Hi

I am investigating the "famous three card trick" by Williamson. I am looking for different versions of the effect to compare it.

Right now I know the version of Dan Garret, Kiko Pastur, Ignacio Lopez and Joaquin Matas.

Did somebody know other versions of this effect?

Thanks!

Are you looking at the effect as in cards repeating? Or specifically for 3 cards repeating? As I'm sure you know this is a variation on the trick from 6 card repeat http://geniimagazine.com/magicpedia/Six_Card_Repeat

Ed Marlo has a couple of versions that are cool, there are some with gimmicks as well. Also Darwin Ortiz gives a nice presentation angle in Strong Magic.

Some other names:
George McBride, (if I remember correctly George's routine was in his first book called Osmosis). *
Aldo Colombini . I've come across this but don't recall where.
Paul Gordon -The Amazing Four Card Trick (Card Collective) 
Paul Hallas, a marketed packet trick called "Wolf at The Door" themed around the three little pigs story. 

The Six Card Repeat, Tommy Tucker's original and some variations are discussed in my book "Small But Deadly" in the chapter called "Tricks You Can Count On".

* Since found it, it's the first item in his book called "One Too Many" . Osmosis was published in January 1995. George mentioned his starting point was Edward Victor's "Eleven Card Trick", which is also referenced in the chapter of my book mentioned above. 

I used to do a George's routine after coming across it. These days if I get the urge to do a version strolling I do Paul Gordon's version, though often for the heck of it finish a la McBride handing the final card to the spectator to deal onto my hand.

I posted a “Perverse Six Card Repeat”  on the Perverse Magic thread of the Genii Forum on July 1, 2012.

 

It is my Perverse Magic presentation of the Six Card Repeat that came to me initially from seeing Senator Crandall do his version at a Magician’s Guild Lecture years ago. His version appears in Tarbell 6.

 

Roy Benson who was my favorite magician so many years ago, had a similar version which appeared in his lecture notes and now appears in Benson By Starlight” on page  229  where the Benson and Crandall versions are compared.

 

The ideas of “looking in the book” (see below) came to me from Roy Benson as he did that during his billiard ball routine when a red ball suddenly appeared during his routine with white balls.

I know this doesn't have to do with the original question, but recently I've been tinkering with the 3 card repeat plot, but with coins.  Does anyone know if there's a precedent for this?  I'm hoping someone else has a routine with a move that allows for me to finish with a fistful of coins.  I was considering using a gaff of some kind, but I'm actually looking to structure the routine around some kind of misdirection...
