Randino,

Nice to finally see a picture of your new girlfriend!

Solrak,

Randy's routine can be found in Randy Wakeman Presents and also seen on his new Lake Tahoe Bar Magic DVD's. Of course you can see me performing Red's Back in Town every Saturday night at the Soho Playhouse as one of my Strange and Unusual Hobbies!

Selected card from Kudu is an overlooked effect. That'll teach him to lie about the darn card he picked.

On Friday nights, the even more unusual hobbies of Simon Lovell are in evidence: wear the latex, live the lifestyle, and listen to Pat Page's seashell. I guess it all works just like a piece of rice on a Chinese bowl?

"Final Verdict", as Bannon calls it, is the same as Wakeman's in "Formula One Close-Up" except for the way the second Ace is set; Bannon uses SWAK and Wakeman a Side Steal.

The last thing I'd want is a kiss from Randy but I like the SWAK method.

Now, Simon on the other hand, he's supposed to be a pretty good kisser.

I think that Harry published his handling of the Riser subtlety recently in Secrets of an Escamoteur. I'll have to take another look at the book, but I believe that it's in there.

The best version I have seen is by Bernard Billis. I don't know whether it is in print, but he explains the details on his lecture video put out by International Magic.

What a good and almost complete thread! But I think the initial question is still not answered. Or am I wrong?

How do you get the spectator to cut at the right spots?

Because it eliminates one of the most common theories (cards are somehow switched). Something like this can build. For example, here is a ranking (from "worst" to "best") of how I think cutting to the aces plays to the spectators based on key elements (assuming everything else is identical):

performer cuts and turns over aces
performer cuts and spectator turns over aces
spectator cuts and performer turns over aces
spectator cuts and turns over aces

I believe he was asking for the name of an effect (what this is?). Not an explanation of "why" it is stronger if the spec cuts to the aces rather than the performer.

You may also want to drop Ross a PM and let him know you "answered" his year old question, I doubt he's checking this thread very often.

Lol, you are totally correct. I read it as "Any clues WHY this is?", which I thought was pretty straightforward, lol.

Nah, no need to PM, especially since I didn't answer his question (wow, I hope brain fart is acceptable language because I most definitely had one here). Besides, I like the discussion rather than just answers anyways.

Thanks a bunch,
Carlos

LOL! I was wondering if you were ever going to revisit this thread. No harm, no foul.
