I was talking to an experienced magician about 4 ace effects when he asked me to show him one. So I did Vernon's "Cutting the Aces", which I was practicing at the time. He then said, "Kid, you can tell a magician by the four ace tricks they do. Begginers do fast, snappy tricks, while mature mature magicians do nice magical ones." That has alway stuck in my head and has often turned out to be true. I have yet to learn a flashy 4 ace trick.
Bill Malone...? Greg Wilson...? Chris Kenner...? hope that experienced magician wasn't ray anderson.....
