Wow, just wow... you see there is a guy named Mathieu Bitch, or something like that. And he releases a trick called Poor Man's Casino... and guess what it's shit. Utter shit. But first watch the trailer:
If you are amazed you are a fucking retard. if you take away the box it looks like the glide. It's not the glide, but handling looks like the glide.
So here is the thing. It would be stupid to assume that laypeople don't know anything about card tricks. Some principles are actually well known. The key card principle for instance. Also the GLIDE.... you see where I'm going with this?
To a layman this is not the best fucking way to have a card picked under "laboratory conditions" The best way is to give the deck to the spectator and have him take one out. This is the fairest procedure.
So I don't care how clever the principle in the "Poor Man's Casino" is. It looks like a fucking glide, ergo it is not fair.
BTW: If you need to point out that a selection of a card is to be "as fair as possible" then by all means you are doing something wrong. A selection of a card should be "fair" no matter what. To a layperson picking a card has to be above suspicion anyway. If they do suspect anything you ruined the impact of the trick. So to force the thought of possible sneakiness with the introduction of a box with a window in it is the worst of all approaches.
Reminds me of the force where you have the spectator cut the deck under a cloth.
