Hi. Not much more than the subject. I do have some incredible advanced work for viz. " The Paper Engine." Looking for something a mortal might do. It's probably right in front of me.

Thanks for any help.

It's covered in an number of books...  Close up Card Magic, Ultra Cervon has a lot of work on it, Complete Works of Derek Dingle, Scams and Fantasies with Cards, to name a few.  Hopefully you have one of them.

I think the Christ Twist is described in The Classic Magic of Larry Jennings.

Thank you everyone.

I've heard this said more than once... "nice to have many books."  But that is another story.  I'd include many DVDs as well [smile]

With the help of you'all I found the sources I had + one that was right there "Richard Kaufman's On The Pass" DVD.  An excellent video.

So thanks - I do have a source now (more than one).  Much appreciated.

No such a thing as "best," really. As always it comes down to the individual and material. Anyway….

Roy Walton is a dab-hand and his out-of-print booklet "Spread Half Pass," is worth a look. Though probably not at the prices I’ve seen it offered. He revisits it in his "Complete Walton" books.

"Card College" volume [4] describes the move and it’s followed immediately by "The Christ Twist".

I was scribbling this just before your current post cropped up, so it's a bit superfluous. Still, if you have "Card College" and any Walton material, they're worth referencing.

Hi Blathermist, not superfluous nor unappreciated.  I do have all five Card College books and saw that, as usual, Mr. Giobbi, does a fine job of covering the topics.

Was looking for something a bit different and with the help of this forum, found it.  That DVD I mentioned is quite unusual in it's brevity and completeness. Excellent visuals and a bit of history to boot.  Four stars (but that is only my opinion - please see below).

Yeah, I'm with you on "best."  I overuse that term.  In context I mean "favorite."  But again it's all individual.  Just had this situation happen two days ago.  One source (different move) was, to me, arcane, another, completely understandable.  Sorry about that.

Thank you!

You're welcome tmfbls!!
I forgot to mention that Giobbi also references a certain "Best Of Friends". Now who's that by, I wonder? [smile]

In the most recent TMF lecture, Steven Youell demonstrated some passes. If you paid for it, you already have it at your disposal...

Aaron Fisher's "Gravity Half Pass" isn't easy but it looks great. Otherwise the "Christ Twist" added to a standard handling covers a multitude of sins and looks fairly natural. It looks like an all around square up but covers the tells.
