.... Have two cards chosen by two different people then lost back into the deck whilst controlling one to the top and one to the bottom. So far I can either overhand shuffle them or use undercuts, but I am looking for a more natural way (than the undercut for the second one at least.) I cannot do a pass to save my life so any alternative will be greatly appreciated.

Even considered using a tilt to bottom control. Lol it's easy but works. Haha

It's easy to think of a trick as modular: selection, then control, then the rest of the trick. That's not true, however. These all work in tandem, and each one affects the other. So, two questions:

How are you having the cards selected? And what is the effect?

I will have two cards selected by two different spectators then lost. Each spectator will then find their own card using a joker. They deal till they are happy then place the faceup joker there. I think the original idea is called Geminii twins (unless I am thinking of a different effect.) it is the same Handling as Lenart greens "stolen cards" after the selections have been controlled.

I am considering using my "double dribble control" to control both selections to the top, then just before handing the deck out to be dealt (while in patter) casually passing the top card to the bottom or undercut it there. It is sort of a "let the spectaror be the magician" sort of deal.

To see what I am talking about, watch my effect "tu tu Transpo." I will basically be using the same intro for this as well. Smile

Hi Michael,

If you like the idea of spread and select naturally, you may consider using Emran Riaz's Shinobi Control or Paul LePaul's Spread Pass for the top card, and Marlo's Convincing Control for the bottom card.

This is probably my most direct way to control both selections; one to the top and one to the bottom simultaneously.

First I'll spread 1/3 of the deck and let the 1st spectator selects a card freely by touching it.
Then I secretly cull this card and continue spreading another 1/3 for the 2nd spectator to select a card.
Next, I close the spread, keeping a break between the two selections, and execute the Spread Pass invisibly.
Bammo! The 1st selection goes to the bottom and the 2nd selection rises to the top simultaneously.

By the way, Spread Pass is easier than you think! Smile

Select the first and replace. Cull the card as you go through for another selection, having that replaced as well deposit the culled card on top of that second selection, mantaining a break, then double undercut from the break.
In addition you can execute an overhand shuffle to mantain the top and bottom stock, or a riffle shuffle.

Control both cards to the bottom and milk shuffle bottom card to get one to the top of the deck.
