Rock On – Jon Racherbaumer – April 2010

ROCK ON – 3 April 2010 – Jon Racherbaumer TONY SLYDINI (September 1, 1900 – January 15th, 1991) Slydini was a rarity. One of the downsides of being one of a kind is that when a rarity passes from the scene, he or she is extinct. What remains for a while are fragments and shadows. […]


Personally Speaking – Jon Racherbaumer – Jan. 2010

ROCK ON – Jon Racherbaumer I am very proud and fortunate to have my good friend and respected magician/author – Jon Racherbaumer, providing contributions for Stevens Magic Emporium.

I admit Iíve used it mostly for magicians and it has left them baffled; the few laymen Iíve performed it for had no clue whatsoever and everyone Iíve performed it for were surprised to be holding their selection at the end […]


Paul Cummins – Intuitive Poker

Columnist: Paul Cummins This, the last formal installation of my column for GeMiNi, is a Poker routine in which the spectator apparently does all the straightforward choosing and discarding of cards yet somehow finds a royal flush for themselves. Over probably hundreds of performances (this one is only about five years old), it has been […]
