I was interested in learning a variation of the Five Star Miracle. There's not much to say about this one. I bought it on a whim for $6.95 and don't want to waste much more time on it. If you were to actually perform the prediction as described, there would be no reason to pick up the card stopped at and place it back on the face of the pack before dealing more face-up cards on top of it, only then to spread it face up on the table and have the face-down card removed again.

Stick with Koran's or try similar routines from Thomas Baxter's Open Prediction Project. All $6.95 got me today was a fishy method for performing a s***h. You get what you pay for.

Thanks for the post Mike. I think you point something out important. I hear people say that an effect is good but not worth say $35. I have purchased a lot of $10 or $20 effects that I will NEVER use. I have bought more expensive effects that I do use. The more expensive effects may only be the "secret" but if I use it, then it was a good purchase. In other words, value to me has very little to do with "what you get"--value to me is whether I use it. I would rather pay $100 for something I will routinely use even though it may just be a new presentation with an I*******E D**K that I never thought of than $15 for some unique new effect that I will never use.
