    "Double Lift" variant

The move would be the desired card on the bottom, and using...

    Help Controlling Two Cards

    Hey! I've been practicing magic for about three or four weeks now, and I've come up with a bit of a trick that I'd like to refine. I get the spectator to pick two cards (or two to pick one each) and then I control one to the top and one to the bottom, then huzzah, magic happens. The problem I'm...

    Card Control Worth it (for me)?

    So I've got EATCT, ECT, RRTCM, The Complete Walton, the Card Manipulation series (being in the public domain) and Meir Yedid's Incredible Close Up Magic.

    Ideas to change up my ACR?

    Hiya! As weird as it is, I've never really done an ACR as I felt like it was too overused. That is until recently when I tested one out on someone using a few basic sleights I already knew.

    How to quickly uncrimp cards?

    So whenever I start using the decks a lot it naturally will create some crimps here and there, which is confusing whenever I want to use the crimp as a card control. So is there a quick way to uncrimp the cards so that after uncrimping the next crimp I do is the only one remaining? thx

    Sleight misconception?

    Card Control Question

    Is there a way to control a card (say freely chosen from the middle of the deck) to "x" position from the bottom or top of the deck? (2nd from bottom, 3rd, 4th etc.) I've done some research, but I can't seem to find what I am looking for.
