AACAAAN1 – Almost any card at almost any number, version 1. Paul has performed this routine for the laity for over 25 years. This routine demonstrates the side steal as a secret slip cut.
Just In Case – A card under and in the cardbox routine honed from nightly performances over the bar. This routine demonstrates the side steal into a full classic palm.
