Where can I learn flourishes with a single card? I would like to know some nice way to reveal the choosen card, to table it with some nice move, to do some nice juggling with it in my hands, and so on... Suggestions?

Not sure but you may find something in the 'Pasteboard frolics' section of the Café.
A Google search for "card flourishes" turned up this site an some possble others that may be of help.

For revelation of a card, I think Erdnase has a few in his book (The Expert At The Card Table), plus there's always the Hot Shot Cut.

Spinning it on your finger is a flourish I like to use sometimes as misdirection for a transposition trick. They pick their card, I'll spin it face up, then do either a top change or the switch with the DL then spin it face down before I place it on their palm. For some reason I hope it reinforces the fact that it was just one card, the same card, the entire time.

Check out the little Paul Harris flourish, I think it's called Instant Reset.

Actually it's called instant replay. Done with 2 cards it is called simple switch it is in the Art of Astonishment series. I get a lot of play out of spinning a card on my middle finger. I believe it's in Card College, but I had someone teach it to me at last year's WMS.

Yes the card spinning is a very cool single card flourish.

The long distance spinner, even if it uses the whole deck as a support, will spin your card feet away and make it come back "boomerang-like" into your hand.

Jj sanvert has a one card flourish. I am not sure however if it is his own. Its a spinning card flourish using the fingertips.

There's a nice revealation/flourish in CC Vol. IV, Chapter 51: Flourishes Pt. 2 called "Ravelli Pop Out" that is nice.

Thanks KRZ, I checked the Ravelli Pop Out in CC and loved this move. And in the same chapter there are other nice flourishes with a single card... exactly what I was looking for. Thanks again!
