Sliding Triumph by Jon Racherbaumer
1984 The Summer Extra Almanac by Richard Kaufman
the Jon Racherbaumer Issue
Page 224 et seq.
Personal Comment: Here is what I like about it. In most Triumph routines the actual "rightening" of the face up into face down cards is not a visual. It is always implied. Usually the deck is squared up then a snap or magic gesture and then the deck is revealed to be in correct condition. Jon's attempt to make the actual magic visual needs to be credited. The way it is, is still far away from being a total worker, but I like the thinking behind it.
