Jumping Bean Aces
Focus by Phil Goldstein 1990
Page 35 et seq.
Personal Comment: This is good. Really good actually. This routine is a version of Elmsley's "1002nd Aces" with an added kicker. It was first published in Scattershot. What I love about the routine is the method and it's design. Very direct and very simple in a way. I have not tried it out for real people yet, but I will. If this plays well I might consider adding it to my repertoire.
In the end you are left with four aces and four kings. That means you could do oil and water style routines, Reset, Jazz Aces and all sorts of stuff. I like it.
