Definitely wouldn't play poker with him!

Forget poker... I wouldn't even play "GO FISH" with that guy.

If Woodworking is so much fun why isn't it called WoodFUNNING?

I've made a few videos

I don't know if I could put up with the poker face. Watch his sleeves, the cards are in the sleeve.

Those are good guesses, as where else could they be kept. I am trying to picture how he gets in his hands exactly what he wants. IOW, how does he control dispensing so fast?

Sincerely, I have no idea where the cards came from.
There are many times that he lift his hand and the sleeves are too far from the hand.

They are not all in the sleeves, if you watch his rear hand and ignore the first one you can see some of the movements. They are in the sleeves, inside the coat, in the hem of the tux front, in his pants pockets. Basically everywhere. To say he must be ambidextrous is obviously an understatement. While the location of the cards might not be magic, his ability to conquer his sympathetic reactions within his brain certainly are close.

I agree, he presents perfectly. Cards hare easy to hide when presented flat, paint a decks sides black against a black outfit and they disappear. I have no clue how he does some of it but it certainly is talent.

He's got some serious skills, but for pure showmanship, there's none better than Penn and Teller. At least for my money. I love how they do the trick and then, often, they explain exactly how it's done. Their premise is "we'll show you... but can you pull it off?"

Penn and Teller are the greatest.
