Opay,
Thanks. I have never heard of the publication so I wouldn't have figured it out.

No prob. I guess I just need to be a bit more "in the know" Smile

I do the move and I don't think there is a problem with it. A casual smooth action while not looking at your hands are the keys to success.

I second the parker handling... Most exellent

I've just checked out Jack Parker's handling and it's really great (although ATFUS works just fine for me). Thanks for the recommendation!

The idea's roots actually goes back to Alex Elmsley, at least the principle of switching out face-up cards anyway.

Indeed - as Chris Kenner points out in his book. Elmsley published the principle considerable time before Marlo came out with it.

Alex had the idea of switching cards face up, but his original idea was not as suitable to most effects as what Marlo developed. Elmsley unquestionably deserves a nod conceptually, but Marlo is definitely the one who took it to the hilt and made it workable, so to speak.

There's a version (by Tom Stone, I believe) that enables you to do this move away from the deck, which is a great improvement in my opinion.
