OverwHelm by J.K. Hartman

Apocalypse by Harry Lorayne
Volume 13, Number 9 September 1990
Page 1833 et seq.

Personal Comment: Finding four lost aces at the same time is something special. I like that a lot. Especially to close an ace routine. Getting into the setup needed fro this particular kind of production is tricky. I have worked on it on my own and found my solution. But Jerry's version is really good. Basically he decided not to have them slowly placed the deck, but to do a few effect, that get you the aces into your setup. Lovely thinking here. The title refers to the first publication of the ending effect called OverWELM... the letters stood for Wakeman, Edwards, Lorayne and Marlo, who each contributed details. So basically Jerry K. Hartman squeezed in his own letter.

Difficulty 3/5
