Cry Wolf by Phil Goldstein

Focus by Phil Goldstein 1990
Page 58 et seq.

Personal Comment: I think this trick is a joke by Phil. He put that trick in the book giggling to himself... I cannot believe that he was serious about it. This routine uses pretty much every false count there is. It uses the Jack Avis' Siva Count, the Victor Eye Count, the Elmsley Count, the Castillion Spirit Count and Phils own Snap-Turn Count. This routine must be a joke. Or maybe it is a demonstration piece. Painters do demonstration paintings. Usually those would include a portrait, a still, a nude, landscape, sky, animals, buildings and all sort of thing to showcase the painter's abilities as an artist. The same seems to be true for Cry Wolf. If you wanna study false counts, go on study this routine. I won't bother anymore.

Difficulty 5/5
