Hey, can anybody tell me where I can learn this, either from Garcia's work or elsewhere?

Many thanks in advance!

Not in any Frank Garcia books I've got, where did you hear about it?

As a suggestion, dylan:

Send Mr. George Schindler an e-mail, and ask him if it's in print?
(If anyone knows, he does!)

showbiz10@aol.com

(He owns Show-Biz Services)

Good luck!
Warmest regards, Smile

Dylan, is it connected to a trick? I have all his books and spent time with him
and not sure of the Buffalo shuffle.

Yes, I have his books and videos and don't recognise the reference. Can you describe what it looks like?

Sorry guys, Lee Asher told me it was Garcia's Buffalo Shuffle.

It's in this video, like a choppy table shuffle..., done with a side on face up deck...
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L_htHzYWtAg.

I emailed Lee and asked him.

Cheers guys, your help's much appreciated!

You're probably talking about Maximus Control.

Hi again, dylan:

Could you correct the You Tube link? (Comes up malformed)
(I have an old vhs tape showing Mr. Garcia doing a nice shuffle, he just said it's
something that he invented. No name given. Card stab effect. Just want to see
if it's one and the same.)

Thanks! Smile

If you're talking about the move done around the 54 second mark, I know that as the "affas-gaffas" shuffle. It was part of his Triumph handling aka "New York opener" described in one of the exclusive books-don't recall which.

New York Opener is in Exclusive Card Secrets, but I believe that Denis is correct in identifying this as The Maximus Control, used to retain the top card.

The old "period after a link" bug strikes again.

This one will work.

EDIT: Of course I have no clue why the link isn't to the shuffle but rather the nugget secret. Maybe the wrong link was provided in this thread.

Thanks guys, didn't realise the link didn't work, apologies!
ive done a little bit of research since mr behrs post and I think it is the maximus control,!, I had to use the jerrys video as at the time, I believed it was called the buffalo shuffle and as such I couldn't find a link to it.
the jerrys video is where I first saw the "control" believeing it to be a shuffle..(magician fooler?..Smile.)
thanks everyone, hope it mite of caught a few ppls attention..now I just have to locate super subtle card miracles..any ideas?..

warm regards.

It pops up from time to time on ebay, usually in the $80 - $100+ range.

Frank also does it (albeit briefly) on his Stars of Magic dvd, its not that hard to work out from watching him doing it and knowing hes retaining the top card.
