Hey, I not sure if this is the right place for this post. How many different types of passes are there and are there DVD's that explains the different types.

Do you want to know how many different types are out there, or how many _useful_ different types are out there?

Have a look at Richard Kaufman's "On The Pass" and Peter Cassford's "Pass With Care".
Both are a really good way to start, but they definitly do not cover all types of different passes.

I can think of Classic, riffle, turnover, charlier, kick, and cut passes off the top of my head. But it doesn't mattter. Just do one or two really well.

If you are really interested in a DVD that teaches the classic pass really well, and not just knowing a bunch of different passes. I would recommend "Pass with Care" by Peter Cassford.

He teaches the pass in such a way that it really doesn't look so much like a move, he also gives some great tips on misdirection, and provides some subtleties that make the pass as invisible as you should ever need it to be.

At the end of the DVD, he does show a couple of variants.. riffle, jiggle, etc. But the bulk of the teaching focus on his method and misdirection for the classic pass.

I have always though this Bruce Lee quote, was good to apply to the pass.

“I fear not the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks once, but I fear the man who has practiced one kick 10,000 times.”

-- Bruce Lee

All this of course, is my humble opinion.
Regards,

Greg Hues

"Pass With Care" really only teaches one pass, but teaches it very well, with subtleties and variations. Kaufman's pass DVD teaches many, many passes.

If you want a general education, get both. If you just want to develop a usable pass, get Cassford's. If you just want to compile a list of different passes, search the Café all night.

There are two types of Passes. Top half to the bottom and bottom half to the top. My personal favorite video on variations of the pass is Kaufman's On the Pass. Other videos on the Pass are Pass with Care, The Pass, Royal Road with Paul Wilson, the Expert at the Card Table with Wesley James,Ninja (which I wouldn't really recommend), and Jay Sankey's Sankey-tised has a pretty in depth discussion on the move. In books, you'll find good descriptions in Card College, Royal Road, Expert at the Card Table, and my personal favorite Spread Pass in The Card Magic of LePaul.
Yes, that is my real name. Yes, I am a real person. No, you probably won't agree with me.

I would add Steve Draun*s work to the list . . . and Derek Dingle has another very good pass.

What is the difference? If you bring the top HALF to the bottom, the bottom HALF has to go somewhere, and because of the laws of physics, it becomes the top.

The difference lies in the mechanics. What packet moves where and how. The result is the same.

I will put in another vote for Sankey's work with the pass. He Goes into even greater detail in his Revolutionary Card Technique DVD's

I suppose you categorise into clockwise and anticlockwise rotations of the packets. For the left hand deck grip, most seem to be clockwise.
