I'm pretty sure Elliott just meant how do you palm a coin when you're surrounded. It sounds like he knows how to palm a coin, just not how to palm it so that the angles are covered if people are surrounding him, or looking at him from a less then pleasurable angle.

I know how to palm a coin but my question is how do you perform it surrounded as fallinblood says.

I say just have 2-3 different routines, so you change routines throughout each table. So IF they DO look, they'll be suprised...

You do it the same way you would palm a coin if only one person was watching. You just need to be more sensitive of your angles. If you are classic palming, for example, rest your dirty hand on the table (while misdirecting with you empty hand, of course) to keep people behind you from seeing.

The technique doesn't change, just your presentation and choreography.

Like when you are palming coins, can't they see everything.
Keeping a break, misdirection, dumping something, stealing something from the table,...
How do you guys handle this?

Thank you very much
Elliot Carver


I do walk around and table magic ... I had a few times that people were watching me but the only thing you need to do is moving your body around. Don't stand still while performing and when I'm infront of the people who saw me perform, I'll do something else. If you repeat your routine for them, The other table and this group will see that you've repeated the same trick. So YOU ARE NOT SPECIAL and the people you performed for are also not special.

But, main key = to move your body, block their view!

hope this will help you
