After reading an earlier thread on the C/S/B set, I purchased Paul Green's EXCELLENT DVD. I highly recommend it.

As suggested in the aforementioned thread, the C/S/B routine is well thought out and the approach for switching the coins quite clever. Paul has chosen to ask the spectators where the coins are and then proves them wrong. He seems to be able to do this without any embarrassment on their part. My training tends to make me want to use the "most people choose" approach rather than directly ask the spectator.

What are the thoughts of people here?

Later.....

Steve,
There are very few performers that can get away with the I'm always right and your always wrong premise. I am not one of them. I find it is much better to develop a presentation that has nothing to do with guessing, counting or right or wrong answers.

For the paid shows, stick with what you know. When you do the donated shows for charity events, those without a budget, you can experiment, a little. Of course, it's great to perform the material for other performing magicians before trying it on laymen, as well as looking at it on video. This will help eliminate most of the problems, leaving those that can only be worked-out through performances.
