That was great. I love seeing guys doing Erdnase stuff as I like reading the book and looking at their interpretations.
It would be cool to see other guys tributes to Erdnase under this topic.

Mr. Wessmiller:

Very nice video...thanks for posting it.

I really liked the two back to back bottom card changes you did at roughly the middle of the clip. May I ask what that move is called?

I hope we are seeing more from you soon!

Thanks for the kind words everyone,
I can't tell you what the moves that you are reffering to are just yet, I'm at work all day and I'm not sure the boss would approve of me installing quicktime to view it here. But I will list from memory the moves in no particular order...
Erdnase top palm
To control bottom sequence
SWE shift
Erdnase one handed shift
Erdnase two handed shift
Bottom deal
Second Deal (first method)
Bottom palm
Controlling top sequence

I think that may be all, I'll update this post when I get home.
be well,
JW

Everything looked asome I think the bottom deal is the least of the best(but it is still asome) I think you need to move the top card over more it mihgt look better although it might just be the camera
you can fool all of the people some of the time and some of the people all the time but never all of the people all the time.

Mr. Wessmiller:

It was almost the middle of the clip...right after you laid out the first run of spades in order and tossed the Ace at the end. You cut the cards face up and then did a change of the bottom card directly facing the camera. I believe you cut the cards again and then did the same move again, but from an angle this time...cards to your left. It almost looked like some form or variation of a pass/shift.

That help any?

Hey Sodman,
I have many versions of the text without annotations, and I have Card Mastery, Revelations, Annotated Erdnase and Hoffman's version. Ortiz' book is by far the best on the subject that I've found.
be well,

I suggest everyone check out Jason England's Website-

http://www.nls.physics.ucsb.edu/~nathanb......dex.html

It has descriptions of the various editions. Hoffman has a few chapters at the end of some editions in which he discusses erdnase.
