Better than Twisting the Aces?

Just re-reading The Collected Works of Alex Elmsley Volume 1 and am re-discovering some great tricks. Elmsley’s take on Vernon’s Twisting the Aces – “Twister’s Flush” is a thing of real beauty. It gives the plot a well needed kicker and in my opinion it’s far better than Twisting the Aces. Plus it makes me realise how underrated and underused the Everchange count is. Genius.

    Agreed! Funny enough I re-read this about a week or two back. Astonished that the Everchange count does everything! No displacements, no ‘setting up’ and then the wicked finish.

    Killer routine.
