So I was going through 'Card Tricks Without Skill' by Paul Clive, and he mentions this thing called the 'Mock Pass'.  I read through the description and I was stunned - it seemed too bold, too obvious and, well, just plain crazy, lol [smile]

But he mentions that magicians do use and get away with this.

Really?  Do you use it?  Do you know anyone who does?  Am I looking at this wrong in thinking that it just wouldn't work?

Are you referring to what is more commonly known as the Bluff Pass, perhaps? If so, then yes, it works and works well if properly executed. If we get this topic moved over to the Session Room we could get into the dynamics and nuances. In the meantime, if you have Card College, Giobbi covers the technique in volume 3.

No, it's not the bluff pass, I don't think.  Someone more knowledgeable can confirm that, perhaps.  Yes, sorry - if it was moved to Sessions I could perhaps explain the move as written in the book.

Sent you a private message. That was a book I had when I was a beginner in magic. I think I actually met Paul Clive once. He had a magic/joke shop in Blackpool many, many years ago.

Well, it's definitely not the same as the bluff pass [smile]
