You cut the deck or make one more shuffle.


So you're saying that the cull should not even be attempted if the desire card(s) is located at either the first or second position from the top?

Question for everyone: when do you know that you have perfected your cull to a sufficient standard?

Well the closer you can mimic Kostya's speed and smoothness, the further you are to perfecting it.

Quoted from above: "This is a great routine, but takes a lot of practice and it helps if you have a brand new deck of cards while practicing."

"Well the closer you can mimic Kostya's speed and smoothness, the further you are to perfecting it."

Good point. Lots of moves are designed in ignorance, only for a new or almost new deck. I only do sleights that work with any deck. I am not applying this to the RR cull. That would depend on how you find it works with the decks you use.

As for speed and smoothness, I differ a little here. If you are too fast and too smooth, then you are basically telling your spectators, 'I am fast and spend all my time in a closet practicing my card moves." As Lorayne and others have said, you have to have a justification for the move.

I do not ask you to agree with me, but I avoid flourishes. I don't want them to attribute my magic to skill. That is why often my performances cause great and sudden fear. Because they can only attribute it to magic and not to my skills. I think you can overuse the cull very easily. Without credible, logical justification.

Just so you know, Master Pupkin is pretty much a Marlo expert. He really knows Marlo, among others.
