I have devised what I believe is a fairly innovative and original way of palming a card, I'm not sure if it has any use in gambling other than the usual ´palming for the cut. Here's a video, I hope you enjoy it, please say what you think and thanks in advance.

OK 8, I'll bite.

I think you show a lot of promise as a magician.

M-8,

I agree that your palm would be good for any effect requiring removal of a card for reappearance elsewhere, whether it be from your pocket, card to wallet, or whatever.

One thing that stood out to me was the exaggerated extension of your right pinky finger, which I'm not sure is intended to "prove" that there is no card behind it, or is simply the way you normally handle cards.

Either way, I believe that the effect would draw less heat if the pinky was held in a more natural position. Maybe it's just me, but any handling of cards in a manner appearing other than completely natural draws unwarranted attention.

Keep up the good work!

Yes, it is to prove that there's no card in the hand, it can be eliminated, but then you can't extend your fingers that much,

I meant my compliment, but I also meant something else which perhaps you didn't pick up on.

As for the pinkie: at the gambling table, why would you ever want to prove that there's no card in the hand?

Stoneunhinged,
I did pick up what you say, this palm makes for a great steal and was originally thought for the card table, I do not wish to expose the method but you'd notice the the hand is meant to be over the table edge.
as for why you'd like to show an empty hand at the table, just so you're not suspected.

Do you often hold the deck that way and square it like that while standing up at the card table?

I have to admit it would look strange to me and I would fully expect the person doing it to continue with a magic trick.

Looks pretty good and I can see it's merits but if you don't want to expose the method you shouldn't have a 3.25 minute video of it since I pretty much had it down after about 2 mins.!

I've never done a card-to-pocket with anything resembling a Tenkai or longitudinal palm... does it work well?

The steal looks alright. It's invisible on this video but it's a slightly unmotivated action. Can you get into it from a deck-squaring action? Otherwise anybody who sees it enough is going to know that the second that hand is hovering over the deck is important.

Regarding the palm itself, the angles are tough but you probably already knew that. One thing, though, the hand that's holding out must look like it always does, so unless your hand is always in that sort of stylized pose for every trick you do, it's going to draw attention to itself.

DUe to your lack of imagination I have been forced to do a new video where I palm at a table.

The palm looks great. The right hand does look stiff though.

Same problem as before. The steal is good, but the hand hovering over the deck and the stiffness of that hand after the steal are both tells.

By the way, if you want people's help, you might want to cut down on the attitude.

What part do you feel or are claiming is original?

Position of fingers to lever card up, the actual palm position, the displays, the replacement or what?


Will be easier to give feedback and whatnot if you are specific.

As they say, if you're suspected, QUIT!

You can't show your hand 'empty,' because it isn't... All you can do is conceal something in it.

Thanks,

John

P.S. What does it achive that Gamblers, Tenkai or Angle Palm doesn't?
