I wasn't particularly impressed with the way the Vernon double lift was taught in "Stars of Magic", but I think Richard Kaufman teaches it pretty well in his "Basic Card Technique" DVD/Video.

(My apologies for resurrecting this thread, but I felt the information on the Vernon DL was worth sharing.)

I've used the one from Expert Card Technique for years among others I've learned since then.

If he's good at misdirection, he should have no problem in pushing off two cards and getting a little finger break without being noticed.

Vernon's double lift is my favorite.

For a beginner I'd recommend starting with a pinky break under the top 2 cards. Once double lifts under this starting scenario are mastered I'd move to some push off methods which don't require a pinky break get ready.

Take care,

Ron Bauer's TTT Technique. And yes, I know that since I've published it I risk being accused of being prejudiced, but anyone who's seen it will know that it's
the best out there.

I can recommend where I started, and that was the Hit Double Lift from Stars of Magic.

Teach your friend that the best double lift is the one that isn't noticed.

Now that's the best piece of advice of all that anyone has given IMHO! I must agree with wsduncan 100% and that advice is hard to be consistent with! Whatever DL is used, the trick is to be unnoticed when performing it.

I'm surprised that no one mentioned Lee Asher's Diving Board Double. I use it quite a bit. It takes a little getting used to (stretching the thumb) but it is a nice double lift one you get it down.
