The Whirl Flourish is often credited to French Magicians... with Rocco being the first to do it here. Rocco's version used some wax on his fingertip though... This topic has been discussed at length before.

PS - I an not sure which person is to credit for the longer/extended version (published in the Encyclopedia).

Isn't it called the Pirouette?

Some people call it the whirl flourish and some call it the Pirouette. Ive seen it under the name Pirouette in some books though but never as "The Whirl Flourish"...

The first was in the 1800s by a Polish Card manipulator. I can't pronounce the polish name for it though.lol

Whirl Flourish was published in Jon Racherbaumer's "Card Finesse Volume 2". It is the first thing in the book.

Pirouette and the spin Jerry does in the Bible isn't the same. Jerry spinns it like you would spin a firsbee
