Sheer poetry from The Dutch Master.

I think that's actually the Eddie Taytelbaum version that Fred is using (or possibly Tonny Van Rhee's)?. Ken Brooke used to sell it decades ago.

I'd love to get my hands on one of the originals nowadays. Smile

The first hardbound one from Tannen's. Of course, each of these was published singly long before the hardback came out. But the hardback is much easier to find.

I like to perform this with a TUC as its much cleaner and allows a nice clean up subtlety at the end.

This statement on this old thread caused me to codify the ways in which I have been "palming from a flat surface" for decades.

Since I didn't know it was impossible I just did it. It was 2006 before I saw the Roth Presentation on DVD.

I immediately modified this to allow for different end positions in repeat performances, requiring several Sway Methods.

I documented some of these in "T.U.C. Appreciation" where Chink-a-Chink is discussed as a method of sneaking in the TUC (or other gaff) rather than instrumental to the effect itself.

Thus, I think there is a point o CaC that is overlooked (but mentioned by Laurence O above. A critical part of the effect id concealment and extraction of the 5th element.

For me, the static ending of this wonderful effect risked "tipping method," so I thought of ways to change it.

The ability to pick up the extra coin from the flat table and secretly transfer it to another hand adds a new dimension -- but one possibly only impressive to magicians.
