Do you like Bridge size or regular Poker sized cards. I have heard Bridge sized are easier to palm. Let me know what you think.

Bicycle-last longer, look the nicest, different colours, white stripe on the edge around the card, card case is nice. Definately Bicycle for me.

Hockey- he is not asking which brand you like, he is asking whether you like Bicycle Poker sized cards or Bicycle Bridge sized cards.

I like poker, my hands are small but who cares? Besides, poker cards are way common where I am (I know in some places bridges are more common). Besides if someone hands you a poker deck and said do a trick and if you only used bridge sized cards, it would be odd saying sorry I can't, your are cards to big. Its much easier to go to bridge then up to poker. Yes, they are easier to palm becuase they're smaller, but all you need is some misdirection and it doesn't matter. I'd go with poker, unless you live where bridge sized cards are more commonly used.

Just my 2 cents.

Those would probably be the poker sized cards...
I like poker sized cards, bridge sized cards are for wimps :wink:
j/k, they don't really make anything easier, I just like poker sized because I am more used to them, and the spectators are as well.

I would say I have smaller than average hands (but never use it as an excuse for not being able to do a sleight) and I use poker size. They are just more common.

I learned all my sleights with Poker sized, I have tried to use Bridge size, and my hands just won't cooperate with them....
