If anyone was wondering what I have been doing magic-wise in the many months of not updating this blog, the topic explains it all. The DPS is explained in “Expert at the Card Table”. Rarely done by magicians, but if seen in the hands of an expert, its a thing of beauty. The mechanics of the move is something all sleight of hand should achieve.
Now, I do not claim to be an expert of the move. I have only been doing it for 4 months but I do feel I am qualified to show students of the move some tips and pointers that will help them along. I won’t teach the move in full detail since I strongly feel that this move is something only learned completely if one goes though the trails and errors to make it perfect.
The learning process of the diagonal palm shift will perfectly demonstrate what YOU, as the magician should go through with every sleight of hand. The DPS is not forgiving to the lay men’s eyes. You can get away with a poor double lift, but the DPS is not as forgiving. That is the main reason that only seasoned magicians perform the move in public.
So here is a video of me doing the move and a few pointers on the sleight. Throughout the coming weeks, I will be adding more pointers on the move. If anyone wants to upload their DPS and show it on the blog, I’ll be more than glad to do so. If you don’t think the DPS has any applications, trust me when I say this… I have came up with some amazing tricks that use the DPS exclusively. It has more applications than just stealing a card out of the middle.
