i kinda like yours better lol. whatever lol
To be honest I didn't like either, both could use improvement really.
Both have the big problem of: you guys know what showmanship is, it just goes out the window when you're performing the sleight. chris, your lead-up to the sliding motions looked nice, and I was ready for a nice Erdnase (for once), but it didn't happen. Soon as the sliding motion happened, hand became stiff as wood, then it turned into a sleight demonstration rather than a piece of magic. Keenan, along similar lines, it looked really wooden to start off with while you were doing the sliding, and then it looked nice after the moves were done.
Even if you have a look at the T11 1 on 1, the actual sliding is barely noticable. Certainly, there's no taped-fingers feel to it. Alternatively, look at Jon Racherbaumer's Card Finesse II for a great solution to wooden hands during sliding.
You got my vote.
Thanks for the comments, I do see what you mean.
Voting is still open until the 17th!
