his "bus pass", but you don't take the coin you produce.

Essentially you pull the visible coins back as your third finger curls in and extends back out bringing the hidden coin with it. Your third finger is pressing the hidden coin against the visible coin(s) as it does so. A little shake of the wrist hides this action.

If it is not really clear, I do happen to teach this specific move in the first routine on my DVD Coin Man Walking it close detail if you happen to have that DVD.

Two things for information: I know it's written this way in Chris Kenner's book, but in french we say "Menage A trois", not "Menage ET trois"...
The second thing is, you won't be sorry is you get Dan's dvd, it really a little jewel among the bazillions of coin magic dvds... Just my two euros...

Appreciate the replies and apologize for my poor french. I have Dan's DVD but clearly have not studied it closely enough. I am afraid "skimming" DVDs has become a bad habit. I will look again, thanks
