What will he teach?

Palm Sandwich – Progressive three card sandwich – Three Cards Selected then found one at a time between the jokers. The last one is a doozie!

Pocket Rocket – A card to pocket boxed up and fast!

Plunger Aces – Four aces lost and found: one handed face up second deal. (A special mention of Tony Econ whom also had the same idea and have me his blessing to teach and publish my ideas)
