This lecture will feature some more advanced card moves as well as diabolically clever self-working and almost self-working routines which are within the grasp of beginning and intermediate card handlers and give the illusion of incredible skill.
Each three-hour workshop will be tailored to match the needs and requests of the group. Some of the topics include:
False Deals – Detailed descriptions “from the ground up” to help you learn the Second Deal (push off and strike deals), the modern Bottom Deal, and the fabled Center Deal.
Palming – Classical methods of palming from Erdnase including top and bottom palms for single and multiple cards and more recent developments including the Gambler’s Cop and Gambler’s Flat Palm.
False Shuffles – False shuffles suitable for use at the table including technique and routines with the Push-Through Shuffle and Riffle Stacking.
G.P.S. – As the production consultant of the of the recently re-released Gambling Protection Series DVDs by legendary card-handler Steve Forte, Jason is able to speak about many of the moves and sequences from this set, including 52.
“Jason England is the modern day Erdnase! … His lecture and workshop will give you a full understanding of what real card work is all about”
-Joe Pon, Misdirections Magic Shop
Jason England is no slouch with a deck of cards. But more importantly, he is an excellent teacher. He goes beyond showing you just how the technique works which allows you to learn to do it as well (with a few years practice). His workshop provides amazing value to anyone interested in learning to perform these techniques properly.
