Gary's Lecture Notes from the Super Session in Dallas, Texas which was held on March 28, 2004. Contents include:
A Card Control
Lie Detector - Gary's version of the Lie Detector plot that puts the plunger principle to good use. Based on an effect of Dai Vernon's .
Card in Matchbox - Gary's version of James Swain's routine. A selected card magically vanishes and reappears inside a matchbox.
You Name It, I'll Flush It - The magician stacks a royal flush from any named suit for a 10-handed poker deal.
Match Me - Magician and assistant both shuffle half of the deck. When they trade randomly selected cards, they find the cards are always mates. This is repeated several times, and at the end the magician and the spectator end up cutting the four aces.
Bits and Piece- An effect of Paul Swinford's that he asked Gary to publish after his passing. A playing card is torn to pieces. The spectator is asked to name a number. The number helps locate the only two pieces that can identify the card.
A Mathematical Card Trick - A selected card is located using a strange mathematical principle.
Never Fails - A sucker effect Gary uses when someone asks him to teach them a trick.
Casino Royal- Pennies are placed in small piles in a rectangular pattern. The rows are counted. A penny is added to any pile and yet the number of pennies in each row remains the same.
