I was watching a performer last week and I just couldn't believe
how terrible this guy was.
He started off with plucking cards from the air and making them
vanish. (in my opinion not a good idea for a completely surrounded
environment. If you do card manipulations you know how important angles are)..

Next he did a coins across routine wich was actually really good
UNTIL the end. He demonstrated how to do false transfers and
palming basically telling how he did the whole routine.

Finishing up with cups and balls. I counted about 8 times where he flashed. His loads were pretty obvious as well.(let me move my hat
in front of thes cups real quick,etc...)

All in all I thought he was pretty sloppy and not well rehearsed.(my opinion). and he expected tips from everyone.

I know there's guys here like Dave V who busk for a living
and spends hours upon hours rehearsing their material till it is smooth.
If they had seen this guy they probably would have smacked him upside the head...

just my 2 cents worth

I'm surprised you didn't smack him upside the head. I would've.

Was him explaining coins across more of a sucker effect? Or did he flat out expose the method?

I wouldnt be surprised. After seeing people on youtube, google, here and other forums. nothing much surprises me. People will do anything for a quick buck, and dont expect to have to put a lot in.
