I do, although your move is not original. The earliest use I know of it, is by Michael Vincent. I can't remember where, but he has a gambling routine that is based entirely around that move. Still a cool concept though, props for coming up with it on your own.

Sadly, I doubt it. There are some seriously crazy card technicians entering this contest. If it comes down to your chops with sleight of hand.. I don't think you or I stand a chance. That's why I tried thinking up something.. A little outside the box.

QUOTE=j.bayme;396655]Last week, we released a new instructional video by one of magic's foremost historians and card technicians: Jason England. The move is called The Single Card Straddle Pass, and based on discussion with Jason England and Bill Kalush, its history goes back to the late 1800's. Tonight's contest is inspired by that video, although you can use WHATEVER moves you want.

The challenge is simple. Show a single playing card at the start of your video, show the rest of the deck to prove all of the cards are different. Then, use any combination of moves, shuffles, or deals to thoroughly mix the cards up. At the end of the video, the original card shown at the beginning must be on top. And you need to prove it. In simplest form, under impossible conditions, you need to maintain control of a single playing card.

The rules are simple - there is only ONE rule. No duplicates. The card shown at the beginning must be the exact card shown at the end of the video. You have 24 hours to make your video and post in response to THIS forum thread. You can upload your videos to YouTube or Vimeo, and post the link here. The deadline is 7:30pm EST on Sunday. Videos can be as long or short as you wish, but no longer than 90 seconds at max.

Be sure to show the card clearly at the beginning and end of your video. Everything that happens in between is up to you - but the more deceptive, the better. Make us believe that there is NO WAY you could keep control. If you can fool our judging panel, you just might take home the prize.

What's up for grabs? 1,000 Elite Member Points and a brick of 12 of Jason's favorite cards: Aristocrats.[/QUOTE]

Wow.. I know my entry didn't exactly stick hard to the rules and include shuffles after the fact, but that's because I wanted the purity of the control straight-to-the-top to be undiluted. So, if my entry is ignored I won't be surprised. Xdelamuertex however has taken ignoring the rules to a whole new level, lol.

This contest did end an hour ago right? 7:30 eastern standard time...
