hello everyone!! I need help in performing the above trick. the routine is I have a total of nine cards, 4 are the 9 of clubs, the other 5 are the queen of hearts. I do not like using the hammon count on this effect, it just doesn't work for me. is there any other way I can show the cards before I place them on the table an start the effect? thnx[confused]

You can't do any better than watching Tommy Wonder do his version of Wild Card.

Derek Dingle's version of Gypsy Curse has an alternative count that you might find useful. It is found in Dingle's Deceptions by Richard Kaufman. (gypsy's Curse is, after all, a wild card routine.)

Slight correction, Anthony.  Gypsy Curse (a great recommendation, by the way) is in Derek Dingle's Complete Works - not in Dingle's Deceptions.

   Thanks Amazer. Be good if any information given - was the correct information. No?

Thank you, sir! Instead of editing my post, I will allow your - major, not slight - correction to stand. 'ppreciate the assist.

Dingle's Deceptions is, of course, penned by the incomparable Harry Lorayne.

     That's me - an incomparable penner!    (On the other hand, just glanced over another thread in the forum - people saying that the old stuff is better for them, silly to keep learning new, new and new stuff. And that stuff in older books was good stuff for the folks at that time --- and other drops of knowledge.  Makes me feel as if I wasted all those years, and current years, writing books, teaching "new.")

Harry-- I think I might be one of the heretics you refer to. Please read my post carefully and you'll find out that I do not disparage any author or books. In fact, my statements in that regard were limited to tricks, not books. More specifically I was defending older tricks that the OP referred to as outdated.

I also wrote that I consistently fool both magicians AND laypeople with material from the older books. And your books are a big part of that. I grew up on your books and still do tricks/moves from those books. For a number of years, my repertoire consisted mostly of material from your books.

So I'm not a heretic! [biggrin]
