Hi guys I have been doing magic for the past 6 month and I'm facing with this issue: When to Overproof and when to Fake a Slide. With Overproof a mean showing the spectator what are you not doing, somethign like: - Saying a double it's one card. - Saying the deck it's not marked. - Showing the card it's in the middle of the deck. This can happens if you are or aren't doing those things, you could be lying or telling the truth. The point it's saying those things. With Fake a Slide a mean acting like you are doing something but actually you'r not, something like: - Keeping the hand close as if you where palming a card but you aren't. - Moving the deck as if you are controlling a card but you aren't - Making a fast move to hide a move that never happened. You could do this to distract the audience to focus on something that isn't important or to deal with hecklers, but I don't know if it's a good thing to do. I hope I explain my point. What are you thought on this subject?
