What will he teach?
Aces to Order
A method for cutting to the Aces in any order you wish – including an order chosen by your spectators. It looks like you’re really cutting to the Aces because you really are cutting to the Aces!
A unbelievable demonstration of skill with a riffle shuffle. A group of widely separated cards are controlled and stacked for a game of poker with only a single shuffle. After the shuffle the spectators could deal if they wanted to, because the cards really have been stacked to fall in the proper places.
A quick gambling expose that Jason has used countless times to blow away his audiences.
He’ll also teach work on the Zarrow Shuffle, all in depth work on Bottoms Deals, Center Deals, 2nd Deals and even 3rd deals and MUCH more.
Because he’s known for doing the tough moves with cards, he’ll spend some quality time helping you with your technique issues.
