PLUS like I said earlier and James also...I do not know of a routine that you would need to go into EG with 5 coins right off the top of my head. Smile

You might consider doing Roth's Coins Across (with the gimmick that's often spelled like a naughty word) with the chinese surprise holdout all (or often) in edge grip. That way you do all the steals and productions into and out of eg very cleanly and still have the ability to conceal the other four coins.

You can also avoid this concern by managing the stack in different locations....4 (or 5) in eg as well as another stack in Nowhere palm (I only say this because I'm working out a 4 coin handling of Bejing Trio, since I use 4 coins most of the time anyway).

Thank you for your input everyone. I guess part of my point was how practical people find to use this tecnique for dollars in the real world. I can hide the coins as you did in your video Ed, but to get there without revealing the technique live will take me a lot more practice.

BTW -my Barber halves are so much quieter than my Morgans. My Morgans are from 1872, and although not worth much to my dealer ($6 a coin) they have a lot of surface detail. To make this technique quieter I will be using a combination of wet emory cloth and jewelers rouge to sand the surface down. Anyone else do this? I hate to change the appearance, but they are just too noisy. Opinions requested. Smile

Sorry, Jim, but I'm supposed to call Kainoa first any time I'm tempted to plug my upcoming video projects. Just one of the 13 steps to recovery, you know.

Strangely, the phone call had no effect, so, to answer your question, yes, there will be EG work on the next PoS discs, because the EG is now all over my material. A coins across using EG is likely, but if what you're looking for is a tableless coins across for three, I reccomend the sequence from "Beijing Coins across" on PoS2. Just leave out the three Chinese coins, and you've got a perfectly good standup/strolling coins across. In fact, I have taught just this sequence to magicians looking for an across for tablehopping work.

If you want the latest additions to that routine, I cover an improved second coin sequence, and the advanced psychology on the third, in my lecture notes from the Magic Castle and LVMI lectures, "COINS:Howtowhattowheretowhyto" which will be available soon (I'm told) at Kainoaland.

Okay, end of plug. Gotta stay one step ahead of the guys with the tranquilizer gun.
Is THAT a PALMS OF STEEL 5 Banner I see? YARRRRGH! Please visit The Magic Bakery
