    Now this is interesting - lovely routine - as is any in Paul's hands. What's interesting is - and I have no idea as to which/what came first - not that it matters here - but...similar idea/handling by Doug Edwards way back in my book, Doug Edwards Packs A Wallop (1997). Then I updated it a bit in Lorayne: The Classic Collection, Vol. 5.   And then...

    Re-did the thing in JAW DROPPERS 1.  As I talk about there - a magician friend said that he had trouble doing the Elmsley Count - so I substituted a peel count for him and for others who may have had the same problem. Anyway - you might want to check it out in Jaw Droppers 1 - it's titled Easier 6-Card Royal and it's the method/presentation I've dropped jaws with for quite a long time.

     If you don't have Jaw Droppers 1 - sorry; sold out. Don't make the same mistake with/for JAW DROPPERS TWO - available right now. (Thanks for the plug opportunity!)

     And again - excellent, as usual, Paul.  (Wish the heck I had more stuff to teach and that I was younger - so that we could to that "at least one card magic book together"!)

     Neglected to mention that it's basically the same concept - but with a royal flush/kicker ending.

Hi Harry. Thanks for your kind words. Much appreciated. Date wise, I first published it in 1989 on/in my Deck In Hand video. Aldo Colombini then asked to use it in one of his booklets a few years after. It then was in/in Powerful Impromptu Card Magic 2 video in 1999 and finally in Gold Dust. Having said all that, Marlo started the ball rolling with the concept (I believe) in the 60s. Yes, doing a book with you would be a dream come true! X Paul

          Just a bit more background...Doug Edwards helped me out - because I'm a lousy researcher. He said, in part --- My Six Card Royal was actually first published in Apocalypse in 1990 and then in 1997 in Packs A Wallop...I came up with the selected card and flush kicker handling in the early 80's...I believe I showed it to you, Harry, in the mid 80's as it wasn't published immediately after I showed it to you...Tommy Tucker's Six Card Repeat Trick is what I based my handling on which certainly dates prior to Marlo that Paul mentions...The kicker ending comes as a total surprise to the spectators...   (It sure does!)

I do a similar trick, it is called Andrea Pancotti's Amazing Four-Card Trick. [biggrin]

Sorry for the bad joke, but i love this one, I use it in combination with Aaron Fisher's Serach and Destroy, and i close with your trick.

I just use a different idea when I have really 4 cards in hand. As my patter is talking about "illusions", I ask the spectator to pick up and discard the top card.
