Hi all. I have been doing the classic pass for a while now... a few years... but I have become very critical of the flashing of late and am looking for advice on the best resource I can purchase to assist with the classic pass. I prefer a video tutorial in comparison to books for the pass. Maybe I need to change my technique or angle, I am not sure. Any advice would really be appreciated.

I've been working on mine for a bit. I got a lot of benefit out of Alex Pandrea's. (Where I learned the original Moves) and Jay Sankeys) where I learned more refining details.

That said, I am still working hard to refine my own pass, but these guys both have pretty burnable passes, so they are worth checking out.

If someone's pass is "burnable" doesn't that mean it can be seen by a spectator burning the conjurer's hands? I don't understand how the word burnable can be used to mean something like "burn-proof" or invisible. My understanding is that an invisible pass cannot be seen even with the spectator burning the artist's hands, therefore a good pass should NOT be burnable. Where have I gone wrong?

In addition, I would recommend tutorials by either Jason England and/or Jonathan Kamm (he call it a pro-torial).

I would also say Jason England's is top notch. When I was focusing on the pass I checked out many resources, and got the most value out of his video and Expert at the Card Table, personally.

Thanks all. Has anybody here purchased Akira Fujii's dvd on the classic pass? If so... do you recommend it. I see many people recommending Pandrea's tutorial. Thanks again.

Not to add to the confusion but check out Jonathan Kamm tutorial on the Pass.
He has many videos on Youtube. He sells the Pass tutorial on his website.

Steven Youell's, if you can find it somewhere. Not the classic pass, but a variation using ideas from various sources.

Just for reference it is called the "Mongrel Pass". And it is very good.

Maybe something is getting lost in the translation, but "burnable" has come to be a term which describes a move that can be studied closely and NOT seen. So in reference to the pass, it would mean a spectator can look directly at the cards during the move and not detect that the packets have transposed. It does NOT mean that they will not detect any action necessarily. If you are using a riffle cover, they will of course see the riffle, but they won't see the exchange. If doing a dribble pass, they won't notice the two halves changing places. The only motion they are aware of is the dribble.

Hope that helps.

Thanks for clearing this up. I know you are correct...but it still don't make no sense to me. LOL
