Hi,
Been searching for information on this but getting nowhere.
Could anyone shed some light on how this works please?
Thank you.

I should add I've tried to buy the Gene Finnell book but it's old and out of print. I've looked online for PDFs I could buy but only found a review of it in an old issue called The Tops.

I'm just trying to further my knowledge.
Thanks

Hi Mofman
There is a brief description of the free cut principle in Arthur F. MacTier's book Card Concepts, along with explanations of many other numerical and sequential principles used in card magic. I'm pretty sure this is OOP but you may be able to pick it up second-hand.
Cheers

Hi Cignas,

I've downloaded an ebook called Explorations by Paul Gordon which covers it. Thanks.

Tricks To Go 2
by Werner Miller & Aldo Colombini

A trick called Free Cut Duo utilises the Free Cut Principle
It's a quicker version of the 3 card trick that mismag882 performed and a mathematician worked out.

A fantastic effect using the FCP is called ‘A lucky card’, found in Aldo Colombini’s Impromptu Card Magic Vol. 1. It’s a great DVD series!

John Carey has also at least one trick (in "At the table") with the free cut principle.

The very first Steve Beam Semi-Automatic card magic book has a really great trick based on the free cut principle.
