I keep getting card tricks where the instructions require you to perform a buckle but they NEVER give good instructions on how to perform it.

Where can I get crystal clear (down to exact finger positioning and points of pressure) on buckling?

Thanks!

Depending on the trick, if it's a packet rather than full deck trick, an alternative may be a multiple push off. Ken Brooke preferred this to a Buckle count.

Thank Rudy! That would be great. 

Paul:

The trick I am currently jammed on because of the buckle is Dan Harlan's presentation of wild card "Walk on The Wild Side".

I don't think a multi/block push off would cut it for this particular handling. The reason for the buckle is to do this bizarre bottom deal double turn over move I have never seen.

Re" "..this bizarre bottom deal double turn over move I have never seen."

Sounds fun. [smile] It could probably be re-engineered.

Paul: It certainly is weird. While grabbing the packet with the left hand the right brings a card (wild card gaff queen side up) and lays it face up on top of the packet of 9's. You perform a buckle and slightly jog the bottom card (ungaffed 9) to the right and square the corners of the top and bottom card with the packet in between. You then turn the top card AND bottom card over as though they are one card and lay both on top of the packet. You then turn the top card face up again to show the queen is now a 9 and then proceed to count through the 9's showing the queen is not there.

I've thought of simply bringing the real 9 from the rear to the face of the packet while "the business" is going on in their hand. Maybe a "single file" face up shuffle display to reorder the cards accordingly. When the queen is introduced to my packet then perform a simple double lift turn over followed by a single card turn over. It's a far easier and less fiddly way to achieve the exact same outcome.I love Dan Harlan's wacky style but the proposed method in his routine is needlessly convoluted.

Hi,
if I am not mistaken there is a solid analysis of this move by Paul R. Wilson on the DVD "Extreme Possibilities Vol 4" in the effect "DDT Open Prediction". Now at L&L epub as a download for less than 13 $.

Your thought seems very reasonable to me. I can't see that you lose anything by doing that. [smile]
