Brent is very generous with this download. It’s over 40 minutes if I remember correctly, and he
teaches the move very well and explores what you can accomplish with the move. He also teaches a
spread control in this download, holy %$&@ that move is good. There’s also a 4 card routine you can
perform with the cap, and there’s also a gimmicked version. The gimmick he demonstrates is great and
could be used for many things. Do yourself a favor, and get this, and everything Brent Braun

I don't do a lot of work at the table, as I mostly do parlor magic, but this video really makes me
want to start doing much more!
Brent has been one of my favorite teachers for years. He
explains things very clearly and with great detail. Anytime he has something new lately, I trust him
and purchase it, and this was no exception.
There was much more to this video than I expected
and is so well worth it. Coincidentally, I was actually recently thinking about doing something
involving capping which this will help with a lot, but even better, this video had information on
how to improve one of my all time favorite routines to perform, specifically! In addition, he
explains some things that I had never even heard of before, that will allow for endless
I can't recommend this enough to anyone that has even a remote chance of doing
card work at the table because even if you already do traditional capping, Brent's extra attention
to detail will make you rethink what you have been doing and greatly improve upon it!

Enjoyed through detailed explanation of Capping by Brent.
Well shot video
Another tool to
utilize in the real world.

Sitting around a table late night at a convention, Brent fooled me badly and seriously impressed me
with his work on capping the spread. He has taken these methods through the real world and finessed
them beyond belief.
The techniques and effects that Brent teaches here are absolute gold.
If you work at the card table, the possibilities with capping are immeasurable. If you don’t work at
the table, this download will make you want to.

The video contains a true wealth of detail on this Capping technique.
Brent is a skilled
teacher. His patient and detailed style is very effective. The video is 40 minutes of good, strong
instruction that includes several very clever applications for this. You are not getting just one
trick. This is a valuable technique, worth the little practice required.

I really appreciate any video that does NOT start with a filtered walk through the desert with deck
in hand and light techno music.
This video is far less formal and is packed with good
information, and multiple demonstrations. I do recommend it. The move isn't difficult, and it's
covered thoroughly with a lot of nice ideas and touches.
I did take one star off, because he
did lose my attention from time to time. One can see Mr. Braun has a lot he'd like to get through
(and he does try to explain and demonstrate thoroughly) but his cadence is fairly quick and is
perhaps a bit too consistent. I also became distracted by the low level repeating musical motif
under the video.
Warning, Brent has created something addictively clever, you’ll fool yourself, you’ll fool
magicians. This is my new method for introducing a stack to a freely shuffled deck. Several
approaches are well explained, jump on this and don’t limit yourself with just “any” four-card
routine. I’m heading to Blackpool and looking forward to fooling magicians with this.
The level of detail and thought Brent shares here is Wonderful! This is obviously a real world
worker. Very happy with this.
Five stars for four reasons:
1. As a hobbyist, I find this exceptionally thorough and
clear, not just technically but also in regard to presentation and its versatility for a variety of
effects. Be sure to watch til the end for the full benefit of the logistics of the hold out
including sight lines.
2. The title move is ingenious and simple, simple enough even for a
hobbyist (albeit with practice), and can be done for any of a myriad variation of effects that, with
just a little foresight mixed with opportunism, can be brought up and worked in a casual setting.
3. Brent is thorough not just in explaining the title move but in describing the moves that
his is meant to improve upon.
4. There are some bonus effects, and while gaffes are
required, they are simple and generally makeable at home with little investment in time or money.
Note: “effects” isn’t the right word, but neither is “moves.” What he gives is a tool, I suppose.
I would love for this to be in print format. While I have a large electronic library, my
preference remains with books and pamphlets. Granted, the demonstrations would not be nearly so
clear that way, so that would be its own drawback.
Well worth the price.
