I think it is very strange that so many people do Chicago Opener with the Hindu Shuffle. It's totally unnecessary for that trick.


The point I was really trying to make was not about the merits of the Hindu Shuffle. It was more about the tendency many of us have to slavishly copy every detail of a trick rather than personalise it.
I remember a while back looking at many YouTube videos of a particular effect [unfortunately I can't remember which one]. In about 90% of those videos exactly the same card was "selected"III

Changing selection procedures.



I said "consistency goes in the rubbish".
That's why l chose to use the same procedure, the Hindu Shuffle, for both selections.
As in Card College 5 description.

Yep. Depends on the context.

I think a lot also depends on the distance between the performer and the spectator...

Thanks!

What do you think of Ekaterina's performance of the Chicago Opener effect that doesn't use the Hindu Shuffle?

Thanks!

Best regards


By the way, l liked her script a lot. Not the usual "blushing" or "shy" card ...
Does anyone know if it's original with her?

First time I come across it.

In a blog by Bill Wisch, Slydini-The Legend, he shares "Slydini's Hindu Delay".
A number of other worthwhile lessons are shared here also.
