Where can the effect where the card spins on your thumb and middle finger be learned, I have seen it in the show off 2 video after the awesome blossom production but it is not taught.

Hi Chris

I think this flourish is one of those where you can learn it just by watching the performance video a few times, and then practice. Well that's how I learnt it.

Few basics, make sure you are holding the
card with your thumb and middle finger.
Thumb on top and middle finger on bottom.
Now with your index finger push the card forward a little and then pull it back, in one motion.
When you pull your finger back, at the same time lift your thumb up a little so the card is only spinning on the middle finger.
I hope this makes sense, let me know if you
have any questions.

ps Also note that when griping the card with your thumb and finger, don't grip the card too tightly, you should hold the card very loosely.

Hope this helps.

You can also find it in one of the "Card College" series. I am not sure which one, but I'm sure someone in the Café will know. It is also in the big freakin' "Encyclopedia of Playing Cards" available at
