Tommy wonders routine is all self contained and extremely real world workable. (not to mention one of the biggest foolers out there for magicians)

In looking through this thread I was caught by a post from 2009 in which was said...

"The only disadvantage I see in using a C&B routine [in a competition] is that... nothing new is under the sun."

And then.... 3 years later at FISM.... along comes Yann Frish

Cups and Balls routine seemed to be the many competition acts as far back as the 1960's, I believe it was more of trick the judges could actually judge the skill of the competitor, because they themselves have the knowledge of what such a routine involves. There are many factors judged on and this is one the judges can actually judge on the different categories in the long list of topics they comment on, in the tally sheets.
