Help me find this move!

  1. The following is a video of Greg Wilson during the explanation video for "Revolution". It's only 7 seconds long and nothing based on his effect is revealed, but he does a move and says how he has no idea what it's called, which sucks because I want to learn it. Any help is hugely appreciated!

     
  2. The magician he is referencing is Gerald Kosky - http://geniimagazine.com/magicpedia/Gerald_Kosky

    I'm guessing that the move is the Three Card Catch which he published in Karl Fulves Epilogue #17 which was based on Reinhard Müller's Three Card Catch that was published in Epilogue #14. The move also has been published in Harry Lorraine's Trendsetters (p.20), Harry Lorraine's Best of Friends (p.314) and as the Three Card Throw in Darwin Oritz's Scams and Fantasies (p.94). I don't have those books so I can't verify the move -- maybe someone else has those books and can look.

  3. It's a derivation of this move The Martin Lewis Spinner . I have seen a lot of videos where people spin it from all sorts of angles. Although I think the two biggies that all card magicians should know are The Martin Lewis Spinner and the Audley Walsh Spinner which can be found in the Tarbell Course.
     
  4. Gabriel; That's a completely different grip from the one used in the video. I use the long distance spinner all of the time, but your grip on the deck has to be significantly altered, as opposed to a Lennart Green top shot or the aerial move used in the video I originally posted.

    RealityOne; Thanks for the thorough description, but the 3 card catch seems to be more of a revelation move where you have 2 face up cards on either end of the deck, throw the whole deck from one hand to the other, and are left with 3 cards in the hand they were thrown from (being the 2 original face up cards and their selected card face down in the middle).

    I did not know he was saying Gerald Kosky until now, but the 3 card catch is unfortunately not the one I'm looking for. Thank you both for your help, but any additional input leading to the exact move is appreciated.
     
  5. I don't know this specific move but you could look into Top Shot by Lennart Green or Cyclone By Chris Ramsay which look similar and accomplish about the same thing.

  6. So this is what the Behr Archive has on Gerald Kosky

    http://archive.denisbehr.de/show.php?people=235&all=1

    The best Table of Contents for his book, The Magic of Gerald Kosky, that I could find is here:

    If you want to buy the book (with no assurance the move is in there), it is listed here:

    and here:

    My suggestion is to post your question in the Worker's section of the Magic Cafe.
