Nullified by Tom Stone
Vortex by Tom Stone (and Steven Minch) 2010
Page 117 et seq.
Personal Comment: Well it is Reset. But a parlor version. Which is a rather nice thing. It is difficult though. And according to Tom Stone solved the inherent dramatic problem of Paul Harris' Reset. I disagree, the motivation of making them go back because aces are much better cards is an argumentation I don't fully agree on. Also, this is designed to be a parlor pieces so duplicates aces in the pocket would be my personal choice of method. That way you could actually prove that the aces really are in the pocket as you could briefly show them, before making the kings in the glass turn back into the aces.
PS. Vortex is a really, really nice book, even though the card stuff save a few exceptions is filler. Sorry Tom!
