Hey Iain, yes you can do so. Bruce mentions a version with business cards in the ebook.

Well, if you ever bought anything from Mr Bernstein in the past you won't hesitate to give him more money ever!

I think it's cool the way you can pull out a full deck and say, let's just use some cards. And deal 20 off the top. Now you're in business.

Or, yes IAIN, you can do this with biz cards. And I suppose ESP cards.

I've studied many versions of this effect and perform several of them both impromptu and with preparation. I have a shorter version with less than a full deck as well as a longer version that I perform in a formal setting. Why would I want to replace my other versions with this one. What does it offer that the others don't? I'm a big fan of Bruce Bermstein and don't doubt this is very good but what advantages does it have that the others don't?

Steve, this detailed description might help you decide. http://brucembernstein.com/saeffect.html

I think if, like me, you're a big fan of the OOTW plot, then you really will appreciate the thinking and structure of this routine. For me, that alone is worth the money.

I have this... and like it.
But as Bruce himself credits, it builds on the terrific work of Jon Armstrong, Brad Henderson and Martin Gardner.

I do like the routine, but if it's the OOTW work specifically you're looking for, and you already have Armstrong's routine...

True, but if you do have Armstrong, you still don't have the second part of this routine, or the psychological reveal at the end.

This is one of those times I loathe the asterisk censoring of The Café. But, I'll self-censor: the routines are excellent and the final reveal is an absolute mind****! Smile

Best,
Vlad

This is a very important argument! I like the very clever thinking behind it. Who knows Armstrong's routine gains still a lot. I have to be so honest to admit that I skipped inadvertently his routine in "Best of all Worlds". So thanks to Bruce to direct me also there and to Brad Henderson.
Personally I would do a mix in the first phase (Berntein / Armstrong) and leave the second phase as it is. Jan

We are one in the same, Jan! I too had skipped over OOTWBBB, and only revisited it after getting SA. I now use the Armstrong clean up for phase 1.

As a mentalist you must always ask yourself what if! And throughout your life you should seek to ask and answer this question over and over again, only then will your wildest dreams become a reality!

Do any of you cats start this off by taking twenty cards off the top and go into it? Or do you simply pull out twenty cards?

I'd love to know the performing conditions needed for this. Can it be done from a borrowed shuffled deck? Is there much of a set up? I might want to purchase this but only if it something I feel I'll actually use. That would mean being able to do it from a borrowed shuffled deck with minimum or no setting up. Thanks.

Minimum setup. Can use borrowed shuffled deck not the way its designed or not the way to maximize its use.

Steve this is a darn good effect. Well worth your time. Borrowed shuffled deck or not. Don't pass this up.

I agree with John's assessment...

I have purchased this and it is certainly up to Bruce's typical high standard. I have not performed this, but from a structural standpoint, my opinion is that "Separation Anxiety" is among a small group of "best" solutions for my needs. Easily worth the price of admission. Highly recommended (as is any of Bruce's material).

With Regards,

Sean
